Unhappy Accidently deleted anaconda-ks.cfg


Hi,

I had deleted my anaconda-ks.cfg file from the /root partition, accidently. I need to re-create it. I had deleted it in my CVS server. So I have to re-create it as soon as possible. If anybody knows how to re-create it...please help me out. I am using FC-5. I had rebooted the server and have not found any errors. Still, I need to re-create the anaconda-ks.cfg file for my kickstart configurations.

Hope some of you help me out on this.

Regards,
Deepan.

I believed we need the anaconda-ks.cfg file to create a kickstart file. That is the reason I was trying to rcover the deleted file. Ok, If we do not need the anaconda-ks.cfg file for kickstart, then for what we need that file? Could you please tell me the use of the file and problems which I will face in future, If I wont have that file? B'caz somebody told me that an important file of the linux files system.

Regards,
Deepan.

You dont need any file to create a kickstart file.
The command

system-config-kickstart

can be used to create the kickstart files you need.


Also the file you deleted is just a log file that has the status of installation.Something like a install.log you will find in the /tmp directory.

The file will be useful for one thing : To see what setting were used for the OS install but that can be determined using other ways.

So no probs in future
[Maybe the file is used in OS upgrade,but am not very sure of that.]

Hi Zulfi,

Thanks a lot for your help. I was worried about that file. As you said, I too had a thought that the anaconda file may be needed in future for the OS upgrade or it may be need for the hardware upgrade. I will check it out when I am free from my works. And If possible I'll let u know.

Thanks a lot.

Cheers,
Deepan.
