    The var_log_anaconda is a copy of /var/log/anaconda .
    • anaconda-ks.cfg is availailable here (1233 bytes)
    • The files in the var_log_anaconda directory are

    • The anaconda_screenshots_af_copy directory contains files screenshot-NNNN.png (NNNN = 0000-0076) which are attached here under corresponding names 130705.anaconda_screenshots.NNNN.png
    • Similarly, the firstboot-screenshots dir contains screenshot-NNNN.png (NNNN = 0000-0003) attached as 130705.firstboot-screenshots.NNNN.png
    • The screenshots directories and the screenshots themself will be described and discussed below.

  • A bit later we removed anaconda-screenshots, and moved anaconda_screenshots_af_copy and firstboot-screenshots to
               /opt/root/Install/Inst_SW_aux/ , such that
          [root@localhost initial_installation_logs]# ll

  • The system was installed from a Fedora-18-x86_64_DVD disc.
    Fortunately (unlike to the F17 case), the graphic card was correctly identifyed and dealt with, and the full display resolution 1920x1080 was available and used during the installation.
    So it was a graphical installation via the first line in the installation menu ( ~ "Install Fedora...." ).

  • The screenshots as found in
               ~root/anaconda-screenshots
    are not a full set of those made during the installation.
    This can be associated with a bug discussed in
    • "Anaconda screenshots are not saved after reboot"
      https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=787962 .
      • Bug in F16, to be fixed in F18.
      • Suggested remedy (AMM 2012-03-25 02:14:40 EDT):
        • before rebooting you should run (manually by switching to console Alt-F2)
                        mkdir /mnt/sysimage/root/anaconda-screeenshots
                        cp /tmp/anaconda-screenshots/* \
                           /mnt/sysimage/tmp/anaconda-screenshots/* \
                           /mnt/sysimage/root/anaconda-screenshots/
          
    Fortunately, having faced an even worse situation in F17 installation, now in F18, we followed the above instructions, namely with
                 mkdir /mnt/sysimage/root/anaconda_screenshots_af_copy
                 cp -p /tmp/anaconda-screenshots/* \
                       /mnt/sysimage/tmp/anaconda-screenshots/* \
                       /mnt/sysimage/root/anaconda_screenshots_af_copy/
    This provided the full set of screenshots in
               ~root/anaconda_screenshots_af_copy/
    Actually, it is bigger than the system set, by shots ## 74-76 -- not a big deal but still the last few shots are available too.

  • The other few screenshots from the "FirstBoot" stage are available in
               ~root/firstboot-screenshots .

    Step 1. Loading system from disc

      Hard disk partitioning scheme.

  • We had the following standard partitions on the hard disk:
    • Two Windows partitions:
      sda1  
      sda2 (~100Gb, "Win7")
    • The partitions created while installing Fedora 17 (F17 mount points are indicated):
      sda3 250Mb ext4 /boot  
      sda4       extended partition
      sda5 176GB     LVM physical volume
      sda6 250Mb ext4 /boot2 a reserve for future Linux systems
      sda7 250Mb ext4 /boot3 -"-
      sda8 250Mb ext4 /boot4 -"-
    • The LVM phys. volume (sda5) belongs to the volume group `vg01'.
      It contains the following logical volumes:
      lv name size label fs-type F17-mount-point
      lv_swap 8GB      
      lv_root1 16GB LV1-ROOT1 ext4 /
      lv_opt1 20GB LV1-OPT1 ext4 /opt
      lv_x01 50GB LV1-X01 ext4 /x01

  • In F18 we want to
    • reuse
      lv_swap as swap (as in F17)
      lv_x01 as /x01 (as in F17)
      sda6 as /boot (is /boot2 in F17)
    • reuse too (just mount them)
      sda3 as /boot1 (is /boot in F17)
      sda7 as /boot3 (as in F17)
      sda8 as /boot4 (as in F17)
    • create NEW lv's in volume group vg01:
      lv name size label fs-type F18-mount-point
      lv_root2 19GB LV1-ROOT2 ext4 /
      lv_opt2 20GB LV1-OPT2 ext4 /opt

      Walking through screenshots

  • The screenshots are in the directory
               /opt/root/Install/Inst_SW_aux/anaconda_screenshots_af_copy

    Step 2. Firstboot

  • In the beginning, we entered a shell console with Ctrl+Alt+F2 and made some renaming:
    • /usr/local :
                 mv /usr/local /opt/usr_local
                 ln -s /opt/usr_local /usr/local
      
    • /home :
                 rmdir /home
                 mkdir /opt/home
                 ln -s opt/home /
      

  • The account `testuser' (full name `Test User AF') was created with
    • (user id, group id) = (1000, 1000) ,
    • bash shell (zsh not available!) .
  • As zsh is not available (this was never the case in earlier Fedora/RedHat versions!), we postpone the creation of account `fedotov' for better times...

  • We tried to document the firstboot procedure with a set of screenshots. Unfortunately, only the first 4 of them were found later in
               ~root/firstboot-screenshots/
    and copied to
               /opt/root/Install/Inst_SW_aux/firstboot-screenshots/ .
