I am trying to install a Centos 5.5 xen domU using this method: http://wiki.centos.org/HowTos/Xen/InstallingCentOSDomU
It suggests a kickstart config file served by the local apache. I managed to install it on a physical machine , but when I am trying the installation on a virtualbox instance (dom0 on latest virtualbox) anaconda exits with the following errors:
Running anaconda, the CentOS system installer - please wait... Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 733, in ? vncksdata = setVNCFromKickstart(opts) File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 277, in setVNCFromKickstart ksparser.readKickstart(opts.ksfile) File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pykickstart/parser.py", line 1209, in readKickstart self.handleCommand(lineno, args) File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/pykickstart/parser.py", line 1069, in handleCommand raise KickstartParseError, formatErrorMsg(lineno, msg=_("Unknown command: %s" % cmd)) pykickstart.parser.KickstartParseError: The following problem occurred on line 1 of the kickstart file: Unknown command: <!DOCTYPE install exited abnormally [1/1]
an interactive Installation works and I managed to get a funcional xen vm, the kickstart file is downloable via links, I have Selinux disabled. I am pretty sure of the kickstart file syntax, has anyone any hint?
