Hi Adrian,

 

I’ve done that and it’s working perfectly.

 

Thanks for the pointer

 

Cheers

Hi Michael,

Why not include generic name:

%include /tmp/repo.txt
%include /tmp/files.txt

and in pre just copy/output to those files

%pre
echo "
repo --name ${inst_type} --baseurl=file:///tmp/APP/${inst_type}/packages" > /tmp/repo.txt

cp  /tmp/APP/${inst_type}/${config}/packages.inc
/tmp/files.txt

Regards,
Adrian

Hi,

 

Just wondering if anyone can help me here.

 

I’m writing a modular kickstart. I have a large number of machines to install, but I’m only responsible for the base install, other groups configure their apps etc

 

So, I’ve defined a repo as

 

repo --name ${inst_type} --baseurl=file:///tmp/APP/${inst_type}/packages

 

and an include of a package list as

 

%include /tmp/APP/${inst_type}/${config}/packages.inc

 

 

 

In the %pre section, I source the inst_type and config variables with:

 

cat /tmp/eric_mnt/kickstart/${HOSTNAME}/${HOSTNAME}_installation_param_details | sed 's/^/export /g' > /tmp/params.cfg

source /tmp/params.cfg

 

And that works as I use them in the pre section for other things as well.

 

The problem is that the install just stops, sometime after the pre scripts are run, about when I’d expect it to start installing the base packages, without giving me an error I can understand.

 

But, if I hard code those variables into the %include and repo lines, the build completes.

 

Can anyone tell me if variables are not allowed in either the %include or repo lines?

 

Thanks

 

Mike
