Building a fedora spin

 

Install and Configure mock

# dnf install mock
# usermod -a -G mock <user>

Here’s how you setup a Fedora 27 x86_64 environment.

$ mock -r fedora-27-x86_64 --init
$ mock -r fedora-27-x86_64 --install lorax-lmc-novirt git vim-minimal pykickstart

For a different arch or release modify the mock configuration file.

Enable network access in mock. Modify config_opts[‘rpmbuild_networking’] to True.

$ sudo vi /etc/mock/site-defaults.cfg

Kickstart files

Inside the mock chroot or container, clone the kickstarts git repository. If your system is using SELinux it needs to be set to Permissive mode while running lorax. The –old-chroot might not be needed for you. I had to use it because I had problem with loop device inside mock.

$ sudo setenforce 0
$ mock -r fedora-27-x86_64 --shell --old-chroot
<mock-chroot> sh-4.4# git clone https://pagure.io/fedora-kickstarts.git

Modify the fedora-repo.ks. You’ll have to comment the rawhide repo and uncomment this line:

 %include fedora-repo-not-rawhide.ks

ksflatten

change directory into fedora-kickstarts and flatten a kickstart

<mock-chroot> sh-4.4# cd fedora-kickstarts
<mock-chroot> sh-4.4# ksflatten --config fedora-live-workstation.ks -oFedora-MyLiveCrypto.ks --version F27

You should see a warning about redundant “part /”, go edit the flat-fedora-live-workstation.ks and remove one of them. If you want to remove packages or group of packages, add stuff etc.. That’s where you’ll do it. For the first time I suggest you just go with the original kickstart file just to verify everything is working.

Get the iso and test it

You’ll find the iso in “/var/lib/mock/fedora-27-x86_64/root/var/lmc” just copy it somewhere else and test it using Virtualbox, kvm or qemu.

If you want to build a new iso you’ll have to delete the “/var/lmc” inside your mock, otherwise livemedia-creator won’t start.

New project, MyLiveCrypto

It’s been a long time since my last post here. A lot of things have changed and getting older with more responsibility mean less time to play around and update my internet life!

So a little recap of the last year for my digital life, I’m now a full time Openstack administrator and a lot of my time last year has been used to learn about the Openstack platform and read about blockchains and distributed ledger technology. I really liked the connection blockchain made with the opensource and the decentralized and fair way of doing things.

With Crypto you are responsible for your own security, the blockchain is deemed secure, but you have to handle and keep your private key in a safe place. That’s the weak point for most people, this and not sending eth to scammer impersonating vitalik on twitter…

So here I am, and here’s my new project, MyLiveCrypto. The idea is pretty simple, a readonly Live Fedora spin with CryptoCurrency wallet already installed. Anybody running windows could reboot their PC/Laptop, boot into the live image and at the very least they won’t have to worry about getting their private key stoled by a virus or a malware. I understand that using this spin put the trust on the creator, I don’t have yet a good way to mitigate this but as the project advance I hope to find ways of being transparent enough so other people could look into the details and verify everything.

This is the first draft so I would like to have comments and idea, here’s a recap of the main feature I aim for the V0.1 release, this is gonna be a small start as I have to learn the spin process and create few packages, follow fedora guideline etc…

  • Live image with graphical desktop
  • Firefox and Brave already installed
  • Basic packaging of MEW and MyCrypto. The first release will only contain Ethereum wallet.
  • Basic packaging for a local version of ethaddress.org offline paper wallet generator (https://www.reddit.com/r/ethereum/comments/3jz85n/ethaddressorg_paper_wallets_for_ethereum/)
  • Basic packaging of offline paperwallet generator for Bitcoin (https://github.com/pointbiz/bitaddress.org)
  • Basic rebrand of the visual of background and plymouth splash screen
  • Documentation with best practice, hint and rule of thumb regarding the use of the live image. I want this to open automatically when the X Session start.

Todo for V0.2

  • Find a way to pre-install few browser extensions, metamask, Cryptonite, EtherAddressLookup
  • Make few posts on reddit to see what people think of the ideas and create a poll to see which wallet should I add into the distro for other blockchain
  • Add more Ethereum wallet.
  • Add more Bitcoin wallet.
  • Try to see if Parity could be installed, with geth 1.8 fast sync on a usd key to provite a metamask alternative ?

