    respond.xml error durning kickstart install


    I am trying to install Fedora via CD and using a kickstart file to automate the install since the machines in question will be used for class experiments.

    However when the installer moves to package install I get a respond.xml error. Not sure what would cause this problem.

    Note: this is on a non networked computer so the installation will be via cd.

    via the kickstart documentation I placed the ks.cfg file at the root of the cd iso and the /isolinux folder. Not sure what went wrong.

    Thanks

    Did you tell the Fedora installer where to find the kickstart file? For example, i have something like this in my custom Fedora DVD, in the isolinux/isolinux.cfg file:
    Code:
      append initrd=initrd.img ks=cdrom:/F10-custom.ks
    You could also just pass that on the command line, at boot time, instead of burning a new CD/DVD just to test.
