I read a forum regarding upgrading Ubuntu and customizing the live cd. There are something’s that I want to do with the live cd to customize it. I want to install software and change backgrounds, settings and such.
However the forum suggested something’s I needed to do in the forum. Some of these things lost me because they didn't work.
The things they help told me to do was....
Sudo Su in the terminal to the root level. Then check Linux mint for updates and downloads. Then it told me to download apt-get install remastsys or something along those lines. This would give me the ability to change my settings and then burn them as a live cd by creating an iso of my custom system. However when it finds the updates and such remastery or whatever isn't an option and that is as far as I can go with the project. I am starting to fall in love with Linux but I am still not ready to make a confident switch to Linux on my home desktop.
Ubuntu is amazing and I love it. I am wondering how can I get things going with my custom Ubuntu.
Things I want to better understand are
1.) Installing software’s such as updating Mozilla and other software such as open office.
2.) Customizing my background images and settings.
Here is an issue that i am having with customizing Ubuntu 7.10
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
remastersys: Depends: mkisofs (>= 0.0-0) but it is not installable
E: Broken packages
I am not sure what i am doing wrong. I am trying to learn how to make my own custome ubuntu with programs that i use. I don't really don't care what the file size is. I want to create a live cd that is custome for my own purposes. I would be so thankful to anyone who can help me understand these things.
