Ubuntu Hardy Heron Live CD Customization


Hi,

I'm trying to customize a live cd of Hardy Heron following these instructions:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization


I have managed to remove/add packages, change the default language and wallpaper. But I could not change the default login user or even change the contents of its home folder. The file I'm working is:

edit/usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/casper
Code:
USERNAME=great
USERFULLNAME="Live session user"
HOST=globus
BUILD_SYSTEM=Custom
Changed the lines above. Also I'm trying to change /etc/hosts in the file

edit/usr/share/initramfs-tools/scripts/casper-bottom/18hostname

And it doesn't work. Seems to me that, whatever changes I made on these files, during the boot process they are somehow reverted. Has anybody done this kind of setup with Hardy Heron?

Did you remember to rebuild the initramfs and initrd?
Did you rebuild the manifest.

Try using one of the tools - like UCK or reconstructor.

I wouldn't be surprised if hardy is sufficiently different from dapper that those old instructions no longer work.

Yes, I did it. Just like the tutorial says.

I wouldn't like to use an automated tool, I'll try a little harder. What i'd really like is a source of documentation about casper, see how it works and etc. If I don't suceed anyway, I'll look at these tools. Thanks for the tips.
