TOPIC: Image build systems: kiwi (@tdawson:fedora.im, 19:06:05)
We are able to make images.[1]  They boot and install, but you cannot boot
into the newly installed image.

Investigation has shown that dracut is getting errors when trying to create
the initramfs.
dracut: dracut module 'livenet' depends on 'dmsquash-live', which can't be
dracut: dracut module 'dmsquash-live' cannot be found or installed.
And yes, dmsquash-live is installed.
If you want to get around this.  After the install is done, but before you
click on the button that closes anaconda, open a terminal on the live cd.
Become root and then
chroot /mnt/sysroot
dracut --regenerate-all --no-hostonly --force

If you are a dracut expert, any help would be appreciated.
