Is there anyway I can get the package list off of a live Linux box and put that into a kickstart?
Edit: Sorry...This is on a Fedora box
For the common ones:
Debian/Ubuntu/Mint (for Debian/pkg type distros):
(Incidentally, on Debian/Ubuntu, you use preseed)
For RedHat/CentOS/SuSE/Fedora (RedHat/RPM type distros):
As a side note, if this is a relatively fresh install (no packages added after installation), you can use the ananconda-ks.cfg file and use that as base kickstart, as that contains the list of packages plus other configuration setting that was set and insatlled during the initial setup.
For a shorter list, you can list the package groups with yum:
