R8 specific kickstarts
This branch has Rocky Linux 8 specific kickstarts. These kickstarts vary between cloud images and live images provided in our repositories and mirrors.
Building Live Images
To build live images, you will need to use
livemedia-creator. The former is simpler to use and generally works without
many issues. The latter can be a bit more tricky to work with and typically
runs the installer virtually. However, it can be used without a virtual machine
like in a mock shell.
To use livemedia-creator without using virt, you can use a mock shell. To setup a mock chroot for the purpose of building a live image, you would set it up like so:
# Install mock if you haven't already % dnf install epel-release -y % dnf install mock -y # Add a user to the mock group % usermod -a -G mock user # As the user, setup the mock environment % mock -r rocky-8-x86_64 --init % mock -r rocky-8-x86_64 --install lorax-lmc-novirt vim-minimal pykickstart git # You will need to be in permissive mode temporarily % setenforce 0 # Enter the shell % mock -r rocky-8-x86_64 --shell --isolation=simple --enable-network # Clone the kickstarts and run an installation % git clone https://github.com/rocky-linux/kickstarts % cd kickstarts % livemedia-creator --ks Rocky-8-Workstation.ks \ --no-virt \ --resultdir /var/lmc \ --project="Rocky Linux" \ --make-iso \ --volid Rocky-Workstation-8 \ --iso-only \ --iso-name Rocky-Workstation-8-x86_64.iso \ --releasever=8 \ --nomacboot # This option is important to set, mkfs.hfsplus is not available
With the example above, all of the results will appear in
