Kick Start %post problem


i configured a kick start file to install a RHEL 6.5 then copy a tar.gz file and extract it for me in /mnt/sysimage/root for me.

the first problem is that the file is being coped with different name like ? or with no name just white space.
the second problem that i use
Code:
tar -xzvf *.tar.gz
command but it can't be executed.

can anyone tell me what is the problem

this is the %post section from the ks.cfg file:

Code:
%post 

cp -f /mnt/source/myfile.tar.gz /root
tar -xzvf /mnt/source/myfile.tar.gz

%end

Use [ CODE ] tags to display your code correctly. The Bright Green text with a blue background is literally invisible.

The way you are explaining it, this is what you would want I would think.

Code:
%post 

cp -f /mnt/source/myfile.tar.gz /root
tar -xf /root/myfile.tar.gz -C /root

%end
