atomic devmode - no boot menu in f26AH
Last modified: 2017-06-07 12:36:51 EDT
No atomic devmode boot menu entry in FAH:
[root@localhost ~]# rpm-ostree status
Version: 26.51 (2017-05-31 15:32:01)
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -q atomic-devmode
# cat /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg | grep devmode | wc -l
Can you give more details to reproduce this? What image did you use?
I used an ISO and did a normal interactive install:
But Developer Mode is only currently being installed in the cloud image, right? https://pagure.io/fedora-kickstarts/blob/master/f/fedora-atomic.ks#_131
On the latest F26 AH qcow2 I could find (Fedora-Atomic-26-20170606.n.0.x86_64.qcow2), I am indeed able to enter Developer Mode. You can of course do the `bootentry add` in your own kickstart, though the goal of devmode is to provide an easy way to test out FAH with minimal setup, so it wouldn't make sense to put it e.g. in the interactive defaults ks.
Just to clarify, the idea of Developer Mode is to bypass the need for cloud-init metadata when booting the cloud image. Obviously, if you're using the installer, cloud-init is not an issue for you in the first place. If you're creating *your own* cloud images, then you'll need to have that same `bootentry add` bit we use in Fedora AH kickstart if you'd like a Developer Mode entry.
Feel free to re-open if I missed something!
