This covers the third part of my experiences of descending down the rabbit hole of exploring the nifty tool for generating bespoke operating system images called mkosi. In this part, I will boot the generated image as a virtual machine using the QEMU/KVM hypervisor and helpers like virt-install.
This covers the second part of my experiences of descending down the rabbit hole of exploring the nifty tool for generating bespoke operating system images called mkosi. In this part, I will boot the generated image as a container using systemd-nspawn and its wrappers like mkosi and machinectl.

With the last activity done at the Fedora Mentor Summit and the closing note delivered by the Fedora Project Leader and Fedora Community Architect, the conference came to an end. The attendees freshened up and headed out to the city to see what the Cork City Ghost Tour had to offer in the evening.
With a great collection of interactive workshops to participate in, I continued with my assignment of moderating the Fedora Mentor Summit 2023 events while participating as an attendee in the wonderful community bonding discussions organized by the community's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team.
While the third day of the Flock To Fedora 2023 was less busy as compared to the previous days, that did not mean that it lacked interesting events to participate in. People joined the second iteration of the Fedora Mentor Summit with other workshops, hackfests and discussions throughout the day.
Continuing the tradition of keeping the entertainment for the evening, the attendees of the conference were let loose in the city with a tablet device per group, some map waypoints to track, some difficult questions to answer, some interesting activities to perform and a lot of excitement to be had
The attendees readied up before they headed off to participate in the CentOS Project-sponsored community dinner at Tequila Jack's and the scavenger hunt event in Cork City. Our team "Open Sauce" participated alongside numerous other teams to explore the city doing fun activities and making memories.
Once the loud-sounding fire alarm puts a halt to the engrossing discussions at the event, it was time for yet another social break - although a bit earlier than whenever it was scheduled. After some conversations and selfies, it was time for a panel discussion involving community representatives
After rushing late to the Harbour 6 room and moderating a couple more talks there, my assigned responsibilities were done for the day. To my pleasant surprise, a good friend Mark O'Brien dropped by to meet up and after a fun little chat over lunch, it was time to head over to the next presentation.
After an unsuccessful lookup for the lost checked-in luggage, I started the second day of Flock To Fedora 2023 with a discussion about Raspberry Pis and Flipper Zeros over breakfast. I also participated in the keynote talk about DEIJ principles before moderating the Harbour 6 room with Carl George.
We kept the best event for later to end the first day of the conference with a metaphorical blast. Fedora Pub Quiz made an appearance again with a bunch of twists to both the gameform as well as the questions and I cannot recall the last time I had experienced so much fun at a community event before
