uh, though I havent really written any how-tos on it
I'll walk you thru it though
seems your running mint/buntu?
go grab the necessities from synaptic
a good text editor i prefer the combo of PCMANFM/leafpad as you just right-click in filemanager window
and select "open terminal here",etc
instead of cd /somewhere/overthere
a ext2/3 partition of at least 8-10GB
to stop/prevent spagetti editing and such
make a folder named "image"
and a folder named "test"
Ill wait till you come back and post to tell more
I'm free today so i suggest you be around
Heres some of my goodies
heres a cool multipup
grub2 ubuntu dvd
so, come back and we'll get started
looks like you can add more distros too to get to 4+gb DVD?
EDIT: your Mint 1gb iso is kinda big
did you remove old kernels,etc?
did you do apt-get clean/aptitude purge,etc before remastersys?
you can also mksquashfs the /usr/share/doc folder
cd into /usr/share and do
mksquashfs doc docz.squashfs
and it'll compress the doc folder
then delete everything in doc folder and put
the squashed doc folder in there.
Also, the initial remastersys squashfs is bloated for some reason?
if you unsquashfs the squashfs remastersys makes
then just resquashfs it with
mksquashfs squashfs-root filesystem.squashfs
it will be about 50-70mb less
