CentOS 5 :: Creating A Minimalistic LiveCD Image?

Aug 23, 2009

I followed the instructions here: [URL] and then here: [URL] and installed the necessary packages. But when I try building the minimal image as a test, I get lots of errors, as seen in the attached build log. There are lots of things that don't seem to work. Is this project at a state where it's not currently usable? Or do I have a problem with my system configuration? I was running at root.

[root@localhost test]# LANG=C livecd-creator --config=centos-livecd-minimal.ks --fslabel=CentOS-minimal
Filesystem label=CentOS-minimal
OS type: Linux
Block size=4096 (log=2)

Debian :: Making Remaster - Creating LiveCD From Existing Image

Jan 10, 2011

I'm looking for a way to create a live cd from the existing image. I'd like to include some sort of installer, I've found gui remaster utilities, but none for the shell only. I need to setup the image to automatically login, so the user could just pop in the cd and start it up without a monitor or keyboard.

Ubuntu Installation :: Creating A Bootable USB Image Based On A Running System (NOT LiveCD)

Sep 2, 2010

I have a system built and running in exactly the basic configuration I want, with my recompiled kernel, extra packages, special drivers, everything works, life is good. What I want to do is take this exact setup and create an image I can copy onto a bootable USB stick. Is there a way to essentially take the contents of my hard drive and copy that onto a USB stick and then boot directly from that? The use case behind this is that I am building an embedded system of which I may have hundreds of boxes with identical hardware and software configurations. Instead of hard drives, I am going to use USB sticks for cost efficiency and maintenance. My idea is that when it's time to upgrade, I could just image a hundred new sticks and go out and swap them.

My issue is that a standard LiveCD install gets me maybe 25% of the way to a finished system. I need to recompile the kernel for realtime support with my CPU, add some fidgety drivers for some specific hardware, and install a whole bunch of additional packages. I suppose I could create a makefile(s) to replicate all the manual steps of the buildout but that seems like a lot of unnecessary complexity IF I can just image that running system as it is.

Ubuntu :: Creating A 8.10 LiveCD With All Updates Installed?

Feb 1, 2009

Ive gotten a project from a local school in a very rural town to upgrade the computer systems on a very low budget. So, being a F/OSS advocate I ran the idea of a linux environment which, in reality will cost hundereds (maybe thousands) less for them, and also cut down "down-time" due to viruses and such. I was thinking of Ubuntu since its got a great community, and personally, I love it. Problem is, this school is on a limited bandwidth for internet, so installing ubuntu and performing the updates is not a feasible idea since the cost will be astronomical. My question is, how can I go about an simply "update" the ubuntu 8.10 LiveCD so that when I install it, It will have all the updates? Another thing that would be nice, is that this school would like to have their own wallpaper, so if I could change the default wallpaper while I'm performing this "update" will be very nice.

Ubuntu Installation :: Creating Custom LiveCD/USB Iso File?

Apr 30, 2011

Having spent weeks perfecting my Ubuntu the way I like it, I was wondering if there is a way of preserving it as a either a liveCD or USB flash drive, with a view of using it on other PC's activated upon start up?

Possibly (under the USB option) with the option of launching from the flash drive itself, or installing onto a PC's hard drive.So, in essence, it would be a liveCD but custom made to reflect the way my Ubuntu looks and feels now? Is there any easy-to-use software available to perform such a task?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unetbootin LiveCD Image Onto HDD?

Oct 27, 2010

My old HDD died. I have 10.10 installed on a usb stick. This is a full installation not a LiveCD. I downloaded the live CD and Unetbootin.

Can I use unetbootin to create a bootable 'LiveCD' onto a partition of my new hard drive?

Without a CD drive, I can't think of any other way to get an installation onto my new HDD

EDIT - got ubuntu installed but had to do it at work, so i am still curious as how one would proceed with only a USB (full installation) and a blank HDD with no access to any other computers.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Download 10.04 Image Into LiveCD Filesystem?

Sep 30, 2010

Recently I've been struggling with an upgrade to Karmic Koala (see my Cannot Boot from Hard Disk) from Jaunty Jackalope. Despite a valiant effort to find and install grub2 I've decided instead to download and install Lucid Linx. However when I visit the download site on ubuntu.com it gives no options as to where I might save it. Since I'm currently running Karmic from a LiveCD the filesystem doesn't have enough room for the 700mg .iso, although I have plenty of room on the 40 gig HDD. How do I point the download towards my hdd rather than the LiveCD filesystem?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 KDE LiveCD - Invalid Or Corrupt Kernel Image

Ubuntu Installation :: Include Extra Packages In LiveCD Image?

