Help in ANACONDA-ks.cfg

i have automated installation of my proprietory linux.. using PXE. it all goes well. but after complete installation, while using the admin interface.. i am facing display problems.

is it due to package dependencies.?
or i have to write post script in anaconda-ks.cfg file???

You have to have an X Windowing system running on the console, usually on DISPLAY=:0.0, aka port 6000 tcp, or remote system (export DISPLAY=remote_host_or_IP:0.0 ), to have X service.

You have not told us enough information to even begin to give you an accurate reply. Exactly what display problems are you facing?

ya.. i have somewhat figured out the problem...

i thnk the problem lies in the post script...
through the kichstart file, postscript runs by calling the... /sbin/e-smith/signal-event post install..
nw the e-smith directory manages the rebootafter installtion and licencing part..

i want to do this from the anaconda-ks.cfg.. in the post script section


can u tell me the way to initate the post script to use this e-smith???

also for your information.. e-smith directory contains the FIRSTINSTALL, and other console options.
