Variables in kickstart files

metaylor Posts: 17

I am using the liveCD-creator with fedora-livecd-base.ks and fedora-livecd-desktop.ks files to create a image. There are two variables, /$LIVE_ROOT and /$INSTALL_ROOT used in these files. I have not been able to determine the value of these.

Where/how are these variables assigned values?

    They are environment variables. You set them to suit in the .bash_profile in your user directory (assuming your are running the Bourne Again Shell, aka bash).

    Thanks for the reply.

    I am using bash shell and these have not been assigned in my .bash_profile.

    So can you tell me what values should be assigned or, what values are usually assigned to these?
