Could somebody point to kicstart HOWTO specific for CentOS 7?
On CentOS 7 I somehow am always given human intervention questions about drive which defeats unattended ks install.
I’m doing kickstart installations for quite some time, normally I was just installing system when new release comes, and am basing kickstart file on anaconda-ks.cfg – with some adoptions from my kickstart configuration for previous system release. Never had a need to re-learn a set of trivial things I use (as far back as I remember: CentOS 6, 5, … Fedora 5, RH 9,
8, 7…). Now it turns out to be time to re-learn the thing. At least one snag I hit consistently with CentOS 7 kickstart is: it drops me into human decision as far as wiping hard drive and creating custom (or default probably as well) partitioning scheme is concerned. Most likely it is me who needs to learn new trick (like “tricking smart macintosh into actually doing what you want done”) as it looks like safety defeats my unattended kickstart installation (like on Windows: “Do you really – really want to do this?”)
– if that was rant that is…
Thanks a lot for your advises!