Aug 12, 2010

how to add packages to an existing Ubuntu ISO or LiveCD (Think like slipstreaming Windows Service Packs into Windows installation CDs, if that helps). I want to add things such as more games or the restricted extras plugins so that I don't have to go get them every time I install the OS on someone's computer, things like that. Not as important, but if it would be possible to remove packages

PS I'm not necessarily looking for a specific version, but I'm currently running 9.10 on one machine and 10.04 (soon to be 10.10) on another. A guide for any Ubuntu distro would be fine though. I'm just as interested in learning the theory of it as I am the actual execution.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: LiveCD Persistent Image And Firefox Flash Plugin?

Jan 23, 2010

I have a Ubuntu 9.10 LiveCD (and I plan to keep using it as just a LiveCD); this works fine.

Firefox works fine too, and installing a flash player plugin is all right.

The problem appears when I reboot and see that Firefox no longer has the flash plugin installed.

So I tried making a persistent image USB stick for this, added the persistent keyword at the end of the boot options, and Firefox still forgets that it can actually play ..... videos.

The persistent image USB seems to be doing something, at least browsing through it shows several folders, for instance /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin which constains a file libflashplayer.so

It's just that Firefox doesn't seem to care. What else should I do?

General :: Creating An Image For PXE Boot

Jul 14, 2010

Right direction regarding the creation of a bootable Linux Image for PXE booting. I've already consulted google and the other obvious sources I could think of, but it seems that PXE is mostly used to install stuff, which isn't quite what I need.

The goal here is to have a pool of computers that boot from a central source so maintenance is less of a hassle. Installation of the individual PCs is not desired and I'm supposed to provide a functional Linux via PXE booting.

What I need is basically a way to turn a working Linux into an image that can be booted via network. Or to recreate that Linux as an image that I can boot.

OpenSUSE Install :: Mount A Live Compressed File System For Reading & Writing From A LiveCD/DVD Image?

Jul 9, 2011

On a Linux CD/DVD, there are compressed filesystem images for the live version for KDE or Gnome for example, but they have no extension, but they are clearly an image file ( compressed filesystem images for the live version before installation ) !!

I was wondering, How do I mount these compressed filesystem images, after I copy the ISO content of the CD/DVD on my system .... I want to edit some files or packages and make some changes, like if I want to customize a live version of gnome for example ! ... ( I know you might be tempted to tell me to use KIWI etc to customize etc ..... ) ... but I want to be able to mount the compressed file system image, then edit it for reading and writing while it is in a subdirectory on its own ... i want to open it ! ... is there a way to do this ??? ... these type of files have no extension ...

i can open this compressed filesystem image then to edit for read & write ... before I roll it back again ..... If and when I succeed .... what should I watch out for ? ... will the same compressed file image but slightly modified work again ?

PS. that same question could be kind of translated or be extended like : how do I use unionfs/squashfs programs on the command line to mount these image files with no extension for read & write mode ???

Debian :: Creating Live .iso Image (without Remastersys)

Jul 12, 2011

i feel like this is a stupid question as i have seen many different ways to make a debian live cd, but the only way i understand is remastersys.i am trying to make a snapshot of my own debian unstable (sid) to be capable of re-distribution. remastersys will ONLY work on ubuntu, lenny, and squeeze.if anyone knows of any relatively simple tools i could use or could write an easy how too that would be very much appreciated. i am attempting to stray away from ubuntu and ubuntu based distros and use debian instead, although i cant find any distribution based on debian that i really like (maybe linux mint debian edition based on debian testing), but i really want the software right out of unstable (sid) and i would like to be able to make a distribute-able snapshot for myself and others that may be interested. (xfce + compiz + others, hopefully plymouth, out of the box). i have made some very good headway on this, but i dont know how to make a live cd out of an installed system without remastersys.

Fedora :: Creating A Hard Drive Image?

Oct 7, 2009

however, I couldn't find a place in which it would really fit well. I have 2 hard drives, that I want to backup. I've heard of servers and things like that using a hard drive image. Is this similar to a disk image? What are the benefits of using hard drive imaging as opposed to using DVDs? And perhaps most importantly: how would I go about it using Fedora 10 (64 bit)?

