Description Zhan, Yi 2008-05-08 05:04:19 EDT
Description of problem:


I have written a patch for livecd-tools to add ia64 support. The generated image
has been tested on several ia64 boxes. Everything worked fine (haven't test
installing from it yet). The patch is attached. 

Since I am not very familiar with livecd project. What I have done is just
writing a ia64LiveImageCreator subclass for ia64, as x86 does. Then implement
necessary functions. Please review the patch to see if anything is missing or
inappropriate. I'm happy to try things out if you have no easy access to ia64

It's a lot easier to do patch reviews and handling on the list
(fedora-livecd-list) rather than via bugzilla, especially for something substantial.

Just from a quick look, the patch needs at least some work to really be apply-able
* Rather than overriding the __get_kernel_versions() method, it'd be better to
just make the main method more flexible to work with both the ia64 and not case
* The copy_background stuff seems superfluous since it never gets used
* Your copying and bootloader config generation don't support multiple kernels
which is something that we generally support

Nothing else really jumped out at me but others on the list might notice something
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2008-10-15 12:02:22 EDT
Closing due to inactivity and lack of patch submission to fedora-livecd-list
