    make Fedora Livecd with own kernel

    Hallo,
    what must I do to generate a livecd with my own kernel?
    I think I must generate an rpm, make a lokal repository, patch the .ks script.
    But how can I use my rpm and not the fedora one?

    I am on the right way?

    Re: make Fedora Livecd with own kernel

    Create a dnf repo in the kernel/x86_64 directory

    $ cd ./x86_64

    $ createrepo .

    Get the dependencies to build the Fedora LiveCD

    # dnf install livecd-tools spin-kickstarts

    Copy the example kickstart files to a convenient location

    $ cp /usr/share/spin-kickstarts/* .

    Modify fedora-live-base.ks to use the compiled kernel in ./x86_64/

    kernel-$version.fc27.x86_64
    kernel-core-$version.fc27.x86_64
    kernel-modules-$version.fc27.x86_64
    kernel-modules-extra-$version.fc27.x86_64

    Create a local.ks file and add our kernel repository information to it

    repo --name=newkernel --baseurl=file:///path/to/kernel/x86_64
    %packages
    kernel-$version.fc27.x86_64
    kernel-core-$version.fc27.x86_64
    kernel-modules-$version.fc27.x86_64
    kernel-modules-extra-$version.fc27.x86_64
    %end

    Modify fedora-live-workstation.ks to include the repository kickstart file

    %include local.ks

    Build LiveCD

    # livecd-creator --config=fedora-live-workstation.ks --fslabel=Fedora-RAID --cache=/var/cache/live
