Hello all,
     I am happy to announce nightly builds of the Atomic ISO installer
composes with Fedora 22 + Updates[0]


I was thinking about doing also nightly builds of (PXE-to-) live Atomic
images [0]. Would this flow make sense in Fedora build process?

1) Build raw disk image with fedora-cloud-atomic-pxetolive.ks spin-kickstart
(the ks may need some update).

2) Using this image run a script similar to build-iso.sh which would
basically call

livemedia-creator --make-ostree-live --disk-image=/var/tmp/atomic-live.raw

in mock.

livemedia-creator is part of lorax package. It creates ext4 rootfs image,
merges /boot partition in (required for ostree sysroot), restores selinux
labels, packs it into downloadable live image (squashfs). Also it modifies
initrd by adding modules required for booting into live image, and creates
PXE configuration template - some details are in [0].
I think that would be great, it would certainly allow for the ability
to test that stuff. I'm admittedly very unfamiliar with it though, is
any of that currently being composed by lorax in the trees? Example[0]

If it is not then I would absolutely be open to adding it if you
wouldn't mind sending a pull request[1] with either a new script or
addition to the build-iso.sh script that's there, I would be happy to
put it in the same build process and have it in the same location. I
know the pxe-to-live stuff is aimed for Fedora 23 but if we can enable
it in these nightlies in the mean time then all the better.

Here is WIP script I tested locally:


so you can take a look. Details are in commit message and FIXME comments.

It is using atomic installer iso created by build-iso.sh and runs livemedia-creator/virt-install with the iso on the host to create disk image (so the host needs lorax, libvirt, virt-install, and qemu-kvm packages). Only the second stage - creating live images from disk image - is run in mock. If this is fine by you, the script could be used after a few minor changes, mainly removing lorax hack when lorax 22.12 is moved to stable, which should be soon.
