Question how does one combine all binary files from live-build into an iso image?


Hi I have successfully build a live image in ubuntu mode using Colin Watson's directives by linking:

ln -sf /usr/share/livecd-rootfs/live-build/auto/* auto/

lb clean lb config lb build

Build worked and I have the following files in my build directory: drwxr-xr-x 4 root root

drwxr-xr-x 3 root root

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root

drwxr-xr-x 5 root root

drwxr-xr-x 22 root root

drwxr-xr-x 22 root root

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root

-rw-r--r-- 2 root root 14973230 Sep 15 13:06 livecd.ubuntu.initrd-generic lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root

-rw-r--r-- 2 root root

-rw-r--r-- 2 root root

-rw-r--r-- 2 root root

-rw-r--r-- 2 root root

-rw-r--r-- 2 root root 687726592 Sep 15 13:06 livecd.ubuntu.squashfs

How do I combine the squashed file system, kernel boot manager into an iso or img file? Thanks very much any help would be appreciated.

I used the latest live-build and ran it on ubuntu precise amd64.
Thanks Rob Key

Use mkisofs or its clone, genisoimage, maybe?!

Thanks, i forgot about genisoimage. I did manage to build a live debian image though. I guess the ubuntu image will be the same as using usb-creator and writing the iso image to a usb stick. I will check the man page of genisoimage.
