puias 6

codename pisa

One packages directory One comps file Additional repos

Addons Computational / HPC



In the file, additional yum groups defined. in product.img, product.img is loaded by loader from anaconda runtime.

yum groups

  • pu
  • ias
  • computational

suggest alternative package groups like pu-free pu-nonfree etc.

drop optional.

buildinstall --localscripts --version 6 --product "puias" --release "puias linux 6" --output /tmp/puias6 /data/puias/6/x86_64/os/Workstation

el5 -> el6


Look at pungi

/usr/libexec/anaconda/ used to make a .discinfo file.
/usr/libexec/anaconda/mk-images used to make .treeinfo file.

Rsync the tree then remove things not needed on the dvd

[thomas@host puias]$ rm mirrorlist
[thomas@host puias]$ rm Computational
[thomas@host puias]$ rm repodata.outside
[thomas@host puias]$ rm PUIAS/repodata.outside
[thomas@host puias]$ rm -r PUIAS/repoview

See redundant.

[thomas@host puias]$ rm images/puias-6.1-x86_64-DVD*iso

Make directories for the discs and move Addons to the 3rd disc.

[thomas@host puias]$ mkdir 1 2 3
[thomas@host puias]$ mv Addons 3
[thomas@host puias]$ mv EFI EULA GPL images isolinux mirrorlist Packages PUIAS repodata RPM-GPG-KEY-puias 1
[thomas@host puias]$ mkdir 2/Packages
[thomas@host puias]$ cd 1/Packages

Move large packages over to second disc, trying to make disc 1 small enough for a DVD. Move things that usually aren't required for a server build. Perl-devel is required in the basic desktop build, so move that back after moving all the devel's.

[thomas@host Packages]$ mv *-devel-* ../../2/Packages/
[thomas@host Packages]$ mv eclipse-* ../../2/Packages/
[thomas@host Packages]$ mv* ../../2/Packages/
[thomas@host Packages]$ mv ../../2/Packages/perl-devel* .

Go back up to the root.

[thomas@host Packages]$ cd ../../

Remove the repodata in the root and then move the one from PUIAS to the root

[thomas@host puias]$ rm 1/repodata
[thomas@host puias]$ mv 1/PUIAS/repodata 1
[thomas@host puias]$ ln -s ../repodata 1/PUIAS/repodata

Start a createrepo with a split and media (cd path)

[thomas@host puias]$ createrepo -v -g repodata/comps-puias6.xml --split 1 2 -u 'media://1306249229.307081'

Create a .discinfo and .treeinfo the numbers need to match here .discinfo

--- BEGIN ---
PUIAS Linux 6.1

--- END ---


--- BEGIN ---
family = PUIAS Linux
timestamp = 1321026136.00
variant = PUIAS
totaldiscs = 1
version = 6.1
discnum = 1
packagedir = 
arch = x86_64

kernel = images/pxeboot/vmlinuz

boot.iso = images/boot.iso

mainimage = images/install.img
--- END ---

If you have time, make some checksums for a few things: from yum.misc import checksum checksum('sha256','images/pxeboot/vmlinuz') then put that in the checksums section of .treeinfo

--- BEGIN ---
images/pxeboot/initrd.img = sha256:7dd1303afa583c00cba591d4c397f31df08f05c15f4947eb2143cbb7a0b32811

Now remove all anaconda repo files.

[root@host puias]# cd images
[root@host images]# mkdir /mnt/install
[root@host images]# mount -o loop install.img /mnt/install

(requires squashfs stuff installed)

[root@host images]# cd /tmp; cp -a /mnt/install install
[root@host /tmp]# cd install
[root@host install]# rm etc/anaconda.repos.d/*
[root@host install]# mksquashfs * ../install.img:w
[root@host install]# cp /tmp/install.img ~/puias/1/images/

Now make an iso out of those directories...

[root@host puias]# cd 1
[root@host 1]# mkisofs -o /tmp/6.1-DVD-x86_64.iso -r -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.msg -cache-inodes -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -R -m TRANS.TBL .
[root@host 1]# cd ../2
[root@host 2]# mkisofs -o /tmp/6.1--DVD-2-x86_64.iso -r -cache-inodes -R -m TRANS.TBL .


There is a bug in createrepo that causes it to rewrite all the files incorrectly in primary.xml There is a string replace that is unended, replaces all occurences of _reldir with , which replaces 1 and 2 with nothing

relpath = self.localpath.replace(self._reldir, ) change the line to this: relpath = self.localpath.replace(self._reldir, ,1) in /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/yum/
