Software :: How Hard Would It Be To Make Custom Distro?

Feb 20, 2011

I would like to take say, CentOS5, customize it to my needs, then make an installer ISO for it.Basically I'd like it to be a next next next install, and it has everything already in it like sshfs, basic config files, and other custom stuff preconfigured. I tend to do all these things manually every time I install, and I'd like to just automate it all, and also not have to depend on an internet connection each time. How would How would I go about doing that? I don't want to just take a disk image, since then I'm restricted to that platform. I still want it to be a true installer.

Ubuntu :: Create Install Disc Of Your Custom Distro

Sep 22, 2010

I have a question that I can't find anything about online. I have spent the last few months creating and customizing a Kubuntu OS for my company and we want to install it on roughly 45 computers (all different models). Is there a way to save my creation to a cd so it can be installed on another computer?

I know about creating an image of the HDD but what I want to do is create what you would get in the store from Microsoft. A complete OS on a CD, ready to install with all of my configuration changes already setup.

Software :: Build A Custom Distro For System Maintenence?

Apr 19, 2011

scanning them with Avast! and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware or by running registry cleaners like Ccleaner.However, I think it would be cool to have a Live system that I could boot from my flashdrive that I could have programs installed to do all this with.It would be cool if I could use Puppy Linux, since it loads and runs from RAM, which gives a huge speed boost when compared to running a live version of a distro like Ubuntu, but I don't really know my way around Puppy, or how to make my own "pupplet". Also, from what I could tell, Puppy Linux didn't have a package manager like Pacman or Aptitude.Here's a list of programs I would like to have a Linux alternative to use:-Avast! Anti-virus-Ccleaner (registry cleaner)-Malwarebytes Anti-Malware/Superantispyware (malware/spyware cleaner)-Perhaps also a Defrag program like Defraggle

OpenSUSE Install :: Custom SuSE Distro And Yast/control.xml?

Dec 8, 2009

As a Fan of openSuSE on the Desktop i'm about to create the version 2.0 of our local LUGS munotLinux distribution which should be localized for switzerland and contain a lot of additional software.

For this case I tried to modify the control.xml file in the root image for yast to hide the dialogs for language/keyboard layout, location and deskop choice (it will be a kde based distro). I can set the language, keyboard and location defaults correctly, but I couldn't get any success in disabling the regarding dialogs yet. And after all googeling and reading the available documentation I can't find a hint about the correct way to modify the control.xml this way.

General :: 1 Distro 2 Hard Drives?

Jan 3, 2010

I was thinking about this for a while and I haven't come across it in any of my reading. Could you split an os over two drives? Example:
drive hda, 35GB xp - 5GB fat32storage / hda1 8GB root - 2GB swap
drive hdb 10GB usr - 10GB home -10GB var / hdb 10GB root linux#2
hdb 1GB swap - 9GB user - 5GB home - 5GB tmp I hope I made this clear enough I'm sure someone must have tried this before. Maybe I got too much time on my hands.

General :: Would You Make Your Own Distro?

Aug 22, 2010

I think that the logical conclusion of the greater self-reliance of Linux users is wanting to make one's own distro entirely. Using that Linux From Scratch distro, probably--at least if you're not a programmer. (I am guessing that if one knows the right programming languages, one doesn't even need LFS.) In an ideal world where we had the time and will for this, most or all of us would make our own distros. I'm interested, but it's much more work than I'm willing to do. Am I right?

General :: CentOS 5 - Custom Hard Disk Partition?

Mar 3, 2011

I want to install Cent OS5 on my machine. The Hard Disk is SATA. I want to discuss about how to custom partition the hard disk. In the old version there is a drop down list for manual partition the hard disk. like /,boot,swap,var etc etc. In the new version of centos 5 I can not see things like that. During installation process and in partition page there are things like:

Code:
Remove all partitions on selected drives and create default layout.
Remove Linux partitions on selected drives and create default layout.
Use free space on selected drives and create default layout.
Create custom layout.

When I choose custom layout it show me an error message. "An error has occurred-no invalid devices were found on which to create new files system. Please check your hardware for the cause of this problem."

General :: Make Custom 'locale' Files?

Jul 9, 2011

Under Debian "Expert Installation" once I have chosen installation/system language and location, I get an informative notice, that:

Code:
There is no locale defined for the combination of language and country you have selected.

..and I need to choose one locale available for the selected language. As I understand, locale is just a set of environmental variables used by applications and printed out with locale command?

In addition, is it possible to generate own locale files after the installation, which will match my needs?

Software :: Make A Custom Minimalistic DE/window Manager?

i am working on developing a very minimalistic os based on a striped down linux kernel and for the user interface ive come up with a bunch of custom graphics and such and then i was confronted with the problem of what window manager do i use....

basically my concept for the ui is windows that only open fullscreen (so no resizing, minimizing, moving) btu when you want to change threw applications it displays everything in a coverflow style and im planning on using the Qt toolkit for the interface itself and basing alot of it on web technology's.

Fedora Installation :: Didn't Make Custom Setting Changes To Partitions

I installed Fedora 11 on a server with 2 equal sized disks. I used the gui installer and didn't make custom setting changes to the partitions. One of the steps asked for me to choose the disks i wanted to use for this installation. I selected both disks and after the installation Fedora only sees one volume the size of both disks combined.Do I now have software raid0 or do I have something else?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Build / Make Custom Driver Into Kernel?

Mar 29, 2009

I'm new to linux and recently installed openSUSE 11.1 on my Lenovo Thinkpad SL500. So far it's great... only problem is the hotkeys and brightness control don't work. Digging around online I found this "experimental" driver that purportedly works fine, but I have no idea how to compile, install, or otherwise use it. Here... tetromino's lenovo-sl-laptop at master - GitHub I'm not sure what to do with the makefile and C file provided. For example, what do I do with this instruction...

"To enable the brightness control, load the module with the "control_backlight=1" module parameter (i.e. insmod lenovo-sl-laptop.ko control_backlight=1 )" I know someone on here will be able to explain how to do this in a "computer engineering for chemists" language! I'm comfortable enough working in the terminal with commands, but have found no real straightforward explanation of how to do so (only "programming" experience is MATLAB m file writing).

Ubuntu :: Make A Custom Debian Package Prompt For A Restart After Installation

Jun 29, 2011

I am wondering how to add a need to restart notification in a Debian package, so upon installation, it'd pop up something to tell the user to restart the computer for changes to take effect. Perhaps something like what happens with some packages through the update-manager when it prompts the user to restart for the changes to take effect.

Is there any way to do that? Perhaps adding something at the end of a "postinst" file?

Thinking about it, I could just add something like this at the end of the "postinst" file:

Code:
notify-send -t 86400000 -i /usr/share/icons/gnome/32x32/status/info.png "Please restart the computer for all changes to take effect."

It'd work, but not as well. For instance, if the person isn't by their computer at the time.

Another option could be using a Zenity dialog box. That might work. Though, if done, wouldn't a yes/no question box keep the actual package from technically finishing until the user would select yes/no to restart?
