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!

Hi all! I'm a 27 years old guy from Quebec city, Canada. I've been playing with Linux since 1998 and start to earn my life using Linux and FOSS around 2005. Since then I've earned few certification and courses including CLP10 (Certified Linux Professional from Novell), RHCE (RedHat Certified Engineer) and JBOSS Administration course. I'm a Linux sys admin and I'm working here in Quebec city for a small company who are RedHat Advanced partner since few years. So I'm trying to always keep me updated on new technology and new RedHat product. The best way I've found to do it is to use and contribute to the Fedora Community. So I've joined the community in mid 2009 as a Fedora Ambassadors, I still learning how everything work in a opensource community, but I really liked what I saw at the 2009 FUDCON in Toronto.
