I've been playing with livecd tools since f8 and I'm really enjoying all
the stuff that it allows me to do. I use it mostly to build custom live
cds, dvds and usb sticks. I just pick a stock kickstart file that comes
with fedora, add some repos, change locale/keyboard/timezone and
increase the list of packages. Works great! Great way to test rawhide
Recently, I built a kickstart file that creates a livecd that allows me
to use livecd tools. I can boot any machine with this livecd and start
building more images using livecd tools. Hint: If you are trying to use
network storage with livecd tools, forget smb/cifs shares, go for nfs.
My livecd-creator process was crashing hard when I used smb/cifs shares
for --cache and --tmpdir options in livecd-creator. When I switched to
nfs, everything worked ok.
I've also created a fedora account because I would like to contribute to
the livecd/dvd project. I've also uploaded the necessary ssh/pgp keys.
I never used git before, although I know what it is.
I joined this mailing list yesterday and I already saw something I would
like to do. Regarding the email about a Brazilian localized spin of
Fedora, I would like to do the same but for a Portuguese spin.
Can anyone give some initial tips to help me contribute?
Welcome to the club ;-) I'd love to see another localized spin as I'm
still missing a few hundred different languages ;-)
If you read the article
about what it is
we're trying to do, and how we try to make it as easy as possible to
make spins localized, maybe getting a Portuguese Spin of your liking
only takes a couple of minutes ;-) You can submit the result to me for a
little check-up and then I can submit it to the kickstart pool.
Let me know what you think and whether you need any help. Have fun!
