Tutorial: Build Your Own Linux Distro

"1. Install Fedora

"The Revisor tool has been a part of the Fedora distribution for the last few releases. This means you can use any of these versions to create your own Linux distribution, although we'd recommend using the latest – Fedora 10. Installation is very straightforward, and shouldn't be a problem if you've installed any other version of Linux from the last two years.

"After installing the operating system, the only other prerequisite is the Revisor application itself. This can be installed by clicking on the Administration menu, selecting 'Add/Remove software' and searching for a package called revisor. Click ‘Apply’ and accept the additional packages that need to be installed.

"However, there is one step that is vital to success, and that's updating Fedora to include the very latest patches. You can do this using the Update tool in the Administration menu. This is required because the version of Revisor that was bundled with Fedora 10 was broken, and this won't create a workable Live CD. You need to either use an older version, or update your 10 installation to use the fixed version of Revisor."
