Re: Help with Anaconda changes



Thanks Leslie. I think spins are using CD and I think Anaconda does not need to be modified in that case because it installs everything from CD and CD has only selected packages for the spin.

I'm thinking of following approach to cover all types of install.

1. Always install open-vm-tools, basically add it to the core packages.
2. Remove this package after installation if not running inside a VM on VMware.

I will use systemd-detect-virt (http://0pointer.de/blog/projects/detect-virt.html) for checking virtual environment. I can't do conditional install because network connectivity is not guaranteed.

Any inputs/thoughts?

Thanks,
Ravindra

Hi,  There  are a few Feora Spins that do something similar to what you are requesting.  May I suggest you search for Fedora Spins, and contact the individuals who created them.

Could someone please help me on this?

Thanks,
Ravindra

I forgot to mention, I also came across 'Comps' wiki page:

It appears that I should be modifying 'comps-f19.xml.in' on 'git.fedorahosted.org/git/comps.git'. Is that correct understanding?

Thanks,
Ravindra

Hi,

I work for VMware and I'm packaging open-vm-tools in Fedora.

I'm new to Anaconda. I would like to contribute a change to Anaconda, so that during OS install, open-vm-tools  is selected/installed by default on virtual machines hosted on VMware.

Could someone please help/guide me with making Anaconda changes for the requirement above? What files/functions should be modified? How to go about it (available mechanisms to perform virtualization check)? We have got two suggestions for this 'virt-what' and 'systemd'. I would really appreciate to see some examples of either approach and what is recommended for Anaconda. I'm looking for quick pointers, so that I can make the changes/test and submit the patch for review as soon as possible.

I would also like to know if one change (bugfix) would be sufficient for Fedora and RHEL, or do I need to make two separate Anaconda fixes for Fedora and RHEL.

I also got to know about this Red Hat bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=884385 ? If possible, could someone please grant me access to this bug?

FWIW, my target is to get these changes done in time for Fedora 19 and RHEL 7.

Thanks in advance,
Ravindra
