Big Mac Wizard rollin out another Winner!
This is a relatively easy-peasy script that will
create a ubuntu-9.10 bootable, installable iso
image featuring the awesome e17 Desktop!
1) A running Ubuntu-9.10 system or Livecd/usb
2) 2+ GB of free space on a ext2/3 partition
4) Your repositories for ubuntu setup, especially for
heres the sources.list I used, e17 repo is last one-
you can find most of that here
The script is mostly automatic
it will mount and copy iso to a folder
unsquashfs the mini-remix squashfs
then it will copy your existing /etc/resolv.conf, etc
and your running /etc/apt folder
it'll then chroot into the squashfs-root and update/upgrade
and then it will start installing whatever you want
and finishing up it will recreate the 9.10 system and make a nice iso image
note that at bootup you will have to configure e17 as I haven't yet got Xnest rollin to configure before making into iso...?
heres what happens at bootup on qemu and then after I installed it to a partition
after configuring on livecd
and then after installing to a partition
so, if possible I would like to do all that and then make it into a livecd
with e17 pre-configured...??
First you gotta EDIT the script for things like what packages you want installed, name of output iso, etc
so, basically make a folder on your Desktop
named "test" or whatever
put the mini-remix iso and "e17-build" script in test
cd into Desktop/test folder
chmod +x e17-build
to make it executable
and invoke script with
Anyway; here's the script; copy/paste that into new text file and save as "e17-build"
it will make a iso of about 600MB
add/remove what pkg's you want
and hopefully help me refine it??
play the iso in qemu too
heck, if you dont trust the script run it in Qemu too
