local mirror and kickstart

Post by iwishitwouldwork » 2020/07/25 06:55:50

CentOS 8

I have a running kickstart directory, like so:

Code: Select all

/VOLUMES/www/html/KS/CentOS
The contents are:

Code: Select all

[root@fs CentOS]# ls
AppStream  BaseOS  EFI   images  isolinux  media.repo
I made this, originally, by downloading a dvd image and cracking it open.

I have updated the AppStream and BaseOS directories using commands
like this one:

Code: Select all

DIR=/VOLUMES/www/html/KS/CentOS/
REPO=BaseOS
dnf reposync --repoid=$REPO --delete --arch=x86_64 --download-metadata -p $DIR
I haven't tested it yet, but I expect it will work. Here's my question:
I don't know how/where to get the other files/dirs in my top level directory.
That is, I know I need certain stuff from the EFI et. al. directories.
Yet, after snooping around the public mirror's site, I haven't found where I
can get them. Pulling down the DVD again seems kinda clunky -- is there
a better way?
