Re: New to Kickstart, trying to add custom packages to DVD Repo.

Excellent Tip! This worked for me! My setup i am using MAC OSX and VMWare Fusion for testing purposes. I have my custom kickstart on the CD and I have modified the isolinux.cfg to append "ks=cdrom:/ks.cfg" to the default linux and disabled the prompt. This kicks off the custom install with my ks.cfg file. I did a install of RHEL Server to a VM and mounted the RHEL Server ISO. Once mounted i copied the contents of the DVD to /media/rhel. Once copied i created an addons directory inside the Server folder (/media/rhel/Server/addons). I copied isomaster and the supporting xdg-utils rpm to the addons folder. At this point o ran the command you provided: > createrepo --update -g repodata/comps-rhel5-server-core.xml . This generated new files in the repodata folder. I copied these files and the addons folder to the ISO (using MagicISO on Windows) and saved the ISO. Back to the VM, i created a new VM and configured it to boot the new custom ISO and once installation is completed i logged in and isomaster is installed. thank you very much for the excellent support and assistance.
