Fedora 13 liveusb-creator problem, can’t download fedora 13 direct from the app.

I’ve installed liveusb-creator prior to a Fedora release party where we will provide people the possibility to install fedora 13 on their usb stick. I didn’t have any live cd iso so I tried to select the “Download Fedora” option, but I was surprised to see that there’s not option to install Fedora 13. So here’s the workaround.

Edit the file /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/liveusb/releases.py

# vim /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/liveusb/releases.py

and add those line:

 'name': 'Fedora 13 (i686)',
 'url': 'http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/13/Live/i686/Fedora-13-i686-Live.iso',
 'sha256': '47ccc37db256387b70857f53a6067e8d50e692c9aa85e45e63e5190c5d1e0942',

 'name': 'Fedora 13 KDE (i686)',
 'url': 'http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/13/Live/i686/Fedora-13-i686-Live-KDE.iso',
 'sha256': '6828c02f2bce4ec3bd1ca488df8662640bf53fe7724913310295a5f5f6502cf8',

 'name': 'Fedora 13 (x86_64)',
 'url': 'http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/13/Live/x86_64/Fedora-13-x86_64-Live.iso',
 'sha256': 'c16923e9c2f04af3609c9534f32ea280e4d2c3af50e704344ccb35090f87065a',

 'name': 'Fedora 13 KDE (x86_64)',
 'url': 'http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/13/Live/x86_64/Fedora-13-x86_64-Live-KDE.iso',
 'sha256': '789d7090d39230f0e9b16ed3276974223c120db3120c48e53fa95a6f1604c650',

Save this and restart liveusb-creator, you should have the option to download Fedora 13. This is a temporary workaround, untill the package get fixed.

For your information, the file has been updated few weeks ago on https://fedorahosted.org/liveusb-creator/browser/liveusb/releases.py but the packages included in Fedora 13 didn’t include this updated file. I’ve submitted the information to the maintainer, the fixed package should come soon.



Update :

This bug is fixed there’s an update for Fedora 13 https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/liveusb-creator-3.9.2-1.fc13 and Fedora 12 https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/liveusb-creator-3.9.2-1.fc12

Forget about the workaround, you can just update to the lastest version of the package!
