NAME
       ksvalidator -- verify the syntax of a kickstart file

SYNOPSIS
       ksvalidator  [-e  |  --firsterror]   [-i | --followincludes]  [-l | --listversions]  [-v |
       --version VERSION]  INFILE

DESCRIPTION
       ksvalidator is a program that takes an input kickstart file and attempts to verify that it
       is  syntactically  correct.   This includes checking basics like proper quoting and making
       sure required options have values, and more advanced checks like verifying the  file  does
       not include deprecated or removed kickstart commands.  Mutually exclusive options can also
       be caught, as can certain classes of partitioning errors (like using the same device  name
       multiple times).

       ksvalidator  does  have	its  limitations.   It cannot run validate the syntax of %pre and
       %post scripts, nor does it attempt to run them.	It cannot check that the  %packages  sec-
       tion  is  valid.   Most importantly, it cannot guarantee that an input kickstart file will
       install properly, because it does not understand the complexities of partitioning and what
       potentially already exists on disk.

EXIT STATUS
       ksvalidator  returns  0	on  success,  and 1 if INFILE does not exist or there is an error
       parsing the kickstart file.

OPTIONS
       -e, --firsterror
		 Stop on the first warning or error.  By default,  ksvalidator	will  attempt  to
		 process the entire file, potentially raising multiple errors.

       -i, --followincludes
		 Process  included  files  in  the  input  file when they are seen, like anaconda
		 would.  If the included file does not exist (this can happen for  a  variety  of
		 reasons,  but	the  most  common  being a %pre script that generates an included
		 file) and this option is given,  an  error  will  be  generated  and  processing
		 halted.

       -l, --listversions
		 List  all versions of kickstart syntax supported by ksvalidator.  This is useful
		 for determining what values can be fed back in on a second run.

       -v, --version VERSION
		 Use this version of kickstart syntax when processing the file, or the latest  if
		 no version is given.
