I try build Minimal Installation CD with systemd instead OpenRC via Catalyst. I use specs files from RelEng repository.

Currently it is not ready for building ISO images with systemd. I tried to find how I can improve instruments to make possible solve described issue.

There is file catalyst/targets/livecd_stage1.py. It contains code that will be executed during building Minimal Installation CD stage1.

It contains (line 45) hard-coded requirement of package app-misc/livecd-tools. And app-misc/livecd-tools depends from OpenRC.

So, I have proposal how we can add support systemd to livecd_stage1.
  • Package:
    • Create additional package (app-misc/livecd-tools-systemd)
    • Or add USE-flag "systemd" to existing package app-misc/livecd-tools and improve existing package.

  • Target "livecd_stage1" in Catalyst:
    • Do nothing, USE-flag "systemd" in package "app-misc/livecd-tools" will do everything.
    • Or add some logic to livecd_stage1 that will select proper package (app-misc/livecd-tools or app-misc/livecd-tools-systemd)
    • Or add extra target "livecd_systemd_stage1"

I would be grateful to receive clarifications before preparing the patches.

Sorry to see that you haven't gotten a response here. I've just started dealing with these issues as well. Did you make any progress?

I've been working with the livedvd images. I put together a working stage1 *without* systemd. I'd like to create a systemd-compatible version as well, but as you've correctly-observed, it requires a customized livecd-tools package.

This does not appear to be a very challenging package to port to systemd; I'm just not there yet. I need to get my stage2 working first. At the moment, I'm trying to determine the intent of the @REPO_DIR@ symbol; this doesn't seem to be documented anywhere.

Here is my functional livedvd-stage1.spec:

Code:

subarch: amd64
version_stamp: installer-latest
target: livecd-stage1
rel_type: default
profile: default/linux/amd64/17.0/desktop
snapshot: latest
source_subpath: default/stage3-amd64-desktop-latest
portage_confdir: /projects/gentoo-live-catalyst/etc/portage/

A set of use flags was required; this is still a bit messy, but it produced a stage1 without error:

In some follow-up step, I'll remove the redundant flags. I just realized the contradiction with my consolekit pam flag, due to a late-night debugging session.

I also added some systemd-related files to package.mask for debugging purposes; this shouldn't be necessary, but here it is:
Code:

sys-apps/gentoo-systemd-integration
sys-apps/systemd
virtual/tmpfiles

I personally submitted a bug report about this issue myself, which includes a couple of patches replacing the hard dependency with a USE flag conditional dependency. Now it’s just a waiting game to see if these patches are accepted or not.

Workaround: add “!(app-misc/livecd-tools)” to “livecd/packages” section
