Rather than having the entire operating system here, we just use kickstarts with livecd-creator to make livecds.
This is a guide on how it works.
If you would like to understand how they work, go to Kickstarts.
Creating a live image from a kickstart
- A Fedora installation (Either on disk or in a virtual machine)
- Basic knowledge of using the Linux command-line
- A recent version of the kickstarts (like this)
First, open up a terminal and become root.
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)
livecd-creator \ --config=annonaceae.ks \ --fslabel=Annonaceae V.0.0.6 --cache=cache
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
