As for Kadischi, we are working on it internally on cvs, but yet we
can't call it stable enough to package it for release.
I was thinking why not make it available on extras-development.
Perhaps that could bring more testers (since we need testers who have
64 bit machines) and more contributors to push things forward quickly.
Does it break any FE policies if we (from kadischi) start packaging
kadischi for only and only extras-development ?
Please comment on a script supposed to integrate packages from extras
in comps.xml automatically, would it be an usable utility? Anyone with
Now that I have a working liveCD, I have some quick questions
1) I see that liveCD does not have grub on it, so how do we tell that the kernel memory
size should not exceed a certain limit in liveCD ? We can do that in grub by saying
mem=blah on the line that specifies the kernel boot image ?
2) The boot (vmlinuz) image which is not part of any rpm, I think is picked up by anaconda/kadischi
from /boot of my system right ? Now, I will be installing a custom 2.6.15 kernel on my box.
How do I tell kadischi to pick that one and the corresponding vmlinuz/initrd images for the liveCD ?

I just want to add a new package of my own: "xtrainstall-1.0-1.i386.rpm"
in the %packages specification for ks file. This package is installed on my
system and I have also copied the RPM into the Fedora/RPMS repository
used for creating the live CD. I am encountering this from anaconda:
"You have specified that the package 'xtrainstall' should be installed. This package does not exist. Would you like to continue or abort your installation?"
Why is that ?
BTW, I have edited the comps.xml in Fedora/base, to have xtrainstall listed
as a "Base" package. And rpm group info for this xtrainstall rpm that I have created is "System Environment/Base". (In comps.xml there is only "Base" I dont see anything
listed as "System Environment").
Thanks in advance.