Ideas for later

  • Grub menu with a selection for booting completely offline to generate transaction with “offline wallet” (at least MEW or MyCrypto).
  • Offer easy usb key encryption to store private keys. Careful with the FS used, people might want to read this key on windows.
  • Package and install Ledger wallet desktop app once it’s released.
  • Look into different solution to verify the integrity of the live image.

That’s it for now, I’ll update this blog when I reach certain milestone, like completing a package etc.. For now I’m working to generate a basic live media image, once everything work as I’d like to and I’m comfortable with the process, I’ll put more work into the MEW and MyCrypto packaging.

Let me know if you are interested in the project!

Fedora 15 problem with Empathy and you are unable to connect to msn ?

LAST UPDATE #2: An update as been pushed in the Fedora Testing repo and correct this problem. If you want to install this update you just have to use the enablerepo feature just like that:

#yum install papyon --enablerepo=updates-testing

The repository is enabled only for this update!


UPDATE #1: This has worked for me yesterday, but it’s not working anymore.. I haven’t been able to fix the issue… Please report your test and problems in the bug report at: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=750884



Papyon : Can't login in Windows live : accountab.py:202:_HandleABFindAllResponse:AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'find'

If you get this erorr reported by ABRT on Fedora 15 and you are unable to connect to msn with empathy, here’s a workaround.

Here’s the bug report if you want to share your problem regarding this issue:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=750884

The workaround consist of a upstram patch that has been released. It will probably work it’s way to fedora soon but for now you need to do some work by hand.

Here you can get the code to update: http://cgit.collabora.com/git/user/maiku/papyon.git/commit/?h=bug-42689&id=011201e47004538e732f247bfeb21634c6e1d97f

As you can see you have to edit three files. The path I will give you is the exact path under Fedora 15 but can change with other distrib. The line with “-” need to be commented with a “#” at the beginning of the line, and the line with a + need to be added..

1 – /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/papyon/service/description/SingleSignOn/RequestMultipleSecurityTokens.py

- CONTACTS = ("contacts.msn.com", "MBI")
+ CONTACTS = ("local-bay.contacts.msn.com", "MBI")
2 – /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/papyon/service/description/AB/__init__.py
-url = "http://contacts.msn.com/abservice/abservice.asmx"
+url = "http://local-bay.contacts.msn.com/abservice/abservice.asmx"
3 – /usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/papyon/service/description/Sharing/__init__.py
-url = "http://contacts.msn.com/abservice/SharingService.asmx"
+url = "http://local-bay.contacts.msn.com/abservice/SharingService.asmx"

That’s it!

S2LQ Fedora presence report

The S2LQ is now over. We had two great days and a lot of people had come! There was more than 600 persons who sign up for the free event which make this event one of the top 3 biggest event in the computer industry in Quebec, Canada!

First, sorry for the delay of this report, there’s a lot of thing happening in my life those last weeks and unfortunately I don’t have all the time I want to invest in my community activities..

That said, here’s a picture of the booth ( and me ) at the S2LQ

Unfortunately we haven’t received the  Fedora 14 DVD and there was a bunch of F13 DVD/Live cd, so I gave those media to people and tell them to download the lastest version if they like it! I almost gave an entire box of DVD and LiveCD, I can’t tell you how many, but during those two days a lot of people come back home with Fedora media to try it :)The stickers and button were pretty popular too!

So what can I say regarding the event..

My main goal was:

  1. Position Fedora in Quebec city. Show to the people that there are people using Fedora and there’s help here in Quebec city if they have trouble!
  2. Put some visibility for the Fedora Project. This one was a success with all the media distributed and with the big Fedora vertical banner
  3. Explain to people the relationship between Redhat and the Fedora Project
  4. Create some connection between the member of other community in the Quebec area ( other distribution, project etc… )
  5. Publicize the fact that there’s two Fedora ambassadors in Quebec city, and where to look if they want to be informed of release party and other events.
  6. Explain what are the main goal of the Fedora as a Linux distribution, what are the differences with the other distributions etc..

