Install RPM-based system into a directory
Rinse is a simple tool which is designed to carry out the installation of a new RPM-based distribution.
Using rinse you can easily setup simple chroot systems running different RPM-based distributions, such as CentOS, Scientific Linux or openSUSE.
The purpose and usage are analogous to the ‘debootstrap’ utility familiar to users of Debian GNU/Linux. It was primarily designed to work with the xen-tools software, which creates new guest images for running under the Xen hypervisor.
