Fedora Update Notification
2010-08-30 17:44:04

Name        : febootstrap
Product     : Fedora 13
Version     : 2.9
Release     : 1.fc13
URL         : http://et.redhat.com/~rjones/febootstrap/
Summary     : Bootstrap a new Fedora system (like debootstrap)
Description :
febootstrap is a Fedora equivalent to Debian's debootstrap.  You can
use it to create a basic Fedora filesystem, and build initramfs
(initrd.img) or filesystem images.

febootstrap also includes a separate tool to minimize filesystems by
removing unneeded locales, documentation etc.

The main difference from other appliance building tools is that this
one doesn't need to be run as root.
