Could somebody post a working


I need to make a basic custom live spin of fedora 12 86_64 desperately.

Fedora 12 64bit breaks every-time on my AMD 11 2.8 Gz even though i installed it before. Is there a limit to the size the root partition can be? I deleted my installation in order to make a larger root partition and now my pc is out of action for reasons unknown to me.

The revisor-f12-x86_64.conf is giving the following error:

Fatal Error: Unable to retrieve software information.
This could be caused by one of the following:
- not having a network connection available,
- Server refusing connections,
- Using a mirror that isn't fully synchronized,
- Misconfigured repositories.

That's almost always the anaconda updates. That site is almost always unavailable. Just change:

name=Fedora Unity Anaconda Updates for Fedora 12

Thanks macemonta. I discovered that last night. What's the best kickstart file to use. I used the rpmfusion-free-livecd-desktop.ks. Revisor hangs at the configuration process (after the package installation). All i want is an up to date basic gnome live cd x86_64.

I switched selinux into permissive mode:

echo 0 >/selinux/enforce

Maybe the kick start file is a problem?

I just use a package manifest in the kickstart. I wrote a step-by-step here (http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=236679), that has examples of a simple manifest, or duplicating the software on an installed system.
