Possibility of F7-Test3-KDE?



Hi.

I just want to ask how do you think about this question: Will it be
anyhow possible to create an _official_ version of a kde livecd for
test3? If Max's proposal [1] should come true (and assuming that nobody
else is working on this that I am not aware of) we really _need_ at
least two test versions.


With the last changes to livecd-creator I was able to create a
working (and installable) livecd for kde (read: working for me). I think
it would be essentially to get some some feedback. ATM the feedback 
could be much better. Sure: I have some issues that could be done
better or that are not working at the moment. But for a test1 of a 
kde-livecd this should be ok.

The current kickstart file for F7-Test3-KDE is attached. If you want to
create this, have a look at the wiki [2]. Also the current package list
must be discussed [3].


Some comments about the kickstart file:

> # create /etc/sysconfig/desktop (needed for installation)
> cat > /etc/sysconfig/desktop <<EOF
> DESKTOP="KDE"
> DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE"
> EOF

Due to a bug in anaconda [4] (should be fixed in cvs but haven't tried
it yet) KDE is not the standard desktop after an installation. It must 
be choosed manually after first boot. 

> # /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/zz-liveinst.sh is confusing kde on login
> # so remove it for now
> rm -f /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/zz-liveinst.sh

current version breaks livecd-login [5]. This must also be done
after installation. So this is just a workaround for this. Just 
as this one:

> # workaround to put liveinst on desktop (should not be needed but 
> # /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/zz-liveinst from anaconda doesn't do this
> atm)
> cat > /home/fedora/.kde/Autostart/liveinst <<END
> #! /bin/bash
> cp /usr/share/applications/liveinst.desktop /home/fedora/Desktop/
> sed -i
> 's/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/' /home/fedora/Desktop/liveinst.desktop
> END
>
> chmod +x /home/fedora/.kde/Autostart/liveinst

If somebody knows a better solution to get an icon for liveinst on the
desktop: Please let me know!

And also there is the earlier mentioned issue:
> - minor issue: messagebus complains about an username "gdm"

And for the moment (until kdenetwork is splitted up):
- on laptops kwifimanager is also started (besides knetworkmanager)


At this point I really want to thank David Zeuthen and especially
Jeremy Katz for their great help and their fast responses to my mails
and bug reports.


Sebastian
