This page will show you how to build an ISO of Rawhide that you can use for testing.
Get Rawhide (optional)
If you don't have Rawhide available on a fast, local link, you may want to mirror it locally using
mkdir -P /var/www/fedora/linux/development/x86_64/os cd /var/www/fedora/linux/development/x86_64/os rsync -Pavy --delete-after <MIRROR_NEAR_YOU>::fedora-linux-development/x86_64/os .
Note that these commands assume you are interested in testing the
x86_64 (64-bit) architecture. Substitute
i386 as needed for 32-bit architecture.
Make a DVD image
- You can use the same tools that Fedora Release Engineering uses to make a DVD. First, install the
yum install pungi
- Change directory to an area with gobs of free space. Use the
df -hcommand to find a location if needed.
- Download the current kickstart file for Rawhide.
curl -o rawhide-fedora.ks http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/pungi.git?p=pungi.git;a=blob_plain;f=share/rawhide-fedora.ks;hb=HEAD
- Edit the
repocommands in the
rawhide-fedora.ksfile to point at your local mirror. If the mirror is on your hard disk as above, for example, use this command in the kickstart file:
repo --name=rawhide --baseurl=file:///var/www/fedora/linux/development/$basearch/os</li> <li>Make the DVD image: <pre>pungi --nosource --nosplitmedia --nodebuginfo --all-stages -c rawhide-fedora.ks
