Configure OEM
Open, WishlistPublic


We should have the ability to do an OEM install.

This is absolutely required for Pi images, because it would be just like it would if someone just selected "OEM mode" in the installer.

This'll be cutting it tight; @wxl what's your opinion on punting Pi images + proper OEM to 19.04?

+1. I'd love to have it but I'm not sure we can get it in on time. At the minimum, punt Pi. We *might* be able to work out OEM.

Agreed. Punted!

Looks like there are upstream docs.

I'll take this one and get it done as soon as humanly possible so we can get the ball rolling. Here's what needs to happen:

  1. The new upstream release of needs to be packaged and these commits need to be cherry-picked: c489320, 3b8d283, 594618f.
  2. Bounce to QA to verify Harald's instructions work (by moving files around and manually overriding the variables).
  3. Get a .desktop file written very similar to Ubiquity's, and test it.
  4. Make some modifications to Ubiquity and debian-cd to support multiple installers when selecting the OEM config on startup. I talked with Adam and Steve about this at one point; I'll probably need to follow up with them.
  5. Bounce back to QA one more time to write some ISO QA tests and hit it with a large hammer and a blowtorch enough times to spot anything wrong with it.
