Description Ian Main 2008-08-13 13:34:34 EDT
Description of problem:

livecd-creator ignores the --append flag for the bootloader kickstart option.  Also livecd-iso-to-pxe does not carry kernel options over from original iso image.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use --append on bootloader to set any kernel options in kickstart
2. Build livecd image.
3. Verify that they do not show up the syslinux configuration.
Actual results:

--append options are not in syslinux configuration.

Expected results:

any options given to --append should show up on the kernel command line boot opions.

This is also applies to the latest version in f9-updates livecd-tools-017.1-1.fc9
Additional related bug is livecd-iso-to-pxe not taking boot parameters from isolinux.cfg

Please backport to f9-branch:
 32575fd38289cb6777c2e2f9fd9ccc53b0bc8d55 "Listen to bootloader --append"
 7ffdfbc3ca2523f44e0c30a8a9938635d6ba0281 29212b58963fbb366f5451f817c2caad4458a2cf
 i.e. tools/livecd-iso-to-pxeboot.sh changes only from "Honour --append configuration option from the kickstart file."
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2008-10-16 15:41:24 EDT
At this point in Fedora 9's life, changes there are not worth the amount of effort.  Interested users with a very specific need should be able to use the Fedora 10 version without problems, but for most cases, the stability is more worthwhile.

And these do work in the F10 version.
