Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"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."
