build works: 06/20/2016 tg
bash: ksflatten: command not found...
Install package 'pykickstart' to provide command 'ksflatten'? [N/y] y

  • Link:
<dgilmore> satellit: I suggest that you tell people to 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/)
  • switch root terminal to the local directory with the kickstart files (/home/(user)/Downloads/pagure/)
ksflatten -v, --config fedora-live-soas.ks -o flat-fedora-live-soas.ks --version F23
  • NOTE the following command does NOT work in f23 "only url and nfs install methods are supported"
this should be fixed later 06/20/2016
livemedia-creator --ks /home/(user)/Downloads/pagure/flat-fedora-live-soas.ks  --logfile /tmp/lmc-logs/livemedia-out.log --no-virt --resultdir /tmp/lmc --project Fedora-soas-Live --make-iso --volid Fedora-SoaS-flat-live --iso-only --iso-name Fedora-SoaS-flat-live.iso --releasever 23 --title Fedora-SoaS-flat-live --macboot


tested in Thinkpad T-400 with f23 installed
dnf install livecd-tools
livecd-creator \
--config=/home/(user)/Downloads/pagure/flat-fedora-live-soas.ks \
--fslabel=Soas-f23-Remix --cache=/var/cache/live --verbose

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:


add a program (add name)
- delete a program ( put - in front)
put # in front of listed program to not install it
  • See this page for more details on remixes
