Creating a Test Day Live Image

The following steps outline how to create a Fedora live image for use during test days.

  1. Install required packages:
    yum install spin-kickstarts livecd-tools
  2. Create a kickstart template, for example:
    cat <<EOF> fedora-livecd-testday.ks
     %include /usr/share/spin-kickstarts/fedora-livecd-desktop.ks
    repo --name jlaska --baseurl http://jlaska.fedorapeople.org/repos/testday
    repo --name awilliam --baseurl http://adamwill.fedorapeople.org/nouveau
     %packages
    gdb
    strace
    ltrace
    rendercheck
    libdrm
    -olpc-logos
     %end
    EOF
  3. Create the live image:
    livecd-creator -c fedora-livecd-testday.ks

Using the Live Image

Ideas For Improvement

  1. Create a .desktop file with a Test Day URL on the Desktop
