CentOS kickstart installation with nodefaults
I am trying to make a customized installer for CentOS. I have modified the kickstart file to include the package groups that I want. The Fedora documentation
says that you can add the --nodefaults option to only install the packages that are mandatory, and not install the defaults package. According to the CentOS documentation
, there is not an option for --nodefaults. So is there no way to only get the mandatory packages for the package groups other than editing the comps.xml and changing all the defaults to optional?
If I add the --nodefaults to the kickstart I get an error during installation saying that the package group 'development-libs --nodefaults' cannot be found.
