Description Harald Hoyer 2013-10-08 11:09:11 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1009710 +++

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.
