Heh, rock a roll
I'm looking into (still in the looking into stage) making an install/Live CD. I understand that Rock is a distribution building kit, so I'm wondering how well it works for creating LiveCD's as well. I will be building a Gentoo distro on it, would I be better off looking at the Gentoo live CD and modifying it for my needs?
Here's the problems I'm seeing if I choose to use the Gentoo CD:
Gentoo doesn't install like other distros, it's all done by the user, not much automation.
Here's what I'd like to do, maybe you can tell me if Rock is the way to go with it:
Do a Gentoo install, install the extra packages I want (Mplayer, Xorg, etc..) configure the kernel appropriately, and throw that on a disc (DVD probably). Then I'd like to be able to build multiple identical systems, put the DVD in each one, and have a boot choice of "linux install" versus the default of using the disc as a LiveCD. Something I guess more like Knoppix, but not Debian based.
I'd also need to be able to remaster the Disc for updates, throw in the 'updated' disc, type something like "linux update" at the boot prompt, and have the updates performed without much (any?) user interaction.
