#9889 F34 system wide change: Ignore Anaconda kernel boot parameters without inst prefix
Closed: Fixed a month ago by humaton. Opened 6 months ago by jkonecny.

Anaconda allows you to use kernel boot parameters with and without the 'inst.' prefix right now (e.g. inst.repo= / repo=). However, specifying boot parameters without the 'inst' prefix has not been recommended for years and has been deprecated since Fedora 33. We (Anaconda team) would like to make it an official requirement now that users must specify the 'inst.' prefix all the time.

What we need from Release Engineering:
Verification that the Fedora PXE configurations and other places we are using to boot installation images are using the recommended 'inst' prefix for Anaconda. If not then please fix this.

@kevin Do you know how to check this?

Hello everyone,

PR for this is created and we are planning to merge it in two days:

https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/pull/3136

This did indeed break something: oz had some hard coded things it was passing. We patched that and it seems ok otherwise. :)

Great to heard that you faced just one issue.
