Redhat Anaconda

Anaconda is RedHat's installer thing.

It is possible to regenerate the install info files for a kickstart (or any kind of install that is using a particular image):

echo Generating initial hdlists
/bin/cat /dev/null > $InstallBase/RedHat/base/hdlist
/bin/cat /dev/null > $InstallBase/RedHat/base/hdlist2
/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/genhdlist $InstallBase
echo Generating install order
/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/pkgorder $InstallBase i386 > $InstallBase/rpmorder
echo Regenerating hdlists
/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/genhdlist --withnumbers --fileorder $InstallBase/rpmorder $InstallBase
echo Done

There is embarrassingly little documentation about the inner workings of the Anacoda.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
