View Full Version : [lubuntu] kickstart to install VM ?

August 23rd, 2014, 05:27 PM

I want to automate local install of my lubuntu and try the ubuntu adaptation of kickstart which I used to use on Redhat side.
I create a ks.cfg from a 12.04 install (14.04 one is broken https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/system-config-kickstart/+bug/1260107)

I launched a VM from iso (desktop-amd64+mac) file and with usb key adding to other parameters (F6) ks=hd:sdb1:/ks-ubuntu.cfg
but installation starts interactively and with gui whereas I asked for text.
I can check than my usb key is sdb1 but I can't explain why it's ignore.

is it functional? or not like this post seems to imply

Booting with debug nosplash, doesn't give any indication on usage of kickstart

I've never used KS.
