SUSE apparently has a page where you go and use a nifty, albeit very slow, web interface to create you’re own liveCD/USB/install media. It’s pretty freaking awesome assuming it works out OK.
You can pick any package you want to install. The page handles all the dependencies for you; so if you pick Anjuta but didn’t grab CMAKE it’ll grab that for you. It also allows you to share your appliance with everyone else. It also allows you to upload files (individually or in zip or tar format) to your appliance so it’s always there for you. On top of that you can even write scripts that will run on first load or every time the liveCD/USB stick boots. Finally, in true open source fashion, you can clone someone else’s appliance and modify it to make your own.
Naturally I’ve created one from scratch and have it up for commenting, sharing, and cloning. If someone tries (I haven’t even yet to be honest) be sure to leave me note here or there. I’m very excited about the prospect.
I wish Fedora were this easy to “spin.”
