View Full Version : Fedora Based Distro

7th May 2004, 03:19 PM
I am going to be heading a project (which will soon be hosted on SourceForge) to create a new distribution. We have decided to base our distribution on Fedora. I have done Linux From Scratch and found it to be a joke. We want to base our distro on Fedora.

I need information on how to take your source code and modify it to our needs. Is it as simple (you know what I mean by simple) as taking the Fedora source rpms and extracting the source, editing it, and creating new rpms from the edited source? Then after that is done, is there a product for Anaconda that would allow us to tell it what packages to offer for installation?

Please help me with some general information. I will not be the only person working on this. We will have a team of programmers.

why not just getting the code from here http://cvs.fedora.us/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/ ? (I hope this link is the right one)
And here one other Fedora based Distro http://linux.lorma.edu/ . Have fun with your project.
