Getting closer :-) With the following ks I get a 208MB iso that
into anaconda. Anaconda, however, says "The Fedora disk was not found
in any of your CDROM drives. Please insert the Fedora disk and press
OK to retry."
What does anaconda look for?
After a long tour of the latest anaconda sources from git, and reading
how cdinstall.c setupCdrom() - seems to trawl the /images/ directory
looking for stage2.img , I find that the /images directory is missing.
Pungi/anaconda had bailed out on me due to unresolved dependencies,
duly noted in the log/$arch.log file, so I was using a broken,
incomplete img. Commenting out the lines that blocked cairo,X.org
gnome from getting into the build gets me a working installer CD that
So the minimal F9 I can get without starting to splice packages is
471MB, with the following ks:
What approach should I take to get a headless system without breaking
anaconda? This task has no use for X, cairo or gnome :-)
For example. anaconda and anaconda-runtime pull in
- rhpxl, cairo, gtk2, zenity, xorg-x11-font-utils - useful for
anaconda's graphical installer
- desktop-file-utils -- why?
- gnome-python2-gtkhtml2 -- why?
About 1/3 or more of the 1st install CD seems to go to Anaconda's
graphics lust :-)
