Software installation and configuration
Prior to getting started with image builder, the software must first be installed. The packages are both the image builder applications and a plugin for web console.
yum install -y cockpit-composer lorax-composer composer-cli
Now that the software is installed, restart the web console so that it picks up the newly installed plugin for image builder. Also, you will enable the service that manages the build queue and other aspects of image builder.
systemctl restart cockpit; systemctl enable --now lorax-composer.service
Lastly, in the next steps, you will use a non-administrative user, rhel, to manage the image blueprints and build machine images. This user must belong to the weldr group.
usermod -a -G weldr rhel
