Development

  1. Build and test the installer for development
  2. Release process

Build and test the installer for development

NOTE: The install subcommand writes directly to a block device (disk) and consumes the entire device. The device specified to the installer needs to be available and not currently in use. You cannot target a disk that is currently mounted.

Build coreos-installer and use it to install a Fedora CoreOS testing image to a partitionable loop device:

cargo build
truncate -s 8G image-file
sudo losetup -P /dev/loop0 image-file
sudo target/debug/coreos-installer install /dev/loop0 -s testing

Release process

Releases can be performed by creating a new release ticket and following the steps in the checklist there.
