Rather than having the entire operating system here, we just use kickstarts with livecd-creator to make livecds.

<a href="http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD/LiveCDHowTo">This</a> is a guide on how it works.

<a href="http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Kickstart">Here is a guide to kickstarts:</a>

<h2>Creating a live image from a kickstart</h2>

A Fedora installation (Either on disk or in a virtual machine)
livecd-tools
Basic knowledge of using the Linux command-line
A recent version of the kickstarts (see leaves, click the topmost ID#, and then download it as a zip)

First, open up a terminal and become root.

	$ su

Then, install livecd-tools.

	# yum install livecd-tools

Now set SELinux to permissive.

	# setenforce 0

Change to the directory that you’ve downloaded this archive to, and then change to the “anonos” directory.

	# cd anonos

Make a cache directory (/var/cache/live writes to RAM and swap, so the space will be used up quick.)

	# mkdir cache

Copy and paste one of the below to start making your chosen liveCD.
Make sure you have enough space for twice the liveCD’s size. (usually 2GBs)

For Annonaceae:

livecd-creator \
--config=annonaceae.ks \
--fslabel=Annonaceae V.0.0.6 --cache=cache

For Cherimoya:

livecd-creator \
--config=cherimoya.ks \
--fslabel=Cherimoya V.0.0.6 --cache=cache

Once you are done, free up space by deleting ~/cache.
	# rm -r cache
