Summary0007346: Broken installation with kickstart over proxy
DescriptionI have unsuccessfully tried to install virtual centos7 using pxe boot and kickstart over http proxy. It failed to download stage2 image (squashfs.img). It looks as if it completelly ignores proxy configuration in kickstart file. Manually downloading stage2 from dracut emergency shell worked without problem.
Steps To Reproduce1. Prepare kickstart file with url --url="" --proxy=""
2. Use kickstart file for installation
3. Try to install
Additional InformationUsing pxe ramdisk (centos/7.0.1406/os/x86_64/images/pxeboot/initrd.img) and kernel (centos/7.0.1406/os/x86_64/images/pxeboot/vmlinuz). Pxelinux menu attached (default). Sosreport attached (rdsosreport.txt)
Kickstart file attached (ks.cfg).

I've done a little investigation and I believe, that problem is in the ramdisk file /lib/dracut/modules.d/80anaconda/parse-kickstart. Proxy is simply ignored during parsing. Providing patch (patch.txt) which correctly parses proxy setting from kickstart.
TagsNo tags attached.

if you create an updates.img (inst.updates=...) containing the modified /lib/dracut/modules.d/80anaconda/parse-kickstart and /lib/ files, does that work as expected (putting the new files at the same path inside updates.img)?

ref: and

"Note that the placement of files in an image is a little picky. For instance, python modules must be in their proper subdirectory mirroring the layout of /usr/lib/python?.?/site-packages/. "

@tru : I don't know, I'm using PXE install with Foreman. Updating the initrd does work.
