Default Current Respin for F9, or how to build updated F9 live dvd on an F7 system?

I have access to F7 systems where I can download the F9 install dvd.
While doing that, I was wondering if it is possible to get a version
of the dvd that includes the updated RPMS. That search leads to the
Fedora Unity community (http://fedorasolved.org) web site, where it
appears there has not been a respin of F9 (only a spin of Everything
as originally created).

Pointers from messages in this list lead to a HOWTO on using the tools
in the livecd-tools package to create a new Fedora dvd.

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FedoraLiveCD/LiveCDHowTo

As far as I can tell, the approach there seems to require me to
install F9, and then use the livecd-tools config file it provides to
build a new DVD. I installed livecd-tools in the F7 systems, but the
config file it provides is designed to get F7 package updates. I mean
this command:

livecd-creator
--config=/usr/share/livecd-tools/livecd-fedora-desktop.ks
--fslabel=Fedora-7-LiveCD-1-foo

does not produce an F9 dvd.

I see now the fastest thing to do is install F9, run yum update, and
forget about making the updated F9 dvd. But the curiosity within me
is too great to stop without asking.

Please be more explicit. What are you referring to exactly? I said
in my original post there is no Fedora 9 respin available on the
Fedora Unity site. There are F8 respins from May and there is only
"Fedora 9 (Everything).".

If I understand correctly Paul is looking for how to make his own respin,
because he is tired of waiting for A) his fresh installs to pull the huge
update set every time, and B) for the unity folks to make an _updated_ spin of F9.
Perhaps you would work with Bill Cody a bit to update the RedHat-CD-HOWTO[1],
or a new bit of documentation up on fedoraunity[3], using info pointed to by
one of my emails the other day[2].


Of course the alternative would include having a USB hard drive with a mirror
of fedora/linux/updates/9/<arch> on it, but that means you still have to
install the old package and then wait while the system figures out how to
update to the new package.

passing along 'respin' url's that you could check if you have not
already.

many who post on this and other tech list do not bother to mention
where all they have looked, and you posted only one.

i do not recall which one, or link from, as under 'q&a' or 'faq', that i
did see info.

i also recall that sites have a 'search', which you could try.

if it is too much for you to check sites or there was nothing to jump
out and say 'here i am', my apologies for straining you eyes.

one thing i know for sure from your post where you stated;

++++
livecd-creator
--config=/usr/share/livecd-tools/livecd-fedora-desktop.ks
--fslabel=Fedora-7-LiveCD-1-foo

does not produce an F9 dvd.
++++

using '--fslabel=Fedora-7-LiveCD-1-foo' most definitely will not
produce an f9.

which tends to indicate that you have some lack in understanding of
what you are trying to.

among sites that i sent, there are instructions.

also, 'tnwesttex' post may well be what you are wanting.

my apologies for bothering you.

go luck with your venture...
