Unhappy Control of partition sizes using kickstart in interactive and text mode


Hi All

Hope you can help me

Im not allowed to use the RHEL install GUI as part of installs - need to be done via text mode

I allow anaconda to do all of the partition,vg and lv creation so I have no way of controlling my partitioning at this point - which is what I need

If I specify all the partitioning in the ks file I gain control of the partitioning - but I lose the interactive install (even though its specified in the ks file )

So my question is how can I end up with the following layout and retain the ability to choose the device to install on interactively


Cheers !

part /boot --fstype=ext4 --size=500
part swap --recommended
partition pv.2 --size=1 --grow

volgroup vg_test pv.2
logvol / --fstype ext4 --name=lv_root --vgname=vg_test --size=70000
logvol /home --fstype ext4 --name=lv_home --vgname=vg_test --size=10000
logvol /var --fstype ext4 --name=lv_var --vgname=vg_test --size=120000
logvol /opt --fstype ext4 --name=lv_opt --vgname=vg_test --size=30000
logvol /tmp --fstype ext4 --name=lv_tmp --vgname=vg_test --size=10000
logvol /usr --fstype ext4 --name=lv_usr --vgname=vg_test --size=20000

Well i think it won't be possible, becasue Kickstart in itself is non-attended and non-interactive installation. So if you want to do interactive install use text if you want non-attended use kickstart.
