These kickstarts are intended to be used with the LiveCD Creator from LiveCD Tools.

Spin ISO build quickstart


The instructions below will use the podman command, but you may be able to substitute for docker.

First, pull down the container of the required environment (CentOS Stream 8).

$ sudo podman pull

Assuming you're in the root directory of the Git checkout, set up the container:

$ sudo podman run --privileged --rm -it -v $PWD:/code /bin/bash

Once in the container environment, set up your development environment and run the image build (substitute <livemedia.ks> for the appropriate kickstart):

# Change to the code location
[]$ cd /code
# Install livecd-tools and pykickstart
[]$ dnf --assumeyes install livecd-tools pykickstart
# Flatten the kickstart so that it can be run easily
[]$ ksflatten --config <livemedia.ks> --output livemedia-flat.ks
# Run the image build
[]$ livecd-creator --config livemedia-flat.ks --fslabel CS8-HS-LiveDVD --title=CentOS-Stream-8-Hyperscale-LiveDVD --product=CentOS-Stream-Hyperscale-LiveDVD --releasever=8
