Can someone please send /root/anaconda-ks.cfg from a Silverblue installation?

I’m a blind screen reader user trying to perform a Silverblue installation independently. Unfortunately it doesn’t ship an accessible installer as Workstation does, and I’ve failed to get the side-by-side installation method working.

Would anyone mind sending me the /root/anaconda-ks.cfg file from their successful installation? I know it will need tweaks to work for me, but I don’t know how to for instance configure the partitioning scheme in Kickstart to work with Silverblue/Ostree. So being able to start with a working file would be very helpful.

Also, looking at my KS configuration from my current workstation installation, I see references to /dev/sda and the like. Will the installation set things up such that my media can boot regardless of how it is plugged in? I’m planning on buying an external SSD enclosure and bootstrapping the installation from a working system if possible, because it’s hard to work with an inaccessible system. So I’d like too boot the system up from an enclosure-based installation before installing the HD directly, and want to make sure my installation works that way. If this suggests a non-Anaconda-based installation method that I can bootstrap from a working Fedora installation onto a connected external drive, then I’m fine with that too. I’ve used Linux since Slackware 96, so can probably handle any nonstandard installation mechanism you throw my way if it can be done from a booted, talking system. :slight_smile:

Thanks.

Here’s what mine looks like…which looks like I originally installed F26…man, time flies!

YMMV…I suspect a newer install may have some changes to this file that are important.

I did an install of F30 in a VM with the default settings, just for grins:
