febootstrap - Bootstrap a basic Fedora system
by Richard W.M. Jones (rjones@redhat.com)
----------------------------------------------------------------------

febootstrap is a Fedora equivalent to Debian's debootstrap.  You can
use it to create a basic Fedora filesystem.

There are currently some restrictions compared to debootstrap.

For instructions, restrictions, examples etc. please read the manpage
febootstrap(8).

Requirements
------------

  fakeroot
    - Tested with version 1.11.

  fakechroot >= 2.9 or 2.8 + patch
    - **** NB. KNOWN NOT TO WORK WITH 2.8 *****  You MUST apply
      the patch 'fakechroot-2.8-relchroot.patch' to the fakechroot
      sources and recompile.  Hopefully this patch will be included
      in future versions of fakechroot.

  yum
    - Tested with version 3.2 (works best with 3.2.21 or above)
    - Needs network access to a Fedora repository, or a local
      Fedora mirror.

  perldoc
    - This is just used to generate the manpage.

  bash

  MAKEDEV

  upx
    - Ultimate Packer for eXecutables, for minimizing binaries

  qemu
    - If you want to test-run your systems.

Building and installing
-----------------------

  ./configure
  make
  sudo make install

Note, if you want to run the scripts locally without installing,
you have to set the $PATH to the current directory, ie:

  PATH=$(pwd):$PATH
  febootstrap [...]
