New Features in Fedora 12 - IV

Creating your own spins
The same tools that the Fedora Project uses to build packages and create live CDs and installation CDs are themselves distributed with Fedora. That means that anyone can use those tools to create their own installation package sets, and then turn those package sets into their own repositories. Using those repositories, you could then create your own CD or DVD images to later install or run live.

The Pungi project (http://fedorahosted.org/pungi) was created for Fedora to build the Fedora system itself. The pungi package contains the pungi command and related configuration files. You can use the pungi command to fashion your own installation trees that result in installable ISO images.

The Fedora Live CD project (http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD) has produced tools for building your own live CDs from Fedora software repositories. The primary tool for creating those live CDs is called livecd-creator. Refer to the Live CD HOWTO
(http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD/LiveCDHowTo) for information on using livecd-creator.

A nice recent addition to livecd-creator for Fedora is that you can create kickstart files to direct the creation of live CDs. This means that the same format you use to automate installs with anaconda can be used to save the package list and other settings you use to create your live CDs.
