Re: [Rdo-list] Automatic resizing of root partitions in RDO Icehouse



Oh, no problem here either if I use the tdl only, using both a kickstart (-a) and a tdl is where the problem began, every step was slow, partitioning, package install, post-install scripts..., and so on until the error showed up.

I'm pretty sure it was an error on my part, more likely in the kickstart.

In the end, for the fedora images I settled using appliance-creator and got an image able to autogrow using one of the fedora 20 cloud kickstarts as base (kickstarts from here: https://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/cloud-kickstarts.git/tree/generic)

I really appreciate all your help! 

I'll be documenting later in the RDO wiki for future reference

I just did a simple test to create a guest via Oz on Fedora 20 and it
just works. Here's my invocation details:

TDL file:

  $ cat f20.tdl
  <template>
    <name>$NAME</name>
    <os>
      <name>Fedora</name>
      <version>20</version>
      <arch>x86_64</arch>
      <install type='url'>
        <url>http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/releases/20/Fedora/x86_64/os</url>
      </install>
      <rootpw>fedora</rootpw>
    </os>
    <description>Fedora 20</description>
  </template>


Invoke `oz-install`:

    $ oz-install -d 4 f20.tdl 2>&1 | tee f20.log


Once the install is done, define the libvirt XML for the guest and start
it:

    $ virsh define f20-jeos
    $ virsh start f20-jeos --console

"It's a wiki, be bold" :-). You can trivially make docs once you
login with your OpenID or other mechanisms listed on RDO wiki.
