F17 Gnome 3 customisable spin

This is nothing fancy, a customisable live media with all the codecs, easy to create and install.

You need livecd-tools installed in order to create the image.

A modifiable kickstart file (f17.cfg) in your home directory:

It starts with a minimal Gnome desktop and can be extended with other packages from Fedora and RPMFusion repositories.

Create a folder in your home where all the packages will be downloaded:

$ mkdir -p ~/17/i686

As root:

# livecd-creator --config /home/user/f17.cfg --cache=/home/user/17/i686/ --fslabel=f17

Change 'user' with your user name.

Wait till the packages are downloaded and the image is created in your /root directory.

Then write the image on a DVD:

# growisofs -speed=8 -dvd-compat -Z /dev/sr0=f17.iso

Boot the image.
