Re: CentOS 8 kickstart "device is too small for new format"

That is certainly an option. I would rather just be able to use the document tools. In this case, I think there is more of a documentation issue. It looks like the "--size" requires some minimum that is not documented. Not sure if it's because of LVM, however. So, "--size=2 --grow" produces the erro...

Re: CentOS 8 kickstart "device is too small for new format"

EDIT: There is at least one bug I'm hitting up against (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1737588) with at least "--reserved-percent" not being used. I thought I had a partial solution, but figured out there is seems to just be an additional anaconda bug... there is something broken with t...

Re: CentOS 8 kickstart "device is too small for new format"

There is a RedHat online tool: https://access.redhat.com/labsinfo/kickstartconfig (login required) that I did try. It has a RHEL 8 option, however, "The tool currently does not support any advanced partitioning." (https://access.redhat.com/documentation/en-us/red_hat_enterprise_linux/8/html/performi...

Re: CentOS 8 kickstart "device is too small for new format"

I forgot to mention that the partition layout does pass the ksvalidator tool inspection process.

I'm leaning toward some kind of bug with anaconda's parser or something... Any suggestions?

Re: kickstart/pxeboot

First installer "!" issues is source definition. I think you should comment the repo and change the url line to: url --url="ftp://10.150.1.7/pub/centos8-DVD/1905/" Second "!" for the screen shot is software selection issue. At the very least the "Development Tools" is just "development" and don't th...

Re: kickstart/pxeboot

That message screen looks more like something is not being liked in the kc.cfg file you have. I'm having a filesystem kickstart creation issue that puts leaves me in the GUI setup screen when it's not working. Looks like the non-gui version version of some ks.cfg file issue, maybe. Post the kc.cfg i...

CentOS 8 kickstart "device is too small for new format"

Disk partition issue I can't figure out what's wrong in CentOS 8. A fully functional CentOS 7 disk/partition creation section from kickstart file fails. I can *set* sizes on a target system, but if I use some combo of --percent and/or --grow I get an error, "device is too small for new format". Orde...

Re: Installation of new kernel on CentOS server

Just for the record, the current kernel-lt is too OLD for usage on recent systems... You will often be better off using the stock kernel or just bite the bullet and go kernel-ml. I have run into this exact situation before. I can say, however, that the kernel-ml is WAYYYY faster in disk I/O! I was t...

Re: Virtualbox with own IP-Address

Yes, this is easily done. The key terms are "virtualbox bridged network setup". One helpful looking document to give you a good understanding may be:
