07:55 schurigcan I create symlinks via /srv/fai/config/files?  Or, in other words, can fcopy copy symlinks as-is, e.g. that the created file is a symlink as well?
07:59 MrfaiAFAIK this is not possible. It uses the File::Copy module. Have a look if this can create links.

08:43 stockholmMrfai: how do i NOT format a partition, but partition it only?
08:43 ozstockholm: use preserve
08:43 ozit's described in the FAI Guide
08:44 stockholmhm, the partition table will be created anyway if i do that?
08:45 stockholmoz: i know about preserve and the fai guide
08:45 ozno
08:46 stockholmoz: hu? "no" what? it wont create a partition table?
08:46 stockholmoz: this has to work on virgin disks and used ones
08:47 Mrfaiyes the partition table will be created, but it will use the same values for partition, that should be preserved.
08:47 ozit does...what is your problem?
Action: oz don't get it
08:48 stockholmoz: i do LVM, and currently the HD gets formatted twice, which for large hard disks takes long
08:49 stockholmit would be nice if it could only take half as long
08:49 stockholmas the logical volume gets formatted later on, anyway

15:18 Paracyberhello, i just need an information about fai, anybody has already tried to install an RHEL4 with ?
15:23 Paracyberi need to install 18 lames for a blade, with different configuration but all under RHEL4, however for the "images servers", i am free to install a debian, that's the goal of my question ;)
15:27 Mrfairpm package format is supported. But I'm not sure if anybody did RHEL. AFAIK Henning did some Cent OS isntallations. So it should work, but maybe not out of the box.
15:38 ParacyberThanks Mrfai, i believe, for saving time, i will use kickstart, which seems to be more appropriate for my case

16:47 dayidHello,
16:49 dayidI ran acros FAI on web when trying to find a more efficient manner of working with a kickstart system @ my NOC. However, we are locked in on using CentOS as per customer expectations and our support-techs. Does anyone present know if there's a similar project that would work for yum/rpm based distributions, or if someone has so modified this one to work for such?
16:50 dayidEssentially, our kickstart system I need/want to be more automated (as it doesn't detect any hardware, we're stuck saying "ok, do this one for /dev/sda instead of /dev/hda - and for this machine use x86 vs. 64) - and hopefully through such, not have as many things to change each time we update/include something different (currenly some 10 different variations of the install)
16:50 dayidand I'm too tired of having people say "just use DD" as we go from 40GB disks for small dedicated boxes to 2TB setups for shared boxes
