Software :: Making Customized Debian Install CD / ISO

Jul 14, 2011

I have a linux server system based on Debian which I'm needing to package up as an installer cd; so that I can distribute it to others in our office/group for them to install. I need to have it as simple as I can as most will be able to run the installer but many won't know too much more than that. Is there a way I can make up/modify an installer of Debian to include my kernel patches/updates and customized software all pre-installed of the installer cd?

I have compiled a custom kernel into the debian distro that I was working with and I've installed/written some software which is currently running on the machine.

I want to make an ISO installer which will install debian with the recompiled kernel as well as the custom software in its default configuration state.

Debian :: Build Customized Version Of The LMDE2

Jul 27, 2015

I'm currently trying to make my version of the LMDE 2 (based on Debian), but unfortunately, a lot of HOW-TO on this topic, is based on the remastersys, and the main site (and repository) is not available any more. The only one I could find is ubuntu build and they won't work on LMDE because it's Debian based. I also have tried tools like "systemback" - made a 4GB iso image file, and had few options to customize, and "bootcd" package, who had even less options (received a 2GB iso).

So, what I want:

Base system: LMDE 2 + official updates + some new software (like pinta, openshot, deluge etc.) + some removed software + fresh kernel -> compress it all and make an iso image file with option to load in LiveCD/USB mode and also install on HDD. I have made all the chain except "last iso part".

Ubuntu :: Remastering ISO Out Of Customized Install

Jun 25, 2010

I've built my ubuntu setup straight from a minimal install, just installing packages to get exactly the system I want, and I was wondering how I could fashion that into an ISO, config files and all. Could I use an ISO remaster program for that task? Or would a simple shell script be easier?

Debian :: Customized Distro Aimed At Booting Very Fast?

May 4, 2010

I ask to linux experts if it is possible to easily create a base debian distro that allows wireless networking and synaptic utility (and the basical tools) aimed at booting very fast, from hard-disk or stick. After installation, it would be possible to install other stuff, not much in fact. It should be able to recognize the hardware and then boot without checking everytime.

Ubuntu Installation :: Customized Install Of 10.04rc From CD?

Apr 24, 2010

I have the cd image for the install cd of ubuntu 10.04 release candidate. Before I install it, is there anyway to specify which of the default packages I DO NOT want to install (via command line arguments or some other means). There is ALOT of things I DO NOT want, like firefox, "cloud one", "social features", totem, rythmbox, "music store", empathy. I know that the cd allows you to adjust the command arguments for the install command, and something tells me that there should be an argument for specifying which packages to install/not-install or to choose from a list or something to the same effect.

Ubuntu :: Install Customized ISO With DM-Crypt Boot Disk?

Jan 7, 2011

I just bought a new laptop which will be running SSD (Corsair 120GB) as the boot drive and would like to migrate my OS to the new system. One of my requirements is full-disk encryption. I work with proprietary client data and need to encrypt the new drive, its swap partition, everything except for /boot. I've read instructions for doing this from the alternate install CD, but my OS is disturbingly customized (started out as 10.04) and it would take months to rebuild everything. I keep remastersys (-dist) ISOs to ensure I don't have to go through that process, but the ubiquity installer does not appear to have the option of doing disk-level crypt during the installation process. I can boot the ISO into CLI, but don't know how to run the alternate installer from there.

General :: RHEL 5.3 Server - Building Customized Install DVD

Mar 13, 2010

I have 50 identical workstations that are being dropped shipped from the vendor directly to the remote locations. I need to install a identical configuration, including installed packages, scripts and customize configuration onto each of this workstations. I cannot set up a kickstart server to install from remotely because of my organizations security policies. Not to mention that it would be painfully slow. I thought about DD-ing my "Master" build and sending it to the remote sites, but some of the admins are not very Linux savvy. I would really like to build a bootable DVD that would install the cloned Master build from my server to theirs. I was looking for something that would look like Anaconda to the person installing the image. If I could get them through this base install I think it would be easy to document how to change the workstation unique parameters or value. How to accomplished this? BTW, this will be a RHEL 5.3 server install.

Debian :: Making LiveDVD Of Encrypted System

Aug 23, 2015

I have a system which i installed on usb flash (doesn't matter why). The system has 3 partitions: "boot", "/" and "swap". "Swap" and "/" are encrypted by LUKS. "Swap" is encrypted by random key, "/" - by passphrase.

I created this system only to make a liveDVD from it (not liveUSB).

To achieve this goal i installed program called "Systemback" (fork of Remastersys).

[URL] ....
[URL] ....

So i pushed the button 'Create live system' (or Live system create, don't remember exactly) and configured it to automatically convert .*sblive to .*iso

Program made it's work and i burned image in DVD.

But when i launch it i have this:

The last picture - is when i trying to startliveDVD with installed LVM2. No difference except one message.

I went to freenode and ask some questions. Somebody told me that maybe the problem is in LVM. But LVM was already installed, so i installed LVM2. No result.

