Great, I'll go read it shortly.
Which means you didn`t change productPath variable in
file /usr/lib/anaconda/product.py like I wrote in installation
instructions :) Since I received a couple of similar complaints, it would
really help me if you told me have you read the documentation and still had
this unclear, or you just skipped the documentation? In other words - should
I work on the style and quality of documentation, or I should concentrate on
making documentation more available?
I read what was provided, but obviously missed it. If this is a
requirement, then how about including it in the anaconda patching
process so that it doesn't get missed.

Actually, for the repository that is on your hard drive, you only have to
provide a path, without any prefixes. For example:
root# kadischi /tmp/fc4 /tmp/livecd.iso
I tried various combinations of this without success. I'll give it
another go as using http probably is slower even though it was on the

It`s on the TODO list already...
I did a text-mode build so they splattered all over the screen.
628MB is the minimal installation. Shorter selection of packages
in broken dependencies. We had this topic on the list a few days ago...
In my earlier attempts using YETAAA, I have managed to remove lots of
stuff from the BASE and got it down to less than 500Mb even after adding
'firefox' and its dependencies. So I think there is still too much in
Base that isn't needed, particularly if one is trying to build CDs for
specific purposes. e.g. all the compiler stuff, yum, rpm etc. One
doesn't update a CD distribution one makes another.
Well, basically, we want changes to be reproducible and doing stuff
isn't. There are ways to perform customization with Kadischi, and I will
write a couple of words on the subject very soon (today or something).
I would want reproducibility too, which means scripting is the correct
approach. Whether that should be in an RPM on added to Kadischi, I don't
