Re: Installer support for flatpak



Hello Matthias,

Those steps sound reasonable to me. In addition to that (when those points
below will work) it could be nice to support flatpak as a kickstart command. 
For example to  add remote repositories and it even could be interesting 
having flatpak as Anaconda payload so the  %packages section will support them.

However, everything above is for later better look & feel, for the first version 
the %post section is a great idea. It is nice proof of concept.

I have also a question are you planning to have Atomic Workstation Live DVD or
only netinst?

I'm looking forward to see Atomic Workstation in action ;),

Hi,

I would like to discuss flatpak support for anaconda.

The issue comes up in the context of Atomic Workstation and
rpm-ostree. Currently, the OS image contains a bunch of
preinstalled desktop applications (as rpms). It would make a
lot more sense to move to installing all desktop applications
as flatpaks, so they are independent from the OS.

For preinstalled apps, that means anaconda may have to learn
a bit about flatpak. We are aiming to have flatpaks built in Fedora
infrastructure well before F29, and that would be the time when
we can consider preinstalling them.

When I talked to Colin about this before, he suggested
a few steps for this:

1) Make the flatpak command work in %post
2) Add a flatpak repository to the iso

Is there anything else that is needed ?
