how to jigdo download a fedora 8 re-spin in one easy step?

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


  for the first time, i'd like to download the fedora 8 x86_64 re-spin
and, to be frank, there's not a single web page i've found that tells
me how to use jigdo to do it.

  i've perused the tutorials and HOWTOs at and
followed links, and i'm now fairly conversant on the rationale behind
re-spins and why jigdo was developed and a whole lot of other stuff
but i've yet to find a single page that says, "oh, you want a re-spin?
follow these steps."

  seriously, this is what i think has been a fundamental failing of a
lot of online fedora documentation -- the notion of a simple "recipe":
do these things, and you will get what you want.  instead, there's
typically a great deal of philosophical substantiation, while the poor
reader is just sitting there, thinking, "well, yeah, but i just want
to *do* something, so how do i *do* it?"  (it's sort of like, when i
ask someone for the time, i want them to tell me the time, i don't
need to be told how to build a watch.)

  so, really, when i decided to grab a re-spin, i figured to invest a
minute or two googling, find the command, and run it.  i'm still
looking.  why is it typically this time-consuming?
