Why does kickstart bootloader options not being honoured ?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Using kickstart to install a host with the following config:
bootloader --location=mbr --append="rhgb quiet crashkernel=512M-2G:64M,2G-:128M@32M"
  • crashkernel=512M-2G:64M,2G-:128M@32M option is needed as kdump on hosts with less than 2GB of RAM.
  • The host is being installed with crashkernel=auto and not crashkernel=512M-2G:64M,2G-:128M@32M
