setup

  1. Ensure you have a USB stick that is larger than the live image whose contents you can afford to lose (the contents of the stick will be destroyed as a part of the test).
  2. Run the tool:
  • NOTE persistence is no longer offered see below [ 1 ]
Destined to be Primary installer in linux; Windows; Mac
  • Downloads f24 iso's
Use Custom OS for testing .iso's you have already downloaded
iso selection Starts in / ; go to Home/(user)/Downloads to find them (select with double click)
  • Main Screen (note Fedora Spins - Including KDE - are accessed from [ : ] at bottom

  • Fedora Spins [ : ]
NOTE "Checking for new releases" under Custom Image
Ricky Elrod is working on putting the file in place at the location FMW is expecting. It's not there yet, therefore FMW tries to download it again and again.
This is by design.

[ 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)

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 (f26) 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."

  • "If you're using /tmp/lmc you need to make sure you have enough RAM available (assuming it is mounted using tmpfs)"
use /var/lmc if low on memory
  • "Right, if you only have 3.8G then 50% will be assigned to tmpfs and it's likely

you'll run out of ram when using /tmp/ for the resultdir."

warning

12/14/2016
  • There is a problem using LMC this way:

<adamw> satellit: you really *really* shouldn't be running lmc directly on the system with --no-virt anyway <adamw> it's a fundamentally risky thing to do

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
