Kickstart to RootFS Builder

This project provides the ability build rootfs file from kickstart input file in a docker/podman container environment. Output rootfs files can be used create base images for different OSs (AlmaLinux, Cent OS, Rocky Linux) etc.

Building local

Two different variants of the image almalinux/ks2rootfs are avilable.

Building almalinux/ks2rootfs:latest image tag

Use follwing command latest tag image to create rootfs files for docker and WSL images.

docker build -t almalinux/ks2rootfs -f Dockerfile .

Building almalinux/ks2rootfs:livecd-tools image tag

Use follwing command livecd-tools tag image to create SIG/LiveMedia ISO images, check GitHub repo.

docker build -t almalinux/ks2rootfs:livecd-tools -f Dockerfile.livecd .

Using almalinux/ks2rootfs:latest image tag

Use latest tag image to create rootfs files for docker and WSL images.

Using lastet Image tag

Run following command under tests folder. Test script kickstart files are available at kickstarts. NOTE: These scripts test use only. Official docker image kickstart files are avaialble in GitHub docker-images repository.

Use command below to create default docker files

docker run --rm --privileged -v "$PWD:/build:z" \
    -e KICKSTART_FILE=kickstarts/almalinux-8-default.x86_64.ks \
    -e IMAGE_NAME=almalinux-8-docker-default.x86_64.tar.gz \
    -e OUTPUT_DIR=default \
    -e BUILD_TYPE=default \
    almalinux/ks2rootfs

Use command below to create base docker files

docker run --rm --privileged -v "$PWD:/build:z" \
    -e KICKSTART_FILE=kickstarts/almalinux-8-base.x86_64.ks \
    -e IMAGE_NAME=almalinux-8-docker-base.x86_64.tar.gz \
    -e OUTPUT_DIR=base \
    -e BUILD_TYPE=base \
    almalinux/ks2rootfs

Use command below to create init docker files

docker run --rm --privileged -v "$PWD:/build:z" \
    -e KICKSTART_FILE=kickstarts/almalinux-8-init.x86_64.ks \
    -e IMAGE_NAME=almalinux-8-docker-init.x86_64.tar.gz \
    -e OUTPUT_DIR=init \
    -e BUILD_TYPE=init \
    almalinux/ks2rootfs
