actually, linux-live.org is supposed to work on any distro:

Quote:
Linux Live is a set of bash scripts which allows you to create own LiveCD from every Linux distribution. Just install your favourite distro, remove all unnecessary files and then download and run these scripts.
anyways, you might want to read this article also, it'll give you a glimpse of the challenges ahead of you if you decide to make yor own build scripts:

i have gone through the documentation of the site www.linux-live.org, there they specified that ovlfs doesn't support for kernel-2.6 series. shall i go with it.

yes, i know... my point was that if you didn't have any specific technical needs for 2.6 then you have the OPTION of using the perfectly good 2.4 for the live cd, so that you could at least give linux-live.org a try...

i can also understand if you have some psychological reason for not wanting to have anything but 2.6 on the cd...

=)



anyways, did you read the linux journal article i linked?? what did you think??

another thing you could do is search for some good fedora-based live cd distros and then study their build methods...

here's one example i found:

http://www.linux4all.de/livecd/basilisk/1.3/


i can also give you some googles that will provide useful material:

well, linux-live.org is now designed for linux 2.6.x last time i looked...

but here's a nice howto i found for making a live cd almost from scratch:

Hi,

@win32sux

Thanks! Just the thing I've been thinking of lately and the 'from scratch' method only makes it more worthwhile.

Should feel great to answer a question that has not been asked yet

you're very welcome!!!

yeah, when i ran into the link to that howto on this article on distrowatch.com i was very happy... i'd been looking for a howto like that for a long time! here's proof:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...hreadid=220971

i agree with you, i think it's so much more worthwhile to actually read instructions and learn how to do this from the bottom up (making our own scripts) than it is to download someone else's magic scripts and patched kernels, etc... hehe...

of course distro build kits are nice and they do serve a purpose, but i'm not really a big fan of the methods linux-live.org uses for making live cds... if you want a distro build kit to play with on the side while you hack on your own live cd from scratch take a look at T2:

http://www.t2-project.org/

have fun!!!
