This repo contains scripts related to the FedoraNeuro Lab images which is maintained by NeuroFedora SIG. These are currently hosted here: https://fedorapeople.org/groups/neuro-sig/

Preparation

Install livecd-tools and spin-kickstarts. There are different kickstart scripts available in the spin-kickstarts package and you can try out different desktop enviroments as you wish.

sudo dnf install livecd-tools spin-kickstarts

You may need to configure sudo access to install files.

Clone the NeuroScripts

Clone the NeuroScripts repo.

git clone ssh://git@pagure.io/neuro-sig/neuro-scripts.git

You may need to install git, and install a ssh key at Pagure for this to work.

sudo dnf install git-all

Build an ISO

Once you have cloned the repo, you can find following files:

README.md
fedora-comp-neuro-common.ks
fedora-live-comp-neuro.ks
fedora-neuro-gnome-common.ks
fedora-repo-not-rawhide.ks
fedora-live-base.ks
fedora-live-workstation.ks
fedora-repo.ks
fedora-workstation-common.ks

Now we can build the initial ISO of FedoraNeuro.

Set SELinux in permissive mode if your system in Enforcing mode.

[danishka@localhost ~]$ getenforce 
Enforcing
[danishka@localhost ~]$ sudo setenforce 0
[danishka@localhost ~]$ getenforce 
Permissive

Open the terminal run the following command.

sudo livecd-creator --verbose --config=fedora-live-comp-neuro.ks --fslabel=Fedora-31-Comp-Neuro-0.1.0 --cache=cache --tmpdir=tmp

Make sure to use cache directory as you don't need to download all packages each time when you create the ISO. You will find the generated ISO file once the completion of build processing using initial script.
