https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Common_F24_bugs

[ 1 ] use live-iso-to-disk for persistence

dnf install livecd-tools
livecd-iso-to-disk --format --reset-mbr --overlay-size-mb 2000 --home-size-mb 2000 --delete-home --unencrypted-home Fedora-Workstation-Live-x86_64-24_Beta-1.4.iso /dev/sd(x)
(x) USB must have: fat format, boot flag, label=LIVE
(x) CAUTION use "mount" (in terminal) to get correct name for USB (/dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd etc)

livemedia-creator

  • Examples in f25 root terminal:

Install files

  • livemedia-creator and ksflatten are part of lorax
# dnf install lorax virt-install libvirt-daemon-config-network pykickstart

                                                                                                                                               
  • Must be done first:
You must be in the same fedora version (f25) first. This is so that packages can be installed to livecd without SELinux errors and is relabeled at boot time.

"In --no-virt mode it's calling anaconda
directly so kickstart processing of the %include may work, depending on
the location of the files. But if you're using it in virt mode only the
top level ks gets passed into the vm so ksflatten is required in that
case."

alternately: git clone the repo and not get each piece manually
Kickstarts need to flattened before use:
hit raw tab and save-page-as to a local directory (/home/(user)/Downloads/pagure/)

ksflatten

updated 06/28/2016


ksflatten -v, --config fedora-live-soas.ks -o flat-fedora-live-soas.ks --version F25

note the changes from f24
https://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Fedora_24#livemedia-creator
not in /tmp/lmc as root file system runs out of room.

Make a remix

  • edit the bottom of the flat-fedora-live-soas.ks
that you produce with ksflatten (above)
in this section of the flattened.ks:

%packages

add a program (add name)
- delete a program ( put - in front)
put # in front of listed program to not install it
