bare fedora-live-desktop.ks overflows
Last modified: 2012-08-07 16:19:20 EDT
Description of problem:
A basic attempt fails due to overflown image space.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
rm -rf /var/cache/live/*
livecd-creator --config=/usr/share/spin-kickstarts/fedora-live-desktop.ks --cache=/var/cache/live
Transaction couldn't start:
installing package wqy-zenhei-fonts-0.9.46-2.fc15.noarch needs 17MB on the / filesystem
installing package ipw2100-firmware-1.3-12.fc15.noarch needs 64MB on the / filesystem
Error creating Live CD : Unable to install: Could not run transaction.
Together with fedora-live-minimization.ks it can be built; but I believe that it should not be required and fedora-live-desktop.ks should build on its own.
Probably the file system image size needs to get raised. It's odd that this is even getting that far though, as there are dependency conflicts currently blocking the cd sized image, that I would also expect to be blocking the one targeting 1 GB.
Once the file conflict issues are resolved, I'll take a look at seeing what a reasonable bump in size might be.
Looks like I see conflicts, because I look at the testing repo as well. I'll try testing this tonight or tomorrow without the testing repo and see if I can figure out how much to raise the image size by.
BTW the filesystem image should be much larger by default anyway so that one has enough space for `yum install' of missing pieces while the Live system is running.
The size I am talking about doesn't affect that. It only affects the initial build.
I looked and the live desktop spin doesn't override the default size of 3 GB used for CD sized images. So it seems reasonable that it should get bumped. I am going to try 4 GB instead. I want to also test of the filesystem type still gets inherited if I just give a new size or if I need to repeat that as well. So I haven't push a commit upstream yet.
It looks like it was just short at 3 GB, so 4 GB should be fine for the foreseeable future. I'll push the commit later tonight.
This is now in the upstream git repo. There will likely be a new spin-kickstarts package built to show up on the beta release.
This message is a notice that Fedora 15 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 15. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '15' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 15 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
