Slackware Linux Live DVD?


I'm trying to create a Slackware Linux Live bootable DVD/USB.
I've tried two kernels. The first I hand patched for aufs and probably messed things up. The usb distro would load up until it tried to mount the first fs branch (bin.sbo) and then freeze. Later I found better aufs patches for the 3.10 tree, this time it doesn't even see the linux live files and just drops me into an initrd environment shell.

There's a number of related aufs patches. Should any be left out specifically for linux live scripts to work?

Also, there's a number of aufs kernel configuration options. Should any of those specifically be included or left out for a linux live distro? (I'm specifically wondering about aufs for loop, aufs for fuse, aufs for initrd). Do I need to alter the max number of branches?

Thanks!

I've personalized my slackware install into a multimedia/audio/studio oriented distro. Slax is too generic for what I'm wanting.

I think for some people will be interesting what are your custom software to make Slackware a multimedia/audio/studio distro.

So are you building something like Slackermedia, just pre-build ISO?

If you do multimedia studio setup, look into JACK at slackbuilds.org as a low-level audio server. You won't be disappointed.

Yes, using this:
http://www.linux-live.org/

Except that I want to use my own kernel. Their faq is rather vague. If anyone knows of a better solution, that would be great too. I have successfully done this before with older linux live scripts and unionfs.

Any feedback about Tux2live and Slackware?
Quote:
Tux2live is toolkit to build your Linux live environment from what you installed in hard disk and it's easy to customize and configure.

Thanks, I'll check it out if it comes back up.

It's not just you! http://www.tux2live.org looks down from here.
Remastersys is too ubuntu (installer) oriented for us to use. I couldn't find source for the pclinuxos version.

Just adding to @mrapathy's list

1. slax,
2. SalixOS,
3. Porteus

not necessarily in any order works beautifully as Slackware extensions

Porteus looks like something could work nicely here:

Plain remastersys is available on Sourceforge from here, if you are looking for it.

Hello jon lee

What do you want to achieve? A remaster for personal use or a distro for sharing?

If a remaster, why wont a different bootloader work and forget AUFS?

If a distro there are many questions, probably all too off topic for this forum.

I will oblige somewhat.

Here is what I use in my .config;
Code:
CONFIG_AUFS_FS=m
CONFIG_AUFS_BRANCH_MAX_127=y
# CONFIG_AUFS_BRANCH_MAX_511 is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_BRANCH_MAX_1023 is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_BRANCH_MAX_32767 is not set
CONFIG_AUFS_SBILIST=y
CONFIG_AUFS_HNOTIFY=y
CONFIG_AUFS_HFSNOTIFY=y
# CONFIG_AUFS_EXPORT is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_RDU is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_PROC_MAP is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_SP_IATTR is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_SHWH is not set
CONFIG_AUFS_BR_RAMFS=y
CONFIG_AUFS_BR_FUSE=y
CONFIG_AUFS_POLL=y
CONFIG_AUFS_BR_HFSPLUS=y
CONFIG_AUFS_BDEV_LOOP=y
# CONFIG_AUFS_DEBUG is not set
Possibly CONFIG_AUFS_EXPORT=y could be a good one to add. You'd be mad to add more than 127 branches except for experimentation IMHO. I only ever use 6.
Of course this all depends on initrd support AND compiling the generic linux patched with the patches from Junjiro Okajima (they apply cleanly as tested on 3.10.5), not his patched linux which makes AUFS builtin. I do have scripts for this however I will not publish them here as it is far too off topic.
Are you mounting directories or squashfs?
Ask questions on the AUFS mailing list, Junjiro is usually responsive to genuine problems.

Of course you compiled aufs-utils against the kernel headers for userspace too didn't you?

Regards.
