Can I unsilence kickstart step Performing post-installation setup tasks?

sorin asked:

While anaconda kickstart installer runs the “Performing post-installation setup tasks” tasks are not visible on console and their outcome is only saved to ks-post.log file.

I do want to also display it on the console as these steps could take a long time and there is a clear need to see what happens in real time.

How can I do this?

My answer:


I don’t see any obvious way in the docs to log the %post script to console, but if you really need to see the script output while it’s still running during installation, then you might try switching to another virtual console and running tail -f /mnt/sysimage/root/ks-post.log.
