I'm currently working on a number of kickstart configuration files that I'll be putting on an NFS mount and installing off a custom automated Fedora Core 6 install CD for a number of linux boxes I have at home.
My problem is that I like to install a number of packages from Fedora Extras and the comps.xml package file on the Fedora install CD doesn't include those extra packages (obviously).
I know if I do a regular user interactive install through the GUI that I am able to put in a internet source that hosts (or mirrors) the Fedora Extras, then I'm able to see them. I've analyzed the anaconda-ks.cfg file that sits in the /root home directory after the install and I can't find any real clues how the Fedora installer does all this. Does anyone know what the kickstart configuration options are to do this?
...I'm trying to avoid doing any lengthy %post install scripting to set up `yum`, add the Extra's repository, import the GPG key and then have `yum` install all the packages I need. Not that it's not being done anyway, but to me, %post is for OS setup and configuration.
Does anyone know any kickstart configuration trickery to stream-line hooking into the Fedora Extras in a kickstart configuration file?
