Comment 3 Daniel Walsh 2014-09-02 23:24:32 UTC
systemd-container should only be used within docker images, it should never be used on bare metal systems.

Comment 4 Colin Walters 2014-09-16 21:19:54 UTC
I'm not aware of any installer changes necessary for this.  The main thing we need to prevent is anaconda somehow seeing systemd-container in the yum repositories used for regular installations.

I think it's in RHEL Extras, so as long as the installation target doesn't include that, Anaconda should be fine.

Comment 5 Colin Walters 2014-09-16 21:20:57 UTC
Oh, but maybe this is about the opposite use case, where someone was hitting issues building a Docker container using ImageFactory (which uses Anaconda)?

Comment 7 Brian Lane 2014-09-18 18:43:46 UTC
There's a bug in --dirinstall that needs to be fixed (I'll attach a patch). With that fix I've tested a minimal kickstart using fakesystemd or systemd-container, and as long as you don't include kickstart commands that trigger calls to systemctl a -anaconda --dirinstall --text --kickstart=... works fine.

Don't include firstboot or services and it will work fine. If there are specific problems, please add them to this bug and I'll take a look at them.
