Fedora Live CD

The Fedora project has recently announced the availability of a Fedora Live CD.
I have always liked the concept of LiveCD, so I decided to contribute Smiling
I made two distinct changes/improvements :
- use the KDE desktop manager instead of Gnome
- port the LiveCD to the x86_64 architecture.

I also installed a yum repository here.

In order to generate a Fedora LiveCD, with the KDE desktop mananger for the x86_64 architecture, you need to install the livecd-tools package on a system running fedora for x86_64, and then simply run the following command :

livecd-creator \ 
    --repo=c6,http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/6/x86_64/os/ \
    --repo=c6_upd,http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/core/updates/6/x86_64/ \
    --repo=lcd6,http://gillesgouaillardet.com/lcd6 \
    --repo=e6,http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/6/x86_64/ \
    --package=fedora-livecd-kde \

This will create Fedora-6-Zod-LiveCD-2-kde.iso, which is a bootable iso image,
so simply burn it to a CD, reboot and enjoy !

/* Of course, you can use your own ( and local ) yum repositories ! */

I just checked the fedora-livecd mailing list before i submit my contribution ... and i just found out someone posted a similar thing a few minutes ago ...
Anyway, this was interesting homework Eye
