So I've been working on adding serial console support to ovirt (http://ovirt.org
We use livecd-tools to create our images. I wanted to add the serial console to the
kernel command line but found there was no real easy way to do this (I'm using
I see in the kickstart documentation that a --append flag is available to the
'bootloader' config option. However, it is ignored by livecd-creator. I was
poking through the code and there's an 'extras' variable in the kernel command
building, so the idea is there, it's just not hooked up.
Anyway, I was poking around in there so I could do up a patch, unless there's someone
already mucking about or wants to fix that up. Let me know. I'm hoping this would be
considered a bug and would go out in a point release?
I am seeing the append flag being used by the appliance creator. Any
reason to (1) not use appliance creator or (2) ignore this in livecd tools?
