Hey again folks,

How can I save answers to questions in %pre, for use in %post?

I'm assuming (though have not yet tried) that variables won't live that long.

Could I save them off to /tmp in a file, and retrieve them?


echo "VARNAME=$VARNAME" >> /tmp/varfile

grep ^VARNAME= /tmp/varile

Or some such ...
