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)
  • livecd-tools
  • Basic knowledge of using the Linux command-line
  • A recent version of the kickstarts (like this)

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
