Article unification[edit]

There is a separate article on the kickstart configuration files, that are part of Anaconda and used nowhere else (I think) and even a stub article on a patch for Anaconda. Maybe those should be dropped and the contents integrated here...--Pangean (talk) 13:56, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

I propose that Hackaconda be merged into Anaconda (installer). As User:Pangean said above, Hackaconda is only a patch for Anaconda. I don't believe that it is notable enough to warrant a separate article, and it would not be difficult to merge the text as there has, as of yet, not been a large amount written.

Answer to proposed merger[edit]

Actually the Hackaconda was nothing more then a patch to Anaconda (installer) before RHEL 6.x. This patch was made only because the upstream of Anaconda (installer) in RHEL 5.x was already closed and no patches were accepted anymore. There were no attempts to push those patches to RHEL 6.x upstream because RHEL 6.x had no problems those were solved with Hackaconda. The Hackaconda is a patch for dead branch of Anaconda (installer) which was published separately only because of the reason mentioned above. The Hackaconda is a historical artifact which nobody will miss if it is erased from wikipedia pages.

Okay, thanks! I'm changing it to a redirect. Orthogonal1 (talk) 06:03, 13 November 2014 (UTC)
