Just for the sake of argument, our Amazon EC2 images aren't using
Anaconda for installation, but they're still considered part of
That's why I recently added EC2 support to livemedia-creator. Since I
don't have an EC2 account it is untested -- help would be appreciated.
I agree with the sentiment that Anaconda should be a requirement for
instances where it makes sense to boot from bootable media
(DVD/CD/USB) and install via Anaconda, but in the case of ARM, the
traditional installation method is often "copy an image to an SD (or
micro-SD) card and then boot from that card. Just to make sure I'm
clear, are you insisting that the software tool that puts the image on
the SD card be Anaconda, or are you OK with some other Fedora-approved
tool for doing so?
We should be able to make images using livemedia-creator -- It needs to
be run on the target hardware though, currently there is no cross-arch
support. The last I heard from ARM was that Anaconda wasn't built for
The goal of creating lmc was to use Anaconda's logic for all installs,
including creating system images or live media.. This will increase
reliability and cut down on the number of bugs we see because
livecd-creator really is just a wrapper around a yum chroot install.