General :: Creating Image Of Hard Disk

Jul 28, 2010

I am new to the Linux world and I am not sure if what I am trying to do is achievable or not. I am trying to make an image of my existing drives running Linux on a USB and I want to use the same image off the USB to clone more bootable hard drives. Something like what Ghost does in windows. The problem is using 'dd' the image is too big ( I have 1tb drives ) and then I am not sure how to convert these images back on to new drives so that they boot in the OS as well. i am not sure if there is a utility that would let you do that?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Creating A Bootable Custom Image?

Apr 1, 2010

I have installed Centos 5.4 and then on top of that i have been installing many softwares over the time ( like pbx system , web console , billing etc.) and now it has come to a quite stable stage. the problem is i have to move this installation to another machine with different config etc. even have to install it on multiple systems. the idea is to create a bootable linux iso of the current machine with all the softwares so i can simply put it in a different machine and make it install and run without much fuss. is creating a linux appliance the only solution ? or is there any way to backup the current machine in an iso format and then install it on another machine? also i would like to make this completely hardware independent.

General :: Creating Image Of Drive Partitions

Jan 6, 2011

I have what I thought was a simple task of creating ISO images of my Windows 7 system partion and boot partiton (the C drive) on my physical hard drive that I could use to load Windows 7 onto a virtual machine. Anyway, I'm running Ubuntu off the CD drive and I can see my drive partions (checked using the fdisk -l command). I have tried many iterations of the mkisofs command, but no matter what I do I get the error message: unable to open disk image file 'dev/sdb/win7sys.iso'. I don't understand why it's trying to open an ISO file it is supposed to be creating. The -o FILE option sets the output file name, so the message makes no sense to me. Below is an example of a simple and longer version with more options that I have tried to create an image of my sytem partiton (sda1) and save it on an external drive (sdb) with the file name: win7sys.iso (the next step I think would be to create or merge both partition images as one iso file for the VM). But I can't get past this error.

Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong?

sudo mkisofs -o dev/sdb/win7sys.iso /dev/sda1

sudo sudo mkisofs -input-charset iso8859-1 -V win7sys -o dev/sdb/win7sys.iso /dev/sda1


* Note that the output after the -o parameter is the desired destination /dev/sdb (my external drive) for the image file and /dev/sda1 is my Windows 7 system or boot partition (sda2 is what Windows sees as the C drive).

CentOS 5 :: Create A CentOS Based LiveCD That Mounts A NFS Share And Executes One Script?

Aug 14, 2009

I'm trying to create a CentOS based liveCD that mounts a NFS share and executes one script there. The NFS never mounts altough while logged I can mount it with the very same command that I use in the KS.

In the %post I have :

%post --log=/tmp/post.log --erroronfail
mkdir /mnt/nfs
mount -o nolock 10.23.1.1:/csc/RemoteHome /mnt/nfs

I added the --log in order to debug, but nothing is written in /tmp/post.log. I tried redirection on the mount command with >> /tmp/debug.log but this is not written. Maybe during the post sequence /tmp is RO ? Anyway, I tried with ifup lo, service portmap start in the %post, but doesnt change (I even have a service : command not found in the live cd creator output).

Here is the remainder of the KS :
lang en_US.UTF-8
keyboard us
timezone US/Eastern

Ubuntu :: Creating A Disk Image / Archive Of Old Partitions?

I am installing Linux on some spare space I left over from my previous two Windows installations.

From within Linux, what's the most risk-free way of imaging these two partitions and saving them to a single image file or archive? I want to preserve the entire partition because I have no idea what I may have forgotten to copy. What is the most suitable program that can do this?

Is there any way to run the partition in a virtual machine at a later date?

After this is done, I want to delete those old partitions and extend my Linux ones.

Ubuntu :: Creating A USB Startup Disk - Image Not Listed

Jul 28, 2010

I am trying to create a bootable USB drive. I go to System > Administration > Startup Disk Creator and click on 'Other' as the image I want to use is not listed. I then find the Chrome OS image and double click but then I return to the Disk Creator and it is still not listed as the source disk.

So does anybody know how to get around this so I can use this program to create a bootable USB drive, or another way that I can create one? I have used the Disk Creator to create a bootable version of Jolicloud (which is probably one of the worst Linux distros out there) before, but now it won't work.
