After a long tour of the latest anaconda sources from git, and reading
how cdinstall.c setupCdrom() - seems to trawl the /images/ directory
looking for stage2.img , I find that the /images directory is missing.
Pungi/anaconda had bailed out on me due to unresolved dependencies,
duly noted in the log/$arch.log file, so I was using a broken,
incomplete img. Commenting out the lines that blocked cairo,X.org and
gnome from getting into the build gets me a working installer CD that
So the minimal F9 I can get without starting to splice packages is
471MB, with the following ks:
What approach should I take to get a headless system without breaking
anaconda? This task has no use for X, cairo or gnome :-)
For example. anaconda and anaconda-runtime pull in
- rhpxl, cairo, gtk2, zenity, xorg-x11-font-utils - useful for
anaconda's graphical installer
- desktop-file-utils -- why?
- gnome-python2-gtkhtml2 -- why?
About 1/3 or more of the 1st install CD seems to go to Anaconda's
graphics lust :-)
