I want to create a custom live distribution of Fedora. I am using Fedora 19 live CD on VirtualBox on Windows (64bit Macbook Pro) to do this. I have tried following on Fedora 19 32 bit, Fedora 19 64 bit and Fedora 18 64 bit with same result:
Revisor (Create Your Own Fedora Distribution with Revisor) - this freezes on "Loading Repositories". I have also tried using the following command and it got stuck in loading repositories at 18%:
revisor --cli --config=/etc/revisor/revisor.conf --model=f19-x86_64 \ --kickstart=/livecd/fedora-live-base.ks --respin \ --live-usb-thumb --live-shell
livecd-creator - I used the following command and it just froze (I kept it running for half an hour but nothing happened)
livecd-creator --config=/root/fedora-live-base.ks --fslabel=Fedora-LiveCD --cache=/var/cache/live
mock (How to create a Fedora install ISO for testing) also freezes on "Start: yum update"
I have checked my internet connection and that is working fine. Can anyone please suggest any solutions or alternatives to this?
Update: I tried the command livecd-creator on Fedora 19 32-bit as follows:
livecd-creator --verbose --config =/livecd/fedora-live-desktop.ks --fslabel=Fedora-LiveCD --cache=/var/cache/live
I can see it is retrieving many packages but randomly (I tried 5 times) gets stuck at one of the packages like gnome-* (like gnome-calculator, gnome-keyring, etc.)
Any idea what is happening???
