"<pwhalen> satellit, seeing the same issue. it looks like the initramfs is host-only for some reason. Looking at the kickstart I think I see why. <pwhalen> we remove dracut-config-generic in post, but it looks like we also rebuild the initramfs for sugar as well..seems like the rebuild happens after we remove dracut-config-generic.. so host only :(

<pwhalen> satellit, broken in rawhide as well - 15M May 14 15:59 initramfs-5.1.0-1.fc31.armv7hl.img <pwhalen> should be around 40-50M" "<pwhalen> satellit, if you replace the initramfs with this one - https://fedorapeople.org/~pwhalen/soas/initramfs-5.0.9-301.fc30.armv7hl.img <pwhalen> it will boot. Thanks for bringing this to our attention."

  • may 15:

<pwhalen> satellit, mount the sd, the look for the partition labelled boot

<pwhalen> might be easiest to then right click and open in terminal, then 'su -c "wget https://fedorapeople.org/~pwhalen/soas/initramfs-5.0.9-301.fc30.armv7hl.img"' <pwhalen> then 'sudo mv initramfs-5.0.9-301.fc30.armv7hl.img.1 initramfs-5.0.9-301.fc30.armv7hl.img' <pwhalen> should od it <pwhalen> or do it even <pwhalen> and we'll get it fixed for f31. As it is it will only work in qemu.

  • fix applied

  • in terminal:
sudo dnf groupinstall sugar-desktop-environment
sudo dnf install sugar-runner
    • run each command separately

How to Clear ./sugar

  • When making a new VM, to clear the Sugar Journal of old entries and to avoid identity conflicts among copies of the VM, enter the command rm -rf ~/.sugar in the Terminal activity. Then shutdown the VM. This will clear all Learner information on the VM and let you start with a fresh install. Skipping this will result in collisions in the Neighborhood view of the Jabber network between separate copies of the appliance. Verify the presence of the .sugar directory by entering ls -a in Terminal.
  • When cloning a customized VM, in order to keep the Journal and installed .xo Activities, use rm -rf ~/.sugar/default/owner.key* in the Sugar Terminal, and then shutdown the VM. enter in root terminal:su (password) shutdown -h now This leaves the Journal entries and removes only the previous Learner's identity key files.
  • To clear the Sugar Journal:rm -rf ~/.sugar/default/datastore This may be needed if the Journal becomes clogged with too many entries. USE WITH CAUTION'

"Why not just use livecd-creator? It is still maintained by the community (mainly Neal Gompa, see https://github.com/livecd-tools/livecd-tools ) and it supports this IMHO essential feature. And livecd-creator typically accepts kickstarts written for livemedia-creator with few to no changes, unlike the other way round. Kevin Kofler"
