Over the past week or so, I've become familiar with the Kadischi portion
of Kadischi (as opposed to anaconda) and put together squashfs support.
Unfortunately, I've been depending on cvs diff to generate a patch and
the cvs server is down right now. Does anyone have a pristine tree I
can diff against? If not, I'll tar up my tree later tonight and stick
them somewhere for others to look at.
The drawback of that is I had to make a few unrelated changes because
I'm creating a minimal install and certain pieces of kadischi make
assumptions of what software is installed in the image.
A few seem to be interested in getting Kadischi-like stuff fused with
What we are looking from my point of view is this:
Just enabling a checkbox for building a LiveCD, which would require an
existing Ext2/3 partition to write to.
In this LiveCD payload must include Anaconda which can also from the CD
install to the HDD.
This makes little sense in my opinion, since rootpath doesn't do HDD
e.g. to even allow partitioning of a drive, to get a LiveCD written.
Can someone describe some ideas they may have for doing this?
Is there some clarity we can establish here?
Since there's been no replies -- here's a patch to make all python files
consistently use 4 spaces and use #!/usr/bin/python -tt
I've used it to create some squashfs style images but I haven't checked
every single code path to be sure nothing is broken.
Patch was 42K so I gzipped it.
There was some discussion in the mail threads yesterday
that we go ahead and do away with copying /root files with rsync in
I looked at it briefly and what I think can be done is not empty /root
thus being able to drop the rsync'ing code out of it also in
The RAMfs will contain the files from /root in any case because they are
bound from /livecd/tmpfs to /root.
Along with this change, I am curious if we should also "bury" the
such as /livecd /initrd and /rr_moved e.g. make these hidden rather than
having what would be
a very obtuse looking root dir.. simply moving these to /.initrd
/.livecd and /.rr_moved for instance.
Does anybody know what should I do in order to boot kadischi live-cd
from USB external CDROM? I have a motherboard with a BIOS which can
boot from the USB , and
indeed it starts booting the USB CD and says an error about
"usb-storage"; I assume I should add loading this driver (and more)
to initrd , but how exactly ? any idea?
Some work has been done recently with Kadischi and it is still
getting a bit of massaging.. however I wanted to see what ideas we
could come up with in kickstarting a rough UI for Kadischi.
What would be the most plausible for Kadischi, any ideas?
Python + GTK?
What are some of your ideas?
My question, which I think should be answered in the docs (it isn't is it?) is
What if any requirements does the fedora project put on someone distributing an
iso generated with kadischi?
Does the full spectrum of removing the artwork/trademarks that is associated
with creating a fedora derivative distribution apply?
If so, I suggest adding a post install script which does this for the user
automatically (instead of disabling their firewall ;), or adding big FAT
warnings telling people that they cannot redistribute kadsichi output.

Could you fix whatever is broken on the Kadischi/Development page.
I was trying to reorder the TOC entries for organization
rather than how they were which, really organization should be done
anytime making a wiki page.
In any caswe, could you fix it. I looked at it for about 3 minutes and
do not see the error in the page.
The other day I edited a page and it was thrown off by a typo already in
I found that luckily, I however can't on the Developers page.
