    • use fedora7 updates too
    • update configs from cronjob
    • make it possible to trigger build manually
      • run another cronjob every minute to see if build has been triggered manually
    • check for config changes every hour and trigger build if needed
      • also compare against previous package list
    • waiting for next anaconda bugfix, submit it as bug to bugzilla
    • run fai from anaconda postinstall

    • set it up with fai
    • provide mirror via nfs

    • 1st rename to xs-repo :)
    • set it up with fai
  • schoolserver
    • add libertas kernel
    • reinstall-safe partition layout (data partitions), to ensure we can reinstall the schoolserver and dont have to upgrade from fedora7 to 10 manually...
  • xs-dev2fai
    • mkdir /var/www/html/holger && chown
    • setenforce permissive, otherwise vhost fedora.laptop.org doesnt work

    • svn commit softupdate-git-rpm branch from local disc
    • configure remote logging
    • randomized cron for updates


open questions/remarks

  • http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Trial1_Server_Image - looks outdated
  • how to define classes for a host? map mac-addresses to machines to classes? -> file in /etc
  • livecd-creator has the following in its config file: rm -rf /usr/share/doc/* - thats not soo good ;)
  • The liveinst bits are included in anaconda since anaconda-11.2.0.39-1. So liveinst packagae is not needed anymore.
partitioning proposal
20gb for /
5gb for /tmp, maybe 10
5gb for /var/log, maybe 10
10gb for /var
260 for /home (or 250) or diving this into /home and /$path/backup
