The kickstart entry, as defined, should define a partition of max size
'cos you only have one --grow value
part / --fstype=ext4 --asprimary --grow --size=1
In my tests the partition always fills the disk allocated to it, so there's
no need to resize after install.
# fdisk -l
Disk /dev/vda: 4294 MB, 4294967296 bytes
16 heads, 63 sectors/track, 8322 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008 * 512 = 516096 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x000666f1
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/vda1 * 3 206 102400 83 Linux
Partition 1 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/vda2 206 1246 524288 82 Linux swap / Solaris
Partition 2 does not end on cylinder boundary.
/dev/vda3 1246 8323 3566592 83 Linux
Partition 3 does not end on cylinder boundary.
Under what circumstances is a resize needed?
