Hi to everyone,
I work in a university in France, an actually i plan to realise
automatic installation of ubuntu 9.04.
I am using a kickstart file and scripts to do it, but i don't have the
result i was expecting during the partitioning process.
I have been looking at the forums since a few weeks, without success.
I use the %pre section to calculate the size of the disk and the ram
(this part works fine).
For example on a computer of 40 Go and 512Mb of RAM, i make a file
like this :
clearpart --all --initlabel
part swap --size 512 --asprimary
part / --size grow --maxsize 16384 --fstype ext3 --asprimary
part /home --size grow --fstype ext3
In the kickstart file,i write this at the partitioning section :
But the installation process don't use the partition_table.cfg and in
the log, partman is using autopartitioning with the all disk.
I hope someone on this list could help me to achieve auto-installing.
And sorry for my bad english writing ...
Thanks in advance,
PS : I can send my complete kickstart file if needed
