For your info. Note that I have a number of virtual machines set up at
home so I can use them for testing and such when I get back into the
swing of things.

I have a web server that I use as a kickstart server for automating Xen
server builds. So if you want to know about kickstart, do ask.

Will look at tearms.dydns.org this afternoon.

I am glad that you're doing well. I have not had the time to work on
BLAG in the past month, but yesterday, I begin working on the livecd
again. I created a few last month but lost the kickstart file that I was
using, so I am just starting from scratch, so that I write the
documentation this time around for it. I'm documenting my progress on
the main tearms.dyndns.org site for now and I will post the iso there
for the main developers and contributors to test before it is put on the
main site blag site. I opened an account on Fedora, so that I could
properly setup a mirror on tearms and the main things I am trying to
understand after removing the Fedora branding is:

How do we create a package group for the BLAG kernel. I looked at the
90k kickstart the junichiro sent and saw a @blag-kernel-devel group. In
any case, I have a feeling that it is based on the post the steveo32
made to the forum last month.

I am still sorting through the pre and post scripts for the branding for
grub and the start-up windows. I know how to change these within the OS,
but for the livecd, I just have to look a little closer. Any suggestions
would be helpful.

In order to get the latest linux-libre kernel on the livecd, I was
planning on adding the linux-libre repo within the kickstart, adding the
respective kernel and removing the base fedora kernel and replacing it
with kernel-libre-2.6.32. I attempted last month to add the linux libre
kernel repo to the f12 yum repo on my system. I had no luck with the
repo installing the kernel.

That's all for now!
