Is there a application with a GUI that can be used to make my Fedora 16 install into a installable LiveCD backup? Something similar to the command line tool that PCLinuxOS uses. If someone could tell me of and walk me through the command line method, that would help as well.


If I read that one right (came across that page before posting) doesn't it simply supply a tool for creating a LiveCD which you instruct what applications will be included when the LiveCD is created as opposed to the LiveCD being a true backup of your Fedora system as installed on the machine it's being created on? (Thank you for the response though)

I'm not aware of any GUI tool to convert a hard disk installation into a livecd.

You could try three approachs:

1.- Follow this howto (ubuntu based, so you will need a bit of work to "translate" it into Fedora motto), but it's console based:

2.- Convert your installation into a virtual machine, so you can play with it inside your real machine (a GUI tool, and free, is VMware VCenter Converter, once converted you can run it with VMware Player, also free):

3.- Do a clean installation in a USB disk, so you can take your Fedora installation always with you (as all the actual computers can boot from a USB disk, there won't be any problem)
