The Makefile in /adk directory on the CD, allows you to create
the developement environment for ADIOS. You may want to add
some extra scripts to trim the number of languages down to 1
or 2 so that you can install more packages on a your
"rebuilder" CD. I use a Makefile to only support a few
langauges but this could be customised so that the user is
able to build a CD that only supports the languages that they
want. I suggest that this should really be part of the basic
Fedora Core install anyway as most people only know one or two
langauges at best.
I have only just downloaded Fedora Core 4, so work of ADIOS 5
is only just beginning. I am redesigning the image so that it
is less complicated. The linuxrc files in the initial ram
disk has grown into a monster, so a redesign has become
necessary. If you only want to use the unionfs solution then
the work should be straight forward, however I want to be able
to boot also without unionfs enabled so I am modifying the
filesystem via a Makefile and moving all read-write files into
the /var directory, which will be then copied to a RAM drive
and then mounted as /var. (Thus I have removed the need to
have a separate var.tgz file in the next version). I have
problems with the combination of unionfs, LIDS and UML so I do
need a non unionfs startup still to support virtual machines,
although I have started to lan with XEN. I am currently
thinking of not using LIDS, but using the selinux kernel and
supporting that on the boot CD as well.
I am also waiting on the 2.6.12 kernel to be released.

Are the scripts used for ADIOS liveCD available under the
GPL to the
public. I may have missed something, is there any chance I
source code ?
