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've been trying to get the Fedora 10 Snapshot ISO to work boot via a USB key
on my MacBook Pro using the --mactel option, and while I think GRUB's EFI
image has a bug in it since no kernels boot , it gave me another idea.
I thought it would be pretty cool if we could synchronize the GPT and
MSDOS partition tables (complete with MBR), similar to how it's used in
BootCamp/rEFIt so that any given live media could be used with EFI or with
BIOS. I've packaged rEFIt  (which includes gptsync) but since there's
only one partition on the Live USB media, gptsync immediately says "nothing
to do" and exits. One way around this would be to use two-partitions on the
live media, but that would troublesome since Windows will only recognize the
first readable partition. The other way would be to patch gptsync and have
it translate the EFI partition to "FAT32" for the MSDOS partition table.
I'd like to hear your comments/feedback on this - Do you think it's a
feature worth spending time on? Any other ideas for workarounds?
I would like to create a usb device that contains several live mediums.
Afaics, this is currently not possible, unless I use a separate partition for
each live medium, because they all expect LiveOS to be the directory
containing some images. Attached is a patch agains mkliveinitrd from the
current rawhide cvs repository that makes it possible to pass a "live_dir"
kernel parameter, that is then used instead of LiveOS.
How do you like this patch and do I have to submit it via bugzilla to the
mkinitrd component to get it included? Do you know other places on the live
medium that use a hardcoded LiveOS directory?
There are some issues in Fedora 9 when using a bootable USB stick with a persistent overlay (created using livecd-iso-to-disk). Filling up the overlay renders the USB stick non-bootable. Whatever the reason for this, has the issue been resolved in Fedora 10?
Also, once desired changes have been made to files on the USB, using the persistent overlay, is there a way (in Fedora 9 or 10) to disable further writes to the overlay, basically "freezing" it so that no further permanent changes can be made?
Thanks in advance for any input.
I tried reinstall livecd-tools, download again the cache necessary and
generate using olds kickstarts. But I have this error always, someone can

After booting my F10 usb stick with persistent storage I accumulate a
bunch of persistent-net usb rules and have network device names like
"eth0_rename". Any way to avoid.
