Re: [Fedora-livecd-list] Git/Rawhide vs. v009/F7 ?

Two different recommendations have been posted on what version of Fedora to use (F7 presumably with livecd-tools 009 vs. rawhide and livecd-tools from git). Rawhide and git (seems to me) to be a formula for a very unstable development environment. But, livecd-tools 009 and F7 seem to be pretty out of date. BUT... that's my guessing. Why one combination versus the other from someone in the livecd development loop?

I'm actually only a livecd-tools developer, I.e. the end results I'm
going after are merely getting patches applied, and enjoying that that
will help people out.  So given that caveat- my experience tells me-

What you said pretty much sums it up.  livecd-tools is still immature
and developing and improving rapidly (on average more than 1 git commit
per day over the past few months).  As such, the traditional wisdom that
F7+updates is 'stable', is countered by the fact that it is pretty
seriously old and different from git-head.

And rawhide should be approaching stable.

I recently did a completely fresh build env, using f7+updates, git
livecd, and then rawhide yum and iniparse rpmbuild --rebuild(ed) because
that was required to get git livecd working on an otherwise f7+updates.
 This is strictly anecdotal, and only works for people comfortable with
--rebuilding rawhide srcrpms on a stable distro.

And how do you modify grub arguments for a livecd (besides doing weird foo on a created image...)?

I haven't used the feature, but my guess is that Jeremy has worked it
out to use the same bootloader options that kickstart understands.  But
of course I'm also guessing this feature is not in the f7+updates
version, but only git-head.

Could someone give some hint about how to find out what is making it fail?

I encountered tracebacks only when creating live images on a F7 box?
Use a rawhide box instead with the git version of livecd-tools

However my livecd images built on F8 automatically do a media check !!
Thus wasting about 15 minutes on a 2.7GHZ box.
Then there's kernel panics.

The only way I could boot these livecd images is to edit the arguments on grub:
* removing "check" ??? <<<<<<<<<<< why is this by default ????????
* added enforcing=0