How can i make the system that is encrypted by LUKS work from DVD? And is it really possible? Maybe systemback doesn't support feature to make live-image of encrypted system?

The system is Debian 8.1.0

I did the same with nonencrypted system - result is succesfull, liveDVD works.

Debian :: Making Live USB Squeeze Persistent

Nov 8, 2010

I need to have a persistent Debian install on a thumbdrive to run a computer that is currently diskless (dead hard drive). So far I've managed to get it to boot Squeeze live beta by setting up the thumbdrive with UNetBootin, but it's not persistent. I found this, but step 6 is a mystery to me, as I can find no such command or package.

Debian Configuration :: Xen On Lenny Making Etch Vms?

This is 100% replicable. I certainly never asked it to create an Etch VM! I cannot find anything in the docs to change this. And for the record, I did let it finish creating it, and it most definitely made an Etch box.

Debian Hardware :: Making A Raid 5 With Lenny?

Sep 3, 2010

We are running on a debian lenny 5.0.5 server and we would like to upgrade our hadware with this card :


Apparently the AAc drivers [URL] should allow us to make a material raid 5 with this card. (I hope installing the drivres after/during the installation will be enough and we will not hae to compile the os with it !) Though after searching for days the entire web i couldn't find any feedback on how runs this card with a debian lenny ? confirm us that it WILL run smoothly on a debian 5.0.5 ? If not, well .. we are trying to make a material raid 5 with 4 SATA II HD on a server without PCI-X port (only express 16x 8x 4x 2x 1x. us a robust raid controler that is assured to run fine with debian lenny ?

Debian :: Making Apt-get Ignore Broken Packages?

Apr 21, 2011

what should not be mentioned:

*disabling "Automatically fix broken packages before installing or removing" in aptitude -- because it does not work

*editing /var/lib/dkpg/status -- not related to apt-get really

* -m or -f options of apt-get -- because they do not help me in any way

* downloading the package manually and using dpkg --force-depends-version -i <package> -- again, not apt-get

I need the --just shut the fuck up and dl&install the darn package option immediately.

Debian :: Conky Making DNS Request Infinite Loops

Sep 14, 2015

For some reason my Conky is making my machine do infinite DNS requests to the last host I'm connected with. For example, if I visit it'll start the infinite DNS request to this host. If I close the navigator it stops. If I try to connect to it starts the DNS requests. If I disconnect it stops. Why is it happening?

That's my script:

Code: Select allbackground no
update_interval 1
total_run_times 0
own_window yes
own_window_type desktop
own_window_transparent yes

OpenSUSE Install :: Making An Os Bootable?

Mar 29, 2010

I got a hard drive with an image of an older redhat OS that i need to do some work with. The hard drive isnt bootable but i need to get into it somehow. I am not even close to an expert on these kinds of things, but i will provide the information that ive got.

fdisk -ul

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 63 149838254 74919096 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 149838255 156296384 3229065 5 Extended


The simplest way the occurs to me to do this is to virtualize the OS on it. So i installed hypervisor from yast, but (i think) it requires an image of the OS to virtualize it, not some partitions on a hard drive. Is there an easy way around this?

Debian :: Making Sense Of Undefined Reference Linking Errors

Jan 23, 2011

I'm trying to build a shared library, and am receiving several undefined reference linking errors. Specifically, ffmpeg linked with libx264. I'm aware that this is not an appropriate forum for questions specific to ffmpeg or libx264. In order for one library / application (ffmpeg) to reference another library (libx264), the linker has to know where the referenced library ( is located in the file system.

I'm pretty sure the linker knows where is, because I receive a different error message when I run ffmpeg's configure script if the linker can't find In general, should running the install target of a make file be preferred over specifying the appropriate paths in the CFLAGS and LDFLAGS environment variables? I've tried both, and it doesn't seem to make a difference in regard to my error which method I choose.

How exactly is a library referenced? My error messages are
/root/ffmpeg/libavcodec/ undefined reference to `d26'
/root/ffmpeg/libavcodec/ undefined reference to `d22'
/root/ffmpeg/libavcodec/ undefined reference to `d2'
/root/ffmpeg/libavcodec/ undefined reference to `d20'
/root/ffmpeg/libavcodec/ undefined reference to `d24'
/root/ffmpeg/libavcodec/ undefined reference to `d0'
/root/ffmpeg/libavcodec/ undefined reference to `q1'

If I can find out what library 'd26', 'd22', etc. are declared in, I should be able to resolve the undefined references. What exactly are 'd26', 'd22', etc.? Are these functions, classes, or something else? How can I find out what functions / classes are defined in a particular library?

Debian Configuration :: Making Server Acessible For Remote Control From Web

The next step we want to do is making it acessible from the web, so we can remotely do things with the office files.Unfortunately, I have no idea how to go about this.Our current setup is a router which connects to the phone line, and into which other devices are connected. We're in one room of a big office building which may complicate matters somewhat.Can anyone provide a bit of general info on this topic. Give me somewhere to start ?Ultimately we want to be able to connect to the vnc port from anywhere in the world.
