vector and kickstart
« on: November 18, 2013, 05:27:10 am »

I want to use kickstart to install linux and found slackware does support it, but was not sure if the vector version breaks it or not. Has anyone tried this ?

Are you referring to this...

Can't say I've tried it or read anything about the community trying to support it.

Yes thats what I was referring to. is there any method of doing an automatic install of vector over the network ?  perhaps that would have been the better question to start with. I opened with kickstart because i have it working with fedora and centos already and would like to auto install vector if possible.

That seems to be a red hat (and RH-like) thing, that's why it works with fedora and centos.  Vector is just too different from those types of OS's, so no... it will most likely never work with vector.

Vector does not yet offer a network install, but it does offer an 'Automatic' install mode from CD or USB on the 7.1 (beta at this point) series.
