Kickstart Pool

This page describes a kickstart pool for spin concepts.

Procedure

When a kickstart is approved by the Spin SIG, it is entered into the appropriate branch in the Kickstart Pool . This does not imply inclusion in the official release, nor does it include being mirrored, tracked or seeded by the Fedora Project.

For a given release, the Spin SIG will create a branch that can be maintained for the remainder of the release cycle, so that updates to the kickstart configuration can be applied and released to the general public as a package.

Live Spins

Using Kickstart Snippets (Live Spins)

Like with the kickstart included in livecd-tools now, we may consider using snippets, so that the basic kickstart that builds up:

  • A base for all spins
    • Basic package set
    • Scripts like /etc/init.d/fedora-live, etc
    • Settings such as disabling firstboot, etc
  • Package & Spin Customization
    • per Spin concept
    • includes Spin concept specific scripts (%post)
    • not including Localization packages (see "Language Customization")
  • Language Customization
    • Language, locale, keyboard and timezone
    • Add Localized Packages
