Issue with kickstart

Post by bhundven » 2019/09/24 17:37:52

I'm getting an error with a `text --non-interactive` kickstart on centos 8.

The error is

Code: Select all

dracut-initqueue[951]: mount: /run/install/repo: WARNING: device write-protected, mounted read-only.
This is based on a converted centos 7 kickstart, but I have taken into consideration the changes defined here:

That's not an error message. It's just telling you that the iso image has been mounted, readonly since that's how isos are.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

Yea, I just learned about lack of floppy module support, which is the problem. So I'm trying to figure out now how to host the kickstart somewhere.
