I am aware that linux is not so extension dependent like windows is ... but ... Thanks for the tip & reminder ! ...
here are some more info :
... after doing a custom build, with suse studio.. I ended up with a file just like the one I told you about ! ...
locally, with the help of KIWI ... ended up with one just like it too ... !
old suse distros ( like the 10.0 named SUSE OSS ) did not have these big files .. back then ... they were using archive type files !
so it was easy to customize the CD/DVDs and do what I wished to do ... but now .... since the 11.0 versions
these files are on all live CDs or DVDs.
so .. I want to use another approach .... can you help me with finding a command to open up one of these files so I can experiment ..and eventually .. possibly ..really do what I am trying to do !
by doing the file command, the response I got is :
" data " ... that's all !
I took your suggestion with the "file" command in my custom_image directory and this is what I got !
donald@linux-vzxf:/tmp/custom_image> file Boyo-Linux-1.01-live-iso-read-only.i686-2.5.2
I get the same result with openSUSE-kde-11.4-livecd-kde-read-only.i686-2.8.0
it says : data
that's it !
