- Previously, when using the volgroup command with the --useexisting option without specifying the physical volume (PV), the system installation failed with the following message:volgroup must be given a list of partitionsWith this update, the library scripts have been set to check if the PVs are defined prior to the installation. In case of undefined PVs, the scripts raise a warning message to notify the user.
- Previously, the kickstart command options marked as deprecated were not allowed to carry a value. Consequently, a kickstart file containing a deprecated command option with an assigned value, such as --videoram="value", could not be validated. The ksvalidator tool terminated with the following message:--videoram option does not take a valueWith this update, the deprecated options have been allowed to take values and the error no longer occurs in the aforementioned scenario.
- The "autopart", "logvol", "part", and "raid" commands can now take the --cipher option to specify the encryption algorithm to be used for encrypting devices. If this option is not provided, the installer will use the default algorithm.
