Wink Want to build my own Slackware Live CD !


My Own Slackware on a CDROM!
I just got the through the day with getting a Vector Linux Live CD setup to help me in emergencies. Kind of overkill but hey, if you got to send in the Marines, might as well go in style!

I've hatched a plan to copy the contents of the Live CD onto a partition on the hard disk hoping to boot that partition.

Why do this? you might ask!
I want to add the gparted utility to it and then burn it onto a CD so that it becomes more than just a rescue cd. But one that I can use to resize partitions much like my system commander utility use to be. I'm having trouble booting Vector's vmlinuz:

Code:
root@slackware:/home/perry# ls /mnt/vl/boot -la
total 7020
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root    4096 2006-03-08 23:03 ./
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root    4096 2007-09-08 20:01 ../
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root    4096 2006-02-01 05:31 DOS/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root    4096 2006-06-02 09:03 grub/
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 4756129 2006-03-08 15:09 initrd*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root  205473 2006-02-15 14:55 initrd.real
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root   99784 2006-02-01 05:31 memtest*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root    5772 2006-02-01 05:31 splash.bmp.gz*
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 2066150 2006-02-01 05:31 vmlinuz
root@slackware:/home/perry#
If I can't get any satisfaction out if, I'll start all over from scratch with a Slackware install. Which might suck in that I'd have to learn all the lessons Vector is currently employing to figure out devices and video cards and such.

There must be an easy way to do this. Once I am able to boot the Vector partition from the hard disk, I'm hoping to add the gparted utility to it and customize from there. Once that is done, i'll do a mkisofs out of the partition and burn a CD!

Seems like a simple plan... real simple!

Anybody got any recommendations or any ideas as to why Vector does not want to load it's kernel properly. I've tried the following configurations from inside my Slackware 12 installation. Here's my lilo.conf:

Code:
# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
#
# Start LILO global section
boot = /dev/hda
compact        # faster, but won't work on all systems.

Is it possible to get Lilo on MBR to boot a Grub install on /dev/hda2 ?

It would so cool!

Thumbs up This is why I love Linux!

Where there is a will there is a way!
This is why I fell in love with Linux... the moment you want something, it appears!

Quote:
Linux Live is a set of shell scripts which allows you to create own Live Linux from your installed Linux distribution. The Live system you create will be bootable from CD-ROM or a disk device, for example USB Flash Drive, USB Pen Drive, Camera connected to USB port, and so on. People use Linux Live scripts to boot Linux from iPod as well.



How to build a Live distro:

1)
Install your favourite distro to disk partition, or into a folder on your existing system.

Slackware is recommended but not required.

2)
Build aufs kernel module and squashfs kernel module (optionally patched to support LZMA)

The step above is not required if you use precompiled Linux Kernel from this website

Install kernel modules to the newly installed distro to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/fs/.

Make sure you are running the same kernel you used to compile modules

3)
Remove all unnecessary files (for example man pages and all other files you don't need),

to make your Live Linux system as small as possible (this step is optional).

4)
Download Linux Live scripts from this website and unpack it in /tmp

Read ./DOC/requirements.txt to find out what linux-live scripts need

Edit .config file if you need to modify some variables

5)
Finally login as root and run ./build

Live distribution's 'directory tree' will be created in /tmp/live_data_1234

where 1234 is a random number

6)
To make ISO image, run make_iso.sh

To make a bootable (usb) disk, run bootinst.sh



Working example

If you're just looking for a working Linux Live system, visit www.slax.org



Download e-book

Luc Parson wrote a nice e-book called Creating your own Linux Live CD, which provides a step by step installation manual for creating a Linux Live CD based on Slackware Linux and Linux Live scripts 6.0.7 (PDF 260KB). I didn't read it so use at your own risk
cheers

Ironically enough, the Linux Live scripts were written by the creator of Slax, which is considered by many to be the most pre-eminent Slackware live implementation.

Wink Eureka!!!

He's Alive - Weird Science!
Code:
# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /mnt/vl/boot/vmlinuz
  initrd = /mnt/vl/boot/initrd
  root=/dev/ram0
  append="init=/linuxrc max_loop=255  load_ramdisk=1 prompt_ramdisk=0 ramdisk_size=4444 rw"
  # splash=silent
  label = vector
  read-only  # Partitions should be mounted read-only for checking
  vga=791
# Linux bootable partition config ends
Make sure to have the VectorLinux cdrom out of the drive so that it's initrd looks elsewhere for a VectorLinux install...

