This is interesting news for me. I'm a long time user (in an employed
capacity) of livecd-tools and it sort of felt like the project was circling
the drain. I've recently started playing with livemedia-creator and have
found some aspects that look wonderfully powerful (e.g., the lorax
templates) but have also found it frustrating to use when it doesn't like my
kickstart. I'm past that frustration (for now), but have hit another bump.
To make the spins from lm-c into what I need, I must modify the lorax
templates and since our spins are done in our Koji there doesn't yet appear
to be anyway to achieve that.
In order to use alternative templates, the livemedia-creator command
must have an additional parameter passed. Koji currently doesn't
support this facility, which makes it difficult to use when you need
to support custom layouts. If you'd like this capability, file a bug
against koji in bugzilla for it.
So I'm at a crossroad of enhancing Koji to support custom lorax
to maybe hold out for this breath of life in livecd-tools. Are you planning
to get this work into the livecd-tools in the standard Fedora repos? What
about Koji support? Would this work as is or will that require further
Kevin has already submitted a request to merge our work into the
canonical livecd-tools repository. Once merged, we hope that
upstream will push a new release to supported releases with the new
code. The work we did shouldn't affect Koji support any, though if you
run Koji on something other than Fedora, you'll need to have the
latest DNF 1.1 version available on the system running Koji. With the
release of RHEL 7.3 and EPEL7 subsequently bumping up to it, the
version of DNF for EL7 can be bumped to the latest 1.1 release. Please
request that in bugzilla, if you want it.
I'm currently not providing EL7 packages because of the lack of DNF
1.1. With no CentOS 7.3 available yet, I cannot produce packages that
would be installable by the vast majority of people.
I'm just trying to gauge where to focus my efforts project-wise.
I can contribute something here.
I would encourage you to try out our new livecd-tools and see how it
performs for your needs. Contributions are welcome as well. If
upstream doesn't pull it in, the code will be maintained on Kevin's
