livemedia-creator is a new addition to the lorax project. Its goal is to
create live images using anaconda so that we have one place to maintain
the logic defining what an installed system should look like.
lorax-17.1 contains the first release which should be working well
enough for people to experiment with. See the README.livemedia-creator
for details and examples. The current version can be used to create
bootable disk images or to convert those images into a bootable .iso
Development disussion will be on the anaconda-devel-list, and bugs can
be filed against lorax. I'll either take them or you can assign them to

I was trying to build a fedora remix distro. I was doing everything alright
as per the official fedora tutorial from the wiki page. But I'm getting the
warning: filesystem-3-2.fc17.i686: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID
> 1aca3465: NOKEY
> Transaction couldn't start:
> installing package PackageKit-yum-plugin-0.7.4-4.fc17.i686 needs 73MB on
> the / filesystem
> installing package system-config-firewall-1.2.29-7.fc17.noarch needs 74MB
> on the / filesystem
At the end of a long list of rpms, it ends like this:
> installing package bridge-utils-1.5-3.fc17.i686 needs 508MB on the /
> Error creating Live CD : Unable to install: Could not run transaction.
As per Fedora trademarks, I removed all the fedora logos, release notes,
and replaced them with the generic equivalents.
However, this causes the word 'Generic' to appear in multiple places:
a) 'Generic 17' on the boot up screen
b) 'Generic Installer' in Anaconda
and there are probably a few more that I haven't noticed.
What is the recommended approach to replace all the references to 'Generic'
with my actual remix name
and what are all the files I need to update / override, etc?
I am trying to copy some default user settings from my local folder to the
/etc/skel folder on the live CD, e.g.:
*# set default user config*
*cp -r $PWD/config/.config $INSTALL_ROOT/etc/skel*
But it doesn't work...
*cp: cannot stat `/home/jacekf/src/remix/config/.config': No such file or
Is there some trick for bringing in custom files from your local filesystem
into the live CD?
I get this warning every time I build the iso:
*Need 'inst' function, try setting PLYMOUTH_POPULATE_SOURCE_FUNCTIONS to a
file that defines it*
Can't find any documentation on what this means and how could I change
/customize the default plymouth boot up process (e.g. color, background
image, animation, etc).
Would appreciate any pointers, thanks
