Problems in creating a Fedora installation disk spin (Parsidora)

Parsidora 17 was not released, because fedora installation disks created from Fedora 17 updates repository didn’t work. We decided to skip Parsidora 17 and create Parsidora 18. Parsidora 18 images were ready long time ago, but we have not released it yet. Why? Because if you create an installation disk using pungi (with updates repository enabled), the installer will crash on boot. Unfortunately, the bug is unnoticed after a long time. If you create a Fedora installation disk with release repositories, it works fine but if you try with updates repository enabled, it’ll crash. I’ve tried a lot to find the offending package, but my efforts have been fruitless. I’ve created images with old kernel, anaconda, and even Xorg, but all of them crash.
I’ll try a little longer, but we might decide to release Parsidora 18 with no updates, which is very undesirable. I hope things get better for Fedora 19 and later. 😦

Oh, new Solar (Jalali) year has come 13 days ago and we are in year 1392. Happy Nowruz! 🙂
