Post Ubuntu18 kickstart installation


I have sucessfully done kickstart installation for CentOS 7 using kickstart-file centos-ks.cfg.

Steps followed :

1. Created kickstart file centos7-ks.cfg file
2. Booted using centos7 iso, pressed ESC and at boot prompt typed -
Code:
boot: linux ks=http://x.x.x.x/pub/centos8-ks.cfg
And my installation was completed successfully.

But when I create create kickstart file for Ubuntu and start installation using Ubuntu iso, and when I give command at boot prompt, it doesn't work

Code:
boot: linux ks=http://x.x.x.x/pub/ubuntu18-ks.cfg
It says linux ... not fount.

I just want to know what is the Ubuntu equivalent for

Code:
boot: linux ks=http://x.x.x.x/pub/xxxxx-ks.cfg

The error message means that the isolinux configuration on the ISO file or DVDROM doesn't include a menupoint named "linux". This should be easy to correct: Find isolinux.cfg on the ISO and see which menupoints it contains.

Any idea which one to use.


I just want to do kickstart installation using cdrom/iso.
Else I will have to create iso, including required files.


Screenshot in below link as well.

No, but help might help, and you could mount the ISO file on the VM host and view isolinux.cfg to find out what these options do.

According to https://askubuntu.com/questions/1036...l-set-language, you can't automate the installation with the Live CD. Try another ISO file.
