A two-part screencast. The first part has some slides at the beginning of it that explains the process of how to build a LiveDVD remix of Fedora 10 and then includes a live demo of the build process. The second video shows booting the LiveDVD media that was built in part one and some of the features present in the remix.

Why would you want to make a remix? Two common reasons:

1) You want updated install media that has all of the updates already applied. Given the fact that Fedora has a lot of package churn and a constant stream of security fixes, bug fixes and feature enhancement updates, their install media gets out of date pretty quickly. That is especially the case if you want to use an .iso image of the LiveCD media to make a LiveUSB out of.

2) You want more software included on the Live media than Fedora provides. The Fedora folks usually fill up a single CD but how about a LiveDVD with multiple desktop environments, window managers, application software, and multimedia apps that Fedora won't include in the distro? That's what I make during the screencast... a custom LiveDVD with all of the updates applied and all of the additional software I want in a LiveDVD with a painless, quick install to hard drive if desired.
