Just give this one a test run. Worked out fine. Bootup and application
startup speeds were pretty low.
Yes. It's starting all sorts of unneeded services too.
Perhaps the prelinker would speed this up (?).
. Ran into a couple of minor bugs with
initscript trying to relabel the filesystem and running fonts cache both
of which failed due to the storage being read only. I didnt like the
theme or the icon set but thats a subjective taste
Ya, there are a number of things on boot and during running that need
fixing. This was definitely a "quickie".
A comprehensive set of differences in the packages and other
customisations you have made would very useful.
Most packages are either FC, FC-extras, or RPMforge. If they are custom
blag ones, they have "blag" in the name (e.g.
initscripts-8.11.1-1blag.fc4.i386.rpm). The SRPMS for all packages are
available on our ftp site. Note, most of the changes I made are very
I would also like to
know about your previous Live CD efforts and experiences
Years ago I did a very small live CD for wireless routers. Definitely an
"in-house" project though. I spent a small amount of time looking at
options for making FC-based livecds, but I put the project off until
kadischi came along and solved it for me. :)
I should also note that I have been working on BLAG, a FC/RH-based
distro, since RH7.3 (and using RH itself since the beginning).
and if you see
an oppurtunity for colloboration. For example, code improvements or
features the tool and Live CD could use. Just throwing out an idea
I'll definitely forward ideas and fixes I come across to this list or
'zilla. If you check the archives I've sent a few already.
I also did another "brainstorm" LiveCD that I haven't made public--I
just wanted to test out the idea.
Basically, the minimal live cd (220 megs currently) boots up and just
starts X and metacity. It then connects via NX (or VNC) to a remote box
which presents a GDM login screen. The user logs in and does whatever
they want to do--but the whole session is running on a remote machine.
Using NX, it's quite fast and is usable with VNC.
I plan to refine this LiveCD (called BLAGSQUAT) so people without
computers have a "permanent" desktop and place to store their files.
They can go from cafe to cafe, boot up the live CD, login, and all their
files/bookmarks/etc are there. :)
