Re: adding PowerNV as a new PPC machine type in the installer (rhbz#1303219)



Hi Dan,

You don't need to merge anything. All changes can be done by one
updates image. We are creating updates image with new Blivet changes
all the time.

You can do this manually from anaconda source (with your changes) by
calling:

./scripts/makeupdates -t <ANACONDA_TAG> -k

Then you will see ./updates/ folder in the anaconda git root. You can
copy whole blivet to the path:

./updates/run/install/updates/blivet

That way you can test both Anaconda and Blivet changes together.

Another solution is to use this tool:

https://github.com/rhinstaller/devel-tools/tree/master/anaconda_updates

Anaconda updates should be able to automate some steps but it requires
additional configuration.
