Persistent Layer..not so much persistent

hi all

I tried a bunch of live fedora's installations, both i386 and x86_64 but no one of them is really able to mantain modifies when they're "structural" (the easiest example is a kernel upgrade), resulting in a deep lack of flexibility. So, is there a way to force those kind of alterations without actually installing the distribution?

I think this should be an interesting way of distributing fedora...

Hi, its something i have tried several times, and has always ended in failure, it just cant take a kernel update, i have been working on live respins today, so if you want the latest spin as of 4pm gmt today i can give you a link to it, wether the kernel can be upgraded or not, i wont find out till theres another kernel update but i doubt it.

oh, this is interesting
currently I am at work, and will come back home tomorow, so drop me the link and once at home I will download the respin and test it

If fedora 10 x86_64 had XMMS, VLC.and flash preinstalled I would've used it.... otherwise I will stick with F9 'till the three will be fully supported/yummable (yum available) :P

to create the USB pendrive installation, I use fedora liveusb creator...

Ok ill send you a pm with the link later, i have to upload it yet, although i am currently running off a dirty live dvd ( too big for cd) if you dont mind waiting, it has flash and vlc but not xmms (no games), i guess i could run another off with xmms possibly, you will have to let me know.

that's great!!!!
I can install XMMS by myself, but I think that a good mp3 player can be a much loved default goodie

in exchange, I offer you free graphics: do you need banners or similar to publicize that spin?

I dont usually share my respins, i only make them because it makes installing quicker etc... and fun to do. but thanks anyway, feel free to do whatever you like with them though.
