Not really, the resulting iso might be to large in which case you need to
drop some packages, or you might run out of "disk" space, in which case
you need to change the size of the / fs in the .ks file.
Yes it was, but just barely and checking on the smallest of the possible
12cm DVD maximum sizes suggests that I can make the filesystem enough
larger for it to fit. I am testing 8800 now. Previously it was 8000.
And it looks like the max is 4700000000/1024/512 = 8964.
I'll see if the build has worked shortly, but won't be able to test the
resulting iso until tonight.
If you're planning on doing this anyways it would be great if you
perhaps become the maintainer of an official Fedora Games spin?
We'll see. In principle I am willing to do it, but I want to make sure
I am qualified. If I actually get it to work, I'll ask about details.
I have access to i386 and x86_64 systems for doing builds. If we need
both. Though I think for a livedvd i386 is probably good enough for the
PC world. I don't have access to other architectures.
I already noticed the kickstart file still refers to starfighter which
seems to have been dropped. I'll file a bug on that after I double
We would really like to see such a spin, but are short on manpower to
realize it. (even though it should not be too much work).
Yeah, I saw the notes about that, but what worried me wasn't that I didn't
fully grok what they were talking about. If it was just that it needed
about 4.1 GB instead of 4GB, then I'm probably OK, because I am seeing
and attempting to fix that.
