Description Warren Togami 2009-04-09 15:53:03 EDT
clumens said that I can make livecd-iso-to-disk copy everything to a USB disk necessary to do a full DVD install from the USB disk.  I aim to improve livecd-iso-to-disk to do this automatically if it detected 

* He said to copy images/install.img to the USB stick
* Copy the DVD ISO to the USB stick
* Add repo=hd:UUID=<foo>:/ to the kernel command line.
* Booting the USB stick, it will automatically mount UUID=<foo> and look for the stage2 install.img.
* Anaconda runs and fails with:

ERROR: failed to resolve device UUID=<foo>
DEBUG: failed to resolve 'UUID=<foo>'

Tested with F11 Beta i386

This is possibly fixed by the fix for Bug #491781, but we can't test it until we have a DVD iso to test.
Comment 2 Jerry Vonau 2009-04-12 15:06:23 EDT
Warren, have a look at:


I just have to update the boot line to have stage2= and repo= in place of method=
for the changes in F11's anaconda.
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2009-04-27 19:37:49 EDT
Bad news, tested F11 Preview DVD iso with anaconda-  It fails with the following syntax:

append initrd=initrd.img repo=hd:UUID=71e3d41f-4f6d-4f20-9952-6fb8a6176df4:/
append initrd=initrd.img repo=hd:/dev/sdb1:/

More "failed to resolve" after anaconda graphical mode had started, around the 2nd or 3rd screen.

Please attach /tmp/anaconda.log, /tmp/storage.log to this bug report.
Comment 5 Warren Togami 2009-04-28 14:03:35 EDT
I retract that, it was my mistake.  My script failed to update the images/ directory.  It was using the F11 Beta install.img.
