Thanks Manuel, I'm sure this will be of help to many folks!!
One suggestion -- when I deployed the ks-minimalC6.cfg, there were still
some -firmware packages that got installed and were not removed by the
kickstart process. I noticed that you explicitly remove various firmware
packages by name with the '-' notation. Another approach would be to
remove them all programmatically in a %post section, like this:
rpm -e $(rpm -qa | grep -i \\-firmware | grep -v kernel-firmware)
That way, you don't have to specify each one by hand, and have to keep
track of them if a new one shows up in a future release. It also makes
the kickstart file smaller. It's unlikely that an RPM that matches
"-firmware" is going to be relevant to a VM, so it seems like a fairly
safe approach. Just a suggestion.
