kickstart-builder

Automated ISO builder for kickstart-based installation CDs

Setup:

  • Clone the repo
  • Install requirements:
    • pip3 install -r requirements.txt
    • apt-get install -y bsdtar genisoimage
    • python3 setup.py install
    • (you could use the Dockerfile instead)
  • Prepare at least one ISO (see below)
  • Start it
    • PORT=8087 DATADIR=./isos isoserverd
  • In your browser, visit http://127.0.0.1:8087/

Adding ISOs

For each ISO you want to make available, create a subdirectory under iso_raws with a name matching you want to see in the UI. Unpack the contents of an ISO into this directory. Some files and directories will need to be chmodded so they can be written to. Refer to the example commands below:

cd isos
mkdir ubuntu-16.04.1-server-amd64
cd ubuntu-16.04.1-server-amd64
bsdtar xfp ~/Downloads/ubuntu-16.04.1-server-amd64.iso
chmod 644 isolinux/txt.cfg isolinux/isolinux.bin
chmod 755 preseed/ .

Alternatively, the script add-iso.sh can be used to add an ISO:

./add-iso.sh ~/Downloads/ubuntu-16.04.1-server-amd64.iso

Development Tips

In normal operation, the application loads templates and configs once on startup. If the REFRESH environmental variable is set, it will reload the templates and configs on every page load:

python3 setup.py develop
REFRESH=1 PORT=8080 DATADIR=./isos isoserverd

Additional config templates can be added under the “samples” directory.

Installing the system-config-kickstart provides a tool for generating Kickstart configs:

apt-get install system-config-kickstart
system-config-kickstart

Docker

Run the image like:

  • docker run -it --rm -e PORT=8080 -v /host/iso_raws:/data kickstart
