Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm trying to create a custom Cent installation CD that will install just the RPMs I need and run a script after a reboot to compile some source code for me.
I've been following the How-To here (http://sipx-wiki.calivia.com/index.p...ipX_on_CentOS), and everything was going great until I got to the "Create repodata using createrepo" section. It failed with this:
[root@home QMT]# createrepo -v --baseurl="media://1156364963.862322" -g /QMT/CentOS/base/comps.xml /QMT/CentOS/RPMS/
Error: groupfile /QMT/CentOS/base/comps.xml cannot be found.
And the file is there. The serial for the media is what was found in .discinfo like it suggested.
Has anyone else run into similar issues or can offer some suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
Maybe. I'll need to dig some more and do some more in-depth testing. For the moment I have the install ISO working even though I skipped that step.
Off hand, do you know how to make the kickstart ask for the IP information during installation? I know I can supply it all in the kickstart file itself, or select DHCP, but is there a way to have it ask the user for this info like it does for the root password?
Thanks again for the link.

Well, IIRC mainly it says createrepo doesn't work with full paths and moving it to a subdir should work.

Sorry, can't help you with that.
Thanks. I played with createrepo some more trying different things but decided that it wasn't that high of an issue for me - my install ISO is working, so I won't try and fix it
Thanks again for your help. And from what I can tell, you can either set the network interface as DHCP or static in the kickstart file. Nothing else. There used to be an --option config, but it's been depreciated and no longer functions.
