comment How do I create encrypted partitions with kickstart in Debian or Ubuntu
Probably going with preseeding completely, since I have working files lying around. As an aside you need the alternate install CD in case you want to use full disk encryption.

comment How do I create encrypted partitions with kickstart in Debian or Ubuntu
Yeah I thought about that. I think I am going with preseeding since it doesn't seem like there is a solution. If you like to put your comments in an answer I can use that as the accepted one.

comment Prevent reboot after yum update
Ok got it figured out. Even though I disabled and even removed the cron job the package containing the scripts and cronjob entry was updated as well, installing the disabled or removed cronjob and thus activating it again. The conjob was then run after a little while causing the reboot. Will now change that damn script.

In this update many packages get upgraded, it's a large upgrade, about 3 or so minor versions (rh6). How would I find out which package would trigger a reboot? I suspect the kernel package though.

No it's not installed on our systems by default neither on the systems I am using to test.

Yes I agree it sounds not like a yum "feature" and it could explain why I can't find any information about it. But I think I read that an rpm package can trigger a reboot, maybe one of our custom packages does it. Any standard redhat packages wouldn't do that I would think?

No cronjobs which would cause this behaviour, unfortunately. I checked that as one of the first suspects.

When I disable the script and run "yum update" by hand it will still reboot after a few minutes.
