Name : Anirudh singh shekhawat
Location : Jaipur
Expected Count : 6 requests a month
But i'd like to say here is that even i havent received the F-10 media
and i've to distribute the F-9 as i dont have the F-10.
thanking in anticipation
I have also worked on creating Fedora 8 and 9 local language distribution
using kickstart files.I used them with Fedora DVD only, cause i was told
that we don't have option of installing system using liveCD(pardon me if i
am wrong,will try to confirm it on my personal account asap), and i was
targeting installable media. I posted here earlier too related to problems i
faced with kickstrat files and other things. But in the end i was successful
in providing minimal features which were installed by default.
I was targetting all the Indian languages available irrespective of there
effort and percentage of translation.(Hindi, bengali, assamese, tamil,
telgu, oriya, punjabi, malyalam, gujrati, marathi)
Here is the list of packages i was targeting:
- Gnome desktop environment.
- scim with local language support(.
Please don't take this list of packages as point of discussion, it was just
my personal prefrence. So in case we can install using liveCD, and can have
these packages in CD, i would be happy to volunteer for helping you out. As
far as customization is concerned, i have used revisor, and am comfortable
with kickstart files. I have never tried to create LiveCD's. Else will try
to fit kickstart file in normal DVD's only and let you know of final status.
In case you have some plan or suggestion's let me know.
I am also available with nick 'baali' on #fedora-india channel.
To facilitate event planning and participation, here is a list of a few

MEC is a FOSS Savvy college which runs completely under GNU/Linux OS and
FOSS Tools. We run all our severs on LAMP. We are also running an
Electronics LAB purely on Fedora.
It would be great if some Fedora Ambassador could come to our college and
deliver a talk.

The approximate requests are about 6-10 per month.
I have been working a few days on this, though this was finished a few
This is working nicely as far as I have tested, can you please suggest
The concept is also there.
Basically the concept is you can have a whole fedora repo at an external HDD.
You can just plug it into any machine of a LAN and run the script to
have a working repo online (inside the LAN).
So if you have a external drive (you will get the contents of the HDD
online), please test it out.
Just follow the instructions and after that open
http://localhost/fedora to have the repository.
The script is here
