Fedora Unity releases Fedora Core 5 Live-Spin ISO images.
Official Fedora Live images are something we all have been looking
forward to seeing in the Fedora Community. Kadischi will be the tool to
create such live images. Fedora Unity has recently joined forces with
Kadischi to help provide testing and to release live images which we are
The Fedora Unity Project is proud to announce the release of a new
Live-Spin CD and DVD ISO image of Fedora Core 5. These Live-Spin ISOs
are based on Fedora Core 5 and all updates released as of August 21st,
2006. They are available for the i386 architecture via BitTorrent
starting Monday, August 28th, 2006 via BitTorrent.
The Fedora Core 5 CD image features a 2.6.17-1.2174_FC5 kernel and GNOME
2.14.1, along with applications such as xchat, gftp, OpenOffice.org
2.0.3, and other utilities. The DVD image includes roughly "everything
but the kitchen sink."
Also available at this time are "pristine" FC6T2 Live ISO images from
the initial FC6T2 release.
The Fedora Unity Project was created by concerned peers in the Fedora
Community to bring quality solutions to the Community. Project members
want to see the best solutions find their way into the hands of the
Community. Members include site maintainers, Fedora Project contributors
and interested users.
Fedora Unity has taken up the Live-Spin task to provide the Community
with the chance to test Fedora Core with recent updates in a Live Media
environment. This is a Community project, for the Community and by the
Community. You can contribute to the Community by seeding the torrent
after your download has completed or by joining the test process.
The Fedora Unity Project intends to release early and release often. New
Live-Spins are provided early each month during the life of each Fedora
Core release until that release is transferred to Fedora Legacy. Early
snapshots are taken mid-month to start testing. Final snapshots will be
taken about a week before the release. All released ISO images are
tested to ensure the quality that the Fedora community expects. If you
are interested in helping with the testing or seeding efforts, please
contact the Fedora Unity team. Contact information is available at
