Ubuntu :: Custom Live CD - Run Without Changing System Link

Jul 30, 2009

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.

Slackware :: Worth Changing Chost If System Built With Custom Prescott Cflags?

Oct 18, 2010

I built my slackware system from source code. Bootstrapped, toolchained etc.. The only thing I didn't change was the chost thinking that life would be easier if left alone @ i486. Would I have gained anything if I had used i786 or even pentium4 (pentium4-slackware-linux-gnu)?

I already got all the benefits of optimization when I used (still using) my own CFLAGS CXXFLAGS right? So changing the chost won't do anything speed wise will it? If I used march=prescott when compiling everything am I ok to just forget about the chost value? It's not gonna change anything will it?

Ubuntu :: Changing Sudoers Permissions - On A Live System?

Mar 7, 2011

i have this problem and i may need professional help; it appears smb4k made my /etc/sudoers file writable (according to log), hence, any sudo command will coerce this error:

Code: ubuntu@ubuntu~$ sudo any sudo: /etc/sudoers is mode 0640, should be 0440 sudo: no valid sudoers sources found, quitting i wanted to boot into recovery console and chmod 0440 /etc/sudoers, but it's a live system - it doesn't have a recovery mode. [URL].. How would i mount the live system from another liveCD?

Software :: Editing SARG To Link It To Custom Location?

Jan 12, 2011

I am using SARG for squid report analysis. And it is working fine. But I want to know if there is some custom configuration possible to link the SARG image at the top of the page to my custom location instead of its default homepage on sourceforge? For the ease of understanding, I am attaching the page screenshot here. The SARG image I am talking about is the one on the top in blue colour. It is linked to [URL] and I want it to link it to my sarg homepage.

Software :: Link Custom Libraries To Target Executables Using In G++ Linker

Jun 29, 2010

I am having some trouble when I try to link my custom libraries to target executables. There are two libraries

liba
libb

and an executable exec based on main.o The library libb has some reference to liba. Now if I put the libraries in same directories, I can compile the code as g++ -o exec main.o liba.a libb.a But, if I put the libraries in different directories, say d1 and d2, and use the command as g++ -o exec main.o d1/liba.a d2/libb.a I get an error as undefined reference to some function in liba. I am not sure if I am missing some thing in linking process. Also, if libb doesnot refer any functions in liba, there is no error in either of the case.

Ubuntu :: Changing To A Custom Resolution For HDTV Using NVIDIA Drivers

Jul 17, 2010

I have a Philips 19' HDTV I use as my monitor, I have tried every guide out there, including the wiki one with xandr. Nothing works for me. This seems like it should be way easier, set custom resolution go.. but this isn't the case.

Using Ubuntu 10.04 -

I've tried editing the xorg.conf and adding the modelines and changing the modes , I've tried the xandr commands. I've tried guides from years ago to current ones. I'm desperate, Everything is cut off like maybe an inch not even. Can just barely see the edges of the top and bottom bars.

I've been working on this for many many hours coming up with nothing every time. I wish there was a way to just resize the desktop.

Here is my most recent attempt at the conf file.

Ubuntu :: Creating Custom Live Cd?

Mar 6, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: How To Create A Custom Live Cd

Jun 11, 2010

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...

Ubuntu :: Ubiquity - Custom Live CD Name

Sep 10, 2009

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?

Ubuntu :: Alter Config Files After Install From Custom Live Cd?

Apr 24, 2011

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".

Debian Configuration :: Creating A Custom Live CD

Feb 24, 2016

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.

Software :: Tools For Building Custom Live CDs

Nov 12, 2010

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?

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove Install Option On Boot Custom Usb Live?

Jul 15, 2010

I used Ubuntu customization kit to "build" my own Ubuntu. It works as a charm. Completely recommended.

I install that custom ubuntu 10.04 on a 2gb pendrive, using usb-creator-gtk and it worked also good.

The only thing is bodering me, is when I boot that pendrive, it appear a window asking if I want to install the OS or if I want to use it live.

How can I remove that window on boot?

I want to boot directly on desktop...that way will be perfect!
