Re: [atomic-devel] Info regarding process for generating [custom] ISO

HI Sinny,

Thanks for helping us with the logs. We were able to go forward and build iso with Lorax. We need some more advice on adding additional packages. What was tried was a custom repo was added to the kickstart file(interactive-defaults.ks) and specified the packages. But to no luck the custom packages were not in the final iso. 

So question
1, Does the kickstart file need to run rpm-ostree in the KS file?
2, Lorax when run shows checking dependencies and comes up with a list of 773 pkgs. Any idea where this list is?

I agree with what Dusty recommended, it would be easier to use
Silverblue ISO and using a custom kickstart that point the install at
your custom OSTree repo/ref

If you still want to create your own ISO, few pointers which may help
you to understand how we build  Fedora Silverblue ISO today:
- We use lorax command to build ISO
- Command which was used to build F31 Silverblue ISO is in log
. On the top of the log you will see a big lorax command passing
various options. Lot of them are repos link which points to packages
source location. Interesting line to pick from the log is the one
which starts from " + lorax --product=Fedora --version=31
--release=1.9 "
- Various configs options which was used is available at
https://pagure.io/pungi-fedora/blob/f31/f/fedora-final.conf#_747 . It
contains links to different repos used as well

Hope this helps.
