Sigh this is a real challenge. I have tried generating various iso's and keep running in to the same problem, the install Disc loads the o/s but when it gets to the point where it should be displaying something, blank screen with blinking cursor. Tried this on two different machines, one new and one old, same results.Currently I am working on the construction of a "build machine".
Current I have been concentrating on:
- preparing another computer to act as a second bench machine for testing ISO builds. My main bench machine holds
the "build machine", don't want to disturb that.
- the creation of a Kickstart file that contains a "minimal" F18 install (with out Amahi and mariadb).
- determining composition requirements to do "pungi builds".
- making tweak changes to the Kickstart file as required to keep pungi happy.
To date progress has been slow, however, today I managed to get some life out of pungi. I will be testing out the resulting CD ISO in the next couple of days (spring yard chores are calling today ). As I get a stable build pattern I will be updating the wiki article in WIP.
So after consulting Dr. Google I found a bug posted on a Red Hat bug site. The current release of the anaconda installer has issues in the creation of install discs. There is a new version that has been in "testing" since February. The latest entries in the bug reported show no update on testing activity. However one person posted something about the "test" version. So I will be adding it to my local updates repo and see what happens next.
No one said this was going to be a simple task...
