No need to patch Anaconda
There is no need to patch anaconda-10.91.14-1 In Fedora Core 5 Test 2.
A patch submitted to the anaconda devs has made it into anaconda-10.91.14-1 which allows Kadischi to be used without patching Anaconda by users, and without the --livecd switch, eliminating the partitioning screens.
This of course only applies to FC5 Test platform testers.
anaconda-10.91.14-1 ------------------- * Fri Feb 03 2006 JeremyKatz <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 10.91.14-1 - Skip more steps in root mode (JasperHartline)
This patch provides functionality by correcting the URL displayed in the usage for kadischi.py, enables mkzftree parallelism if available and allows Kadischi to run under >= FC5tx Anaconda. It also removes the --livecd switch from kadischi.py for now, until more things develop that is what is needed for test platform users.
Without this kadischi-fc5tx.patch , anaconda will fail like this:
*** running anaconda *** Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/sbin/anaconda", line 514, in ? flags.livecd = 1 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/flags.py", line 30, in __setattr__ raise AttributeError, attr AttributeError: livecd *** Fatal error: anaconda returned non zero (256) exit code. Aborting execution. Cleaning up temporary files... Done
Hence, kadischi.py needs to be patched,
# patch -b /usr/local/share/kadischi/kadischi.py /home/KADISCHI/kadischi-fc5tx.patch
In the next meeting JasperHartline will go over other patches: e.g. The mkinitrd patch, linking in the libsepol.so libselinux.so and libdl.so, plus switching /sbin/nash with losetup.
