Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1009710
livemedia-creator need a device pointing to the original live image
Last modified: 2014-06-17 23:56:16 EDT
This is similar to the reason for adding the /run/initramfs/live-baseloop symlink -- access to the original live image without overlays.
livemedia-creator does not create a osmin.img, so there is no mountable device for it to use when rsyncing the live image to the target. It needs a device that points to the original live image without overlays.
Note that lmc won't be creating osmin.img, since really isn't needed any longer. Its purpose was to provide a minimal image that could be dd'd to the target. Now that we use rsync this is no longer necessary.
The included patch adds a /dev/mapper/live-base device that Anaconda can use whether or not there is an osmin present.
This change should also go into F20 and rawhide.

patch to add /dev/mapper/live-base
Patch from comment 1 is present in dracut-033-150.el7.
Setting Verified: SanityOnly
/dev/mapper/live-base exists when booting live media created by lorax-19.6.26-1.el7. The live medium contains dracut-033-150.el7. Installation from the medium using liveinst (anaconda-19.31.70-1.el7) is successful.
Moving to VERIFIED.
