It's a Brand New World!
by Jesse Keating
It has been a few years since I was last heavily interested in how Anaconda did it's things. Having recently gotten back into it for my new role, it's kinda cool to see how much has changed.
buildinstall is out, lorax is in
mkintrd is out, dracut is in
Booting the installer
Loader is out, dracut is in
sysvinit/upstart is out, systemd is in
Too much really to list here, I'm still trying to get a grip on it, and it's all changing again!
So I've had a fun few weeks getting used to the new way of doing things, stumbling around, mumbling about "In my day!" and waiving my cane. The reality is that these are all really cool improvements, and it's made working on changes quite a lot easier to manage. I don't like that feeling that the world has moved on while I wasn't looking, but then again, that's OK, that's what the world should do. I just get to be that New Guy again for a bit.tags:
