Re: Rebuilding Fedora



Hello

There is a mistake. I would like to completly rebuild the whole distribution rmps from the srpms iso's not just the kernel.

Kind regards

I would like to build the fedora 2 release for the actual P4 CPU instead of the i386 packages shipped with the normal iso images.
Is there a howto to automaticly build a new fedora release out of the srpm isos'
