Revisor

Anyone play with Revisor yet? I am trying to create a basic XFCE respin at the moment but keep screwing things up I keep getting closer though. Anyone else play with this yet? Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts.

Well I was toying with the idea of giving this a spin

http://forums.fedoraforum.org/forum/...0&postcount=11

What do you think

I could call it "Fedora 7 - Complete"

I tried to, but it keeps complaining that it doesn't have a connection.

Looks pretty sweet, I was going to make a "dirty" Fedora to give out to people but I guess I'll have to wait till I can figure out what's wrong with it.

Thanks, that makes me feel better... ...

Yeah I know it works fine for others, not sure what's up or why it refuses to work for me, I installed it as soon as I got F7 and updated it but it still won't connect.

I was really looking forward to it so it just pissed me off when it wouldn't work, I haven't really bothered trying to figure out why.

cool Leigh, looks like you are further than I am. I have downloaded a couple iso's so far but havent burned anything yet. I am working on one now I will try to burn and boot. I can see I am going to need to play some though.

I would like to generate a kickstart file of my install , but system-config-kickstart will be very useful with revisor

system-config-kickstart

I have just completed my first XFCE based live DVD it went quite smoothly apart from the default kernel choice ( i586 )
I included the nvidia driver but this was easy to fix after booting the live DVD and replacing the kmod-nvidia with the i686 version , once this was done I could enable beryl on XFCE.
This is a dirty version with all the nonfree bits apart from jre ( but I am working on including jre as well )

I was just going to put all the "dirty" bits in an /opt folder then use the post-install part of the kickstart to copy the folder and any files over and set up any symbolic links needed.

I don't know if that would work but don't see why it wouldn't.

I don't really quite see the advantage of a respin untill I need to download 400+ updated packages after each install

Seeing as most of peoples complaints center around the fact that getting multimedia and Java and other "non-free" stuff going, being able to hand someone a Fedora disc ( or even share a torrent ? ) that "just works" would probably get more people interested and willing to experiment on their own.

not to mention this gives me a real advantage in my pet project, which is a super fast booting rescue disc that has gparted, k3b, gedit and a few other sparse things. Maybe that ntfs for linux...what is it..."3" in there somewhere...anyway, something idiot proof, a little easier to use than gparted live yet not a knoppix either. Something you can boot up to edit files, rescue files, repartition...maybe even install a grub.

Perhaps you should enable keep in the /etc/revisor/conf.d/revisor-f7-i386.conf

There is a new version but the /etc/revisor/revisor.conf needs to be edited because it is set to rawhide just copy back the data from revisor.conf.rpmsave

The new version seems less buggy



dont remove the old version update instead as you need the .rpmsaves

PHP Code:
su -
wget http://files.revisor.fedoraunity.org/revisor-2.0.3.7-1.fc7.noarch.rpm
rpm ---force revisor-2.0.3.7-1.fc7.noarch.rpm 
It is also good to open revisor from a terminal so you can see all the progress