All those objectives has been achieved! I’m really proud of this event, I’ve met a lot of people involved in very different way in Opensource and heard of project born here and we didn’t even know!

I event get a picture with Richard Stallman! Again not the best picture ever.. I don’t know what’s wrong with me an pictures ;)

Thanks for everyone who helped me for this event, I think about Larry Cafiero who sent me the vertical banner and the button, Jean-Francois Saucier who gave me the F13 media, ng who sent me Fedora t-shirt which I didn’t receive on time unfortunately :( ,Michael Lessard and Claude Reeves for all the talk during spare time between presentation! ;) Ho, and Thanks the Laurent Bounin and everyone from the APELL who make this event a success!

Fedora 13 Release party – Québec

Yesterday it was my first release party as an organizer. I was a little bit nervous, because I had to burn few live cd by hand because our official Fedora 13 media are stuck at the custom by UPS. I’ve made a quick presentation assisted by Jean-Francois with the new features of Fedora 13 and videos was playing during people was talking to each other.

Jean-Francois and me arrived at 16h to install the setup and wait for people to come. Around 17h people start to show up and everyone was naturally talking together. I would like to thanks RedHat folks, Michael Lessard and Claude Reeves, for taking time to come and talk with people, Michael come often to other LUG or release party it’s a little bit easier for him, he’s from Québec city.. But Claude is from Montreal so it was really great to see both of them at our event! Thanks again to both of you for your presence!

I think the event was a success, there was around 12-13 persons at the peak, it’s a little bit less than Ubuntu release get here in Québec city, but they are doing release party since few years, so they already have their “returning people”. This is what Jean-Francois and me will focus on the next year, trying to bring more new peoples and new faces to release party and other events!

Here are few pictures I took:

This it the “chat” room! Oops empty pitcher… Need refill!

I’ve installed my laptop with a projector, playing different videos from RedHat YouTube channel I’ve downloaded using youtube-dl. Fedora 13 Launch as you can see Paul Frields on the screen, the famous Truth Happens, How code makes it into RHEL, RedHat MRG demo and a remix of truth happens was playing in a loop on the screen. It was the first time we tried this approach and I think people liked it, the video was playing when people was talking, not too loud so people who want to listen was able to and other people around are able to talk with each other without problem. So this is definitely a “Will do it again”. Plus as you can see on the picture we had a “live usb station” which enabled us to create bootable usb stick for people. This wasn’t a really popular approach, but it’s not really a big setup, so I think we will provide it anyways in the next events.

I was trying to find a new way to provide url to people after a presentation or if they ask us on how to get involved in Fedora project or anything else. I bought a Motorola Milestone few months ago which led me to test few software available on the Android market, and I discovered few bar code reader apps after that I started to read about bar code and “how it worked”. I’ve discovered the possibility of new generation of 2D bar code, so I created few QR Code pointing to Fedora 13 Release notes, How to get involved in Fedora project etc… Plus a QR Code for my contact information. To be honest, this way to share url have made a lot of hand to rise, people was asking how it works etc… It was the first time we used this, so I explained to a lot of person how it worked and how they can probably get a barcode reader for their phone, for yesterday this wasn’t a lot helpful and people didn’t really used it. But I’m pretty sure the next time a lot of people will have downloaded the software needed to read those and they will probably start to use it! I think this is a really good way to make a presentation “Interactive” or to share our contact information, a new kind of business card… And a new way to give people “readable stuff” after the presentation!

Here’s another goodies, the Cheat Cube. Not so helpful for long-time Linux user, but new comer tend to like this one really bad! I wasn’t able to translate the whole thing in french, it’s almost always longer to write something in french… But I’ll try to finish this at least for the next release because people really like this, even if they don’t really use it, they build it and let it on their desk, so it make people talk about Fedora and Linux overall, which is not a bad thing at all! ;)

So this is it for my report of our Fedora 13 Release party. I’m pleased to see that people liked it and we really had good feedback regarding the organisation, we will certainly continue in this way for the next release!

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.
