This test will verify that anaconda can load a kickstart file from a file:// path. This is a typical case for when the kickstart file is located in the initrd or stage#1 environment.

Steps To Reproduce

1. Prepare a valid kickstart file and copy to a on disk location accessible by the stage#1 loader. This is typically copied inside the initrd used for the installation.

1. Boot the system and enter the following at the boot prompt

linux ks=file://path/ks.cfg


linux ks=file:/etc/ks.cfg

Expected Results

1. The ks.cfg is successfully obtained from the specified location

1. The install should proceed in accordance with the directives in the ks.cfg file
