&gt; Aww... come on... I wanna vote somebody off the island.<br>&gt;<br>&gt; Anyhow I think the minimal and the installer cd are the way to go.<br>&gt; Perhaps if you just also release the source files you use to build the
<br>&gt; iso (I don't know what this would be, perhaps the catalyst file?) then<br>&gt; people who desperately want to put together a KDE livecd or something<br>&gt; like that could do it themselves.<br><br>Currently, much of the ISO generation is done manually.&nbsp;&nbsp;As for what is
<br>done upto livecd-stage1, I have actually said many times how to<br>accomplish this.&nbsp;&nbsp;Take every package from the published &quot;packagecd.spec&quot;<br>for x86, add them to the end of &quot;livecd-stage1.spec&quot; and you're done.
<br><br>To use my spec files, you would need my hand-hacked copy of catalyst,<br>which is currently useless on anything but my machine, since it has tons<br>of hard-coded information (distcc hosts, paths, etc) that I have no
<br>plans on sanitizing just to release, considering it is a modification<br>from catalyst <a href="http://1.1.10.10">1.1.10.10</a>, and the catalyst 1.x line has reached EOL as we<br>are moving all development to catalyst 
2.0, which will be capable of<br>building a LiveCD similar to mine.&nbsp;&nbsp;At that time, I'll release specs<br>designed for catalyst 2.0 for public consumption.<br><br></blockquote></div><br>Great... thats all I was curious about. I'm perfectly happy to let you make the CDs. Thanks for the answer Chris.
