I am in the tasks section of the following tutorial [URL] I did the list package thing to see what packages there are. However now I cannot leave the list in order to run the purge command. How can I get back to the previous section so I can remove packages from the custom live cd. I want to make sure I am editing the live cd and not the current install. I am going to make two images. One cd that will still have a gui but I plan to build as a recovery tool. The other one is a dvd and will be for installing everything I want on any machine. I am doing the tutorial with Karmic. Also I have cursors, themes and icons I installed from gnome look. I then went to customize and created my own personal mix I like. I would like to make this a standalone theme and come as the default theme on the live cd and dvd. I have no clue what I am doing, however wish to learn to build my own custom live cd. Also I would like to know how to ad repositories to the live cd and how to add programs pre installed that are not usually included.
I'm sure this is possible to do, but how do I create a Ubuntu install cd that uses my current config. Ideally I would like to be able to install exactly what I have on my system now, without user files. Wine, Ccsm, amarok, audacity, themes the whole nine yards. I tried using a program called Ubuntu Customization Kit, but it wouldnt let me mount the normal ubuntu install .iso file. This would avoid the hour and a half post-install config every time I screw Ubuntu up as well as stripping off many of the programs I don't need...
I want to create a custom live cd of off peppermint os one. I want to add specific software, and delete some packages i don't really need. How can I do this Reconstructor is not what i want, because i am forced to use Ubuntu or Debian, remastersys doesnt work for me since I see no option in using peppermint one as a live cd.
I'm working to setup an small PC as a kiosk, I was able to create an USB pen drive with ubuntu 10.10 with a persistent area and I made all the changes I need, everything works but if the PC loss power in most of the cases the file system is corrupted. Now I'm trying to generate a non persistent USB drive, but I'm having some problems. I was able to install remastersys and create an ISO image of my system (dist) but when I tried to create the USB drive using different Programs, in all cases I get the boot menu but it never complete the login, it just try to keep booting. The only messages I saw when I create the iso image is a bunch on chown operation fail from remastsys, I'm not sure if it is part of the problem. how to create an USB read only from a persistent one ?
Is it possible to create custom Live Linux cd that consumes less RAM by limiting its functionalities?My laptop has 448 mb RAM and I want to run the LIVE CD along side windows xp pro(using VMware Player). I have tried a few Linux live cds but all of them are very slow when I run them inside xp!! I want to create this custom live cd so it only have firefox browser (latest version) pre-installed along with flash player (Latest version) and ability to hear voice when playing ..... videos. (I want omit the rest of programs in order that Linux runs faster). Is it possible to gain speed by omitting un wanted programs? How I can create such LIVE cd with limited functionality and fast performance.
I am trying to make a Custom Ubuntu Live CD using Remastersys and an installer for the Live CD using Ubiquity. I was able to successfully create a Custom live CD using remastersys and when I boot from the custom Live CD the grub correctly displays the Custom Live CD Name that I specified during the ISO file creation using remastersys. However, when I install from the Live CD that I created, using Ubiquity, after reboot, the Grub menu displays as Ubuntu and not the Custom Label. How can I change it so that after installation, the custom Live CD name is displayed?
I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 x64 as a base for my custom live cd and i could not change the username. I changed my /etc/casper.conf and /etc/lsb_release, yet still nothing changes. Is this achieved with casper/ubiquity and preseeding at all?
I am new to linux, but need to do the following: 1.) Use a basic ubuntu 9.04 distro 2.) On boot run an existing .sh script
I would like to make a thumbdrive with a live cd version that will auto run to desktop and execute the .sh script. I am looking for pointers on accomplishing this. I have found ways to get the live cd to run on USB, but it still involves clicking the "run without changing your system link" and I cannot figure out how to run the script on start up.

I'm building my own ubuntu variant for low resource systems at the moment. It's based from the ubuntu 10.10 minimal install (12mb iso). It uses openbox as the window manager and SLiM as the login/display manager.
What I would like two know is how to have a few config files that are on the live cd to be altered for the installed system. Specifically, SLiM autologin, but I'll probably find other things to change aswell. Basically a sort of "first boot script".
I'd like to create my own custom Debian live CD — the idea being to have my own rescue CD with my favorite Debian tools installed. I read about bootcd and was going to give that a try, after creating the ideal system in a qemu virtual machine.
How much exactly can you install on a system so that bootcd can still fit it on a CD? I'm presuming there is some kind of compression involved. When I tried to create my VM, I coudln't get Jessie + LXDE to install onto a 2GB virtual drive (net install) so naturally I'm wondering what I'm going to be able to put on a 700MB CD.
I need to build customs liveCd (usb) to run a distributed application that I'm developing. I have been using debian live-helper to build debian live cds, and it's very flexible, and works. But I'm looking for an alternative to it. I have heard about fedora livecd-creator. What do you think is a better tool?: livehelper or livecd-creator, maybe about good hardware recognition, easy to use, flexibility, reliability, etc. What others good tools are to do this job?
I have been able to successfully build a live Linux CD, the problem is during the course of setting up my new linux instance on my latop I had to install a few items (intel drivers). So got all the files and everything worked after manually installing, but wanted to try to rebuild the CD with all the files in the CD, rather than having to use a USB drive to put the file onto my laptop. When I made the changes to the configuration that I previously used(just edited the chroot file and did lh_build again) nothing happened the binary was no rebuilt. So some questions: If I am wanting to add files into a live CD build how do I do this? How do I rebuild a CD? or Is it possible? (i.e. I have to continually start from scratch each time).
I want to customise an amnesic Debian environment (like Kali Live CD) with everything (Users, background, icons, etc.) set up to work the way I need. This OS should be inside a memory stick, and, most important, it has to have an encrypted partition I can mount and unmount whenever I want to save persistent data.
I am trying to create a custom Ubuntu live CD according to this guide [URL]. First of all I wanted to test how mkisofs utility works so I copied the content of the live CD to /tmp/bootcd directory and create an ISO image. I ran the following commands
If I understand it correctly, the same image as the source one should be created. When booting the Ubuntu boot menu appears and I choose "Try Ubuntu without installing.." It gets stuck after a while with this message "Unable to find a medium containing a live filesystem".
I've been working on creating a Live CD with the tools I want, just for my use with system recovery and repair. For the most part, things have gone very well. The Live CD actually works fine, somewhat. I have run in to a problem where it doesn't actually boot on a lot of hardware.
What happens is during boot, while the modules are loading, the boot process hangs and the disc drive spins down. While I thought it might be a kernel problem, I'm using the .config from the latest gentoo Live CD, which boots fine on the same hardware.
What are the best ways to make the kernel using git, and localmodinfo. and optimizing the kernel the best way on a laptop I have, which is a desktop laptop, so it is never really unplugged. Has a core 2 duo 2.53Ghz, 4GB DDR3 RAM, and an ATI HD 3870 GPU.so what things other than the obvious core 2 cpu type when making the kernel. It's on Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit. I also want to create it with the local mod info. and Also create this into a .deb package so it may be saved.
I don't really like Los Angeles (they steal all our water) and neither Tijuana nor Vancouver make sense to me, so I am trying to make my own, custom timezone of Felton, California. How do I do this? I changed my /etc/timezone to "America/Felton" but upon reboot my calendar still says "Los Angeles". Which files do I need to change?
for a project I am working on, I need the same install configuration on every machine, and I'd like to have all the packages I need on one disc, with none of the ones I don't. I also need to use a non-standard file systems(jffs2,nilfs) as the hardware end of my project works on flash memory, and would like these two FSs to replace the typical magnetic disk based choices.
