Centos 8 - kickstart file

Post by tomkov » 2020/05/21 20:22:39


I am trying to customize ISO of CentOS 8, so all the essential packages that I need are included during OS installation. All that is specified in the kickstart file. However, after building the ISO with mkisofs and attempting the installation, the boot process stops with an error:

dracut-initqueue[<PID>]: /usr/sbin/fetch-kickstart-disk: line 24: rmdir: command not found.

After couple of days of googling, I have not found any solution for this.

Any idea what could be causing this error?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you.

We don't recommend that anyone rebuilds the iso images. You'd be better off finding a different method. Most of us boot the netinstall iso image and point it to a network hosted repo and kickstart file.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!

CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
