How to burn on DVD a custom recompile Kernel ?


Hi all,

I try to found an answer for this first but have not.

Here's the thing : I freshly recompile a kernel whit new modules ( 2.6.9-67 Oracle Linux Enterprise 4) and what I want to do is just burn to DVD my new linux for future installation on different computers.

I'm sure it's nothing complicated but what's the appropriate method for this ?


Thanks for all the answers.

Here's my idea how you can do it;
Insert CD/DVD where you've copied your system,unmount it if it's mounted automatically and then create CD/DVD iso image with command;
Code:
# dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/tmp/2.6.9-67_Oracle_Linux_Enterprise_4.iso
Where,
if=/dev/cdrom
: read from /dev/cdrom(rawformat)
of=/tmp/2.6.9-67_Oracle_Linux_Enterprise_4.iso
: write to file; 2.6.9-67_Oracle_Linux_Enterprise_4.iso i.e. create an ISO image.Then you can burn that iso image and use it for hard disk installations.

Thanks Alan.

I understand the process but whit the command you said it will create an image FROM the CDROM ( if=/dev/cdrom). Me , I want to create an ISO whit my entire linux system and then burn this ISO to DVD.

Unless I misunderstood something.

Do you know the exact way to backup an entire system that you will be able to use to make a bootable ISO ?

I don't think you can just copy your entire system and then make and ISO that will boot like an origial DVD linux installation. It's just not the same structure.

In fact, I think it's just not possible.

Linux guru and everyone , correct me .

Thanks for your answer Alan

Your system should be configured in a way that when you burn that iso image to CD/DVD you will have a working system on that CD/DVD,meaning you can boot into it and use it,but that's another story,for that go here and here.