AND IT WORKED!!!! IT BOOTED OFF /DEV/HDA2!!!!

The sweet part was where I took the 'splash=slient' out and was greeted with this lovely startup splash showing me all the dmesg info. Now if only I could have that for Slackware 12!

Now the next mission is to figure out how to install gparted onto it, and perhaps wireless (& wireless detection) and then it's off to burn a Live CD. Given it's nature, I think I'll be making space by removing OpenOffice from it, that should give me about 100 MB to play with! Figuring out how Vector is storing everything is the mystery after that.

It's fun!

Wink ndiswrapper rc.wlan0 from inside VectorLinux!

hey guys, it worked!
had to do a reboot, perhaps because i didn't remove the previous ndiswrapper that came with vector first... but i'm here communicating to you from inside my hard disk installed VectorLinux...
Code:
Installed ndis drivers:
2802w		driver present 
airplus		driver present 
bcmwl5		driver present 
gplus		driver present 
mrv8ka51		driver present 
net8180		driver present 
netadm11		driver present 
netdlwl		driver present 
ntpr11ab		driver present 
rt2500usb		driver present, hardware present 
w70n51		driver present
seems Vector depends heavily on ndiswrapper!

now on to the next goal... get gparted installed!!!!

cheers

gparted wants gtk

i don't know if it's possible to get a kde-gtk patch or something but there doesn't seem to be any end of the packages that gparted wants, so i'll just have to hold on that one for a while, too bad kde doesn't have a graphical partitioning tool, or do they...!

They do, they do. QTParted.

I will admit, however, that the last time I did hard drive partitioning, I used Gparted. I believe it was something like three or four packages by the time I got done... I used the Slackbuild(s).

EDIT: According to the QTParted project page, it's still maintained by the folks at Ark Linux... but, the date on the page is 2005. I'll look into getting the source code and seeing if I can update the thing... but for now, you're probably better off with Gparted, much as I hate to say it. You'll need the following Slackbuilds:
Gparted itself
gtkmm
cairomm
glibmm
libsigc++

I forget now what order I had to build in... I think it was libsigc++, glibmm, cairomm, gtkmm, gparted. Also, don't forget to include parted itself, available from any Slack 12 mirror.

Cool thread on building a boot linux cd from scratch!

Making a Bootable Linux CD
I'm placing it here for future reference. In learning how to boot off a cd (no easy matter) I might as well be planning my own operating system....

Hey, it really works!

To create a burnable ISO image do the following:
Code:
 ./build-initrd.sh
 ./build-root.sh
 ./make-iso.sh
The resulting pbcd.iso can be burned easily taking up a whopping 3 Meg on the cdrom! Giving you a bootable cd!

Because it works, it's worth disecting!

Wink RescueCD Version 1.0

Coming to you Live from RescueCD Version 1.0
Managed to create a custom VectorLinux CD! It has the ability to connect via wireless! I've also customized it's grub to allow a more informative boot splash by removing the "splash=slient" from each of the menu items! Makes for a very entertaining bootup... shame they don't do that by default!

QtParted installed and ready to go!!!
This package looks nice and has some bells and whistles but not as good as gparted!

Get SLAX!

This looks promising! A decent Slackware install and only 1/3 of the CD used up. I need the extra space to get gparted installed properly. Which looks like it'll require large portions of gnome.

Faster d/l location!

Need to try Enlightenment!

Review on Enlightenment 16/17
Haven't used Enlightenment since early Mandrake 9.0/9.1

I'm sure it's after going thru some changes since then

Cool Mission Accomplished!

Downloaded VectorLinux's Standard 5.1 and you never guess what...!

It comes with gparted already installed!

I already took the opportunity to add my wireless support under /boot/optional. Now thinking of adding a few things to dress it up a little bit more as I have about 17 meg to play with!

Saves me a day of configuring, I now have a real rescue cd that I can use to deal with any problems should booting off the hard disk run into problems!

Cheers

A tip for those readers who like to use Slackware and its tools rather than "other" distros:
If you are in need of a bootable CD with a disk partition editor, and you are not afraid of the command line, then you can use the Slackware 12.0 install CD too.
It comes equipped with parted, the command-line tool whose function library is also used by the graphical tool gparted.
