[opensuse-factory] ISO image content
Hi,

I've recently run across a problem while building an image with KIWI and using only the openSUSE 11.4 ISO image as repo. For certain image types (pxe and oem) KIWI requires busybox which is not part of the ISO and therefore the KIWI image build process fails when only using the ISO as a source repo.

The KIWI boot image descriptions list the packages required for creation of the KIWI boot images, I think we should make sure that at least those packages are on the media. The reasoning is, that I think it is perfectly reasonable for someone who wants to spin their own image with only packages from the "standard" distro to expect that all those packages are on the media. Therefore, one would set up only the ISO image as a repo and create an image with KIWI. Missing busyboz forces the use of the online repo, or setup of a local mirror or some other concoction, which makes this process more cumbersome than it needs to be.

It should be fairly easy to write a script that parses the boot descriptions provided with KIWI and to assure those packages are on the media.

Thoughts/comments?

Thanks,
Robert
