I am trying to build a custom live cd from a Fedora 14 or CentOS 6 install. I have tried the process found on the Fedora Wiki. It's basically using the livecd-tools program and then using some kick start scripts to customize it. However each time I've done this, the ISO didn't work. The first time I got the following error:

/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit: line 405: /sbin/fsck: Input/output error

*An error occurred during the file system check. * Dropping you to a shell; the system will reboot when you leave the shell.

This was with Fedora. The second time I did it with CentOS, it hung on the CentOS blue screen after clicking on the "Boot" option.

I've also tried the clonesys program and everytime I use that I get an error about not being about to mound the cdrom.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Have you tried Revisor? It's a GUI for creating Fedora live media.

You can install it from the official Fedora repostiory:

sudo yum install revisor

I've read about it but haven't tried it yet. My only concern with Revisor is, from what I read it makes a new ISO image out of the packages you pick. While that is good, I also want it to mimic my desktop settings, icons, etc. I want it just like my current running setup. – Eric Dec 1 '11 at 14:44
@Eric: Revisor also supports configuring custom options via kickstart. – Patches Dec 5 '11 at 10:27
