My ks scripts have the timezone set to PDT (America/Los_Angeles).
Installation to a hard drive works as expected. PDT in startup and in
Creating a livecd-creator iso with the same tz setting, then booting,
shows A/L_A in the /etc/sysconfig/clock file, as expected.
However the date is always EDT in the boot messages, shells, etc.
During startup I see :

I'm not clear on what is happening between lvm and udev in the Linux
If someone could give me a hint about what to look for and where to look
for it I would appreciate the help.
I'm making a LiveCD that I want to autorun (from Windows and Linux) to
open a browser showing some help about how it works. So I added a new
option that lets add to the CD root file system.
If someone finds it useful, the attached patch adds this option to
pilgrim. The patch is for the latest git version.
I was able to create a CentOS 5 Live CD with livecd-tools 009. However,
before launching the livecd-creator, I had to increase the maximum
number of open files:
# ulimit -n 65535
I added a script in the kickstart configuration file to automatically
mount hard drive and logical volume partitions via
/etc/rc.d/init.d/centos-live. If anyone is interested, I could post the
I would like to thank the livecd-tools coders for such a powerfull tool.

So I have been seeing the 'No Repositories Available' message also, but I
only seem to have the problems when using livecd-creator. Revisor seems to

This is my first email to the list and I am inquiring to see if anyone has
experience setting up a FC6 or F7 live cd that automatically boots to the
xen hypervisor. If you have done so, what did you use to create it and if
you have documented the steps, in particular the ability to possibly
create a livecd that boots to the xen hypervisor and the ability to run a
couple of guest OS's (domU's) while the live cd is running.
I have tried revisor on F7 but can't set up a xen configuration. I have
gone back to FC6 and now have kadischi, pungi, and livecd-tools.
Of particular interest is a xen comps.xml file...
Thanks in advance.
I installed to my HD, using Fedora 7 LiveCD. Upon system startup, the
Grub, OS selection screen appears. But requires that I hit Enter to
boot. It should timeout after 5 seconds and automatically boot. There
is no other OS loaded on this HD. I tried reloading completely, and
selected the option, not to use a bootloader. But when I tried to boot,
I was greeted with a blinking Grub prompt, which simply hung. So I
installed again, selecting Grub, and must still use manual intervention
to boot to the OS.
I never had this problem with lilo. And have read the Grub docs, but
really think, I'm not doing anything wrong.
Any ideas, appreciated.

I am working on generating a live CD for a systemtap tutorial. The current
livecd has all that is needed to run systemtap on the livecd. We would like to
include the systemtap tutorial materials on the CD, e.g. examples and the
slides. I was thinking of having an rpm and just installing that as a part of
the %post in kickstart file. Have the following line in the %post of the .ks
file used by the livecd-creator:
I have checked and the rpm is available and I can install it from a commandline
on other linux machine. Is there a simple way install a local RPM onto a liveCD?
Or is creating a yum repository the only way to do this?
I have built an FC 7 LiveCD on a FC7 system with a kickstart file that
was modified from the original. Upon booting, I get a large amount of
Ata2.00 exceptions and an error message that it cannot find the root
file system. Afterwards, I get a message about creating a symlink for
Should I be concerned about the error message about not finding usbhd ?
I am trying to build a console-based LAMP server for the LiveCD.
The kickstart file is below.

I am trying to run the Fedora 7 Live CD (and will install later) on
my old Compaq Presario 800 notebook (which has a P-III 500 CPU). When
I try to put the disc on the cdrom and startup, hey, the error shows:
cpufreq: change failed with new_state 1 and result 2
I have added acpi=off in the boot parameter.. What else I can do to
make my notebook work on F7? Thanks!!
