Description

The default kickstart template could do with a refresh so it uses more modern system defaults, e.g.

  • LVM, ext4
  • or autopart for some OS version agnostic defaults?
  • %end markers
  • `services --disabled=`
  • remove --enablemd5 from authconfig (use SHA-2)
And the pxelinux template:
  • deprecated boot options, e.g. ksdevice= in F17/18

History

#1 Updated by Dominic Cleal over 6 years ago

The release number of the EPEL RPM occasionally changes, so instead of installing it with an exact URL, add a repo and install epel-release in %packages, e.g.

repo --name="Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux" --baseurl="http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/fedora-epel/6/x86_64/"

(suggestion from Ewould)

#2 Updated by Brian Rak over 6 years ago

ksdevice is still useful in EL6, it probably shouldn't be removed from that.

#5 Updated by Dominic Cleal about 6 years ago

https://github.com/theforeman/community-templates/pull/13 has been merged, the shipped templates should now be updated to match. Don't migrate existing ones, we should just refresh the defaults under app/views/unattended/ for newly migrated installs.
