    758758So we now have a much more correct rpm built, even if not everything is solve. The beauty of Project-Builder will now appear, as it's as easy to generate more RPMs for other distributions than it is for your native distribution.
    759759
     760Imagine you want to build the same RPMs for the just issued Fedora 8, instead of your native distribution. First download the ISO image of your distribution and put it where you have space on your disk. Then call pb to help you create a new virtual machine for that distribution:
     761{{{
     762$ pb -p pb -r `pwd` -m fedora_8 -i ~/Download/Fedora-8-i386-DVD.iso newvm
     763Project: pb
     764Action: newvm
     765Creating the QEMU VM... Formating '/users/qemu/fedora_8.qemu', fmt=qcow2, size=5242880 kB
     766OK
     767Launching the VM /users/qemu/fedora_8.qemu... OK
     768Waiting for VM fedora_8 to come up...
     769}}}
     770Then the Virtual Machine is launched booting on your CD, and the rest is just a classical installation of a Linux distribution.
