|Summary||0008239: [RFE] include installer images in update composes|
|Description||Currently package upgrades are provided through the upgrade repo, but this does not coveri nstaller images.|
The problem is that bugs which affect anaconda are never landing in any installer image, so currently I need to wait for the next minor release to get an installer image updated.
I'd love to see regular updates of the
- pxeboot initrd, vmlinuz and squashfs images
- efi boot image
The regular updates will help to enable the CI for oVirt Node (and Engine) which are using CentOS.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|The images I speak about are locate i.e. here: http://artfiles.org/centos.org/7/os/x86_64/images/ (and in paths below)|
|I believe this is a good use case, and aligns with our monthly build strategy. I'll follow up on this.|
Are you looking for this build to run nightly ?
note that there are typically no anaconda updates between releases, so it might be 6 to 8 months before you see any changes there. You will ofcourse see updates and changes to the rest of the dep chain and the kernel as updates are issued.
Which also implies that you get to own the entire problem space - if this is ok with you guys, i can look at plumbing in nightly distro builds.
Because, as you said, anaconda is not often updated, I'd not expect nightlies, but maybe weekly builds, mainly tp pick up eventually - already mentioned by you - dependencies, like multipath or blivet, which can affect an installation.
For this special case it was the case that some important updates were shipped in an updted anaconda image shortly after the release (IIRC), and these important updates are missing in the current installer image.
Is there any update on this?
I still see no updated installer images?
