XIV. 1. Adding Custom Screens to Anaconda
Patrick Devine posted on the anaconda-devel mailing list an example of adding custom screens to Anaconda. He used a new screen that asks for a floppy. His technique was used to create a new window class. The window class prompts for a floppy disk. Patrick called this change something like "floppycopy_[text|gui] .py" Patrick only provided a text mode example, but for the concept would be similar for a GUI screen.
This screen copies the /tmp/ks.cfg file to the floppy. You will need to change /tmp/ks.cfg to something meaningful. Alexander Rau enhanced the patches to include the use of Back/Cancel buttons. The patches also include GUI screens as well. Alexander used code from the bootdisk files along with Patrick's suggestions as well.
