The goal is to have some biarch spin(s) easily available for users.  The ultimate goal would be make the big [Download Now!] button at http://fedoraproject.org a biarch spin.  In such case sure the %post section of my spin should be dropped.  Unfortunately I do not expect I will achieve the change of the first/primary download Fedora spin to be biarch.

I have updated the spin according to your advices but I do not want do spend any time discussing the spin before the building script gets accepted.

If the building script gets used for some of the existing spins this is 99% of what I wanted to reach.  In such case I find the associated spin still as a more suitable for the biarch edition but i do not mind much.

Wrt the .ks file I have cleaned up the removals vs. additions of packages, thanks.

I tried the [http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=spin-kickstarts.git;a=blob;f=snippets/autologin-gdm.ks snippet] but it has no effect because '''/etc/rc.d/init.d/fedora-live''' is not executed / does not exist anywhere.  I do not understand why to use (create?) the '''fedora''' user when '''liveuser''' already exists as the unprivileged user.  Also my goal was to skip the login screen while this snippet waits for 60 seconds which would need to be modified to 0.  So I did not use the snippet for my spin.

Revision as of 20:51, 13 March 2011

Initial review 2011-03-13

Thanks for updating the spins page after the meeting this week.

The biggest question for me is: Is this still a spin like this others or is it more about the tool? I think we should solve both questions independently. First wee need the tool, then we can make whatever spin of it.

If you want this to be a spin, please update the kickstart:

  • You are removing quite a lot of stuff, you better use fedora-live-base.ks, fedora-livecd-base.ks or even fedora-live-mini.ks instead of fedora-live-desktop.ks as base
  • Instead of removing stuff individually, include fedora-live-minimization.ks
  • Use the snipplet from the spin-kickstarts-package.

The goal is to have some biarch spin(s) easily available for users. The ultimate goal would be make the big [Download Now!] button at http://fedoraproject.org a biarch spin. In such case sure the %post section of my spin should be dropped. Unfortunately I do not expect I will achieve the change of the first/primary download Fedora spin to be biarch.

I have updated the spin according to your advices but I do not want do spend any time discussing the spin before the building script gets accepted.

If the building script gets used for some of the existing spins this is 99% of what I wanted to reach. In such case I find the associated spin still as a more suitable for the biarch edition but i do not mind much.

Wrt the .ks file I have cleaned up the removals vs. additions of packages, thanks.

I tried the snippet but it has no effect because /etc/rc.d/init.d/fedora-live is not executed / does not exist anywhere. I do not understand why to use (create?) the fedora user when liveuser already exists as the unprivileged user. Also my goal was to skip the login screen while this snippet waits for 60 seconds which would need to be modified to 0. So I did not use the snippet for my spin.
