bodhibuilder in 5.0


i found myself in a situation where i could use a live usb with some specific utilities installed and that reminded me of bodhibuilder which i used a couple times on my old 4.5 install. originally i came to ask if it was still a part of 5.0 when i thought to search for it in the quick launcher. i'm glad to see it is there just wanted to say thanks for keeping it around and including such a useful tool in an otherwise already very useful distro

Sounds needs, never used it. It makes a custom live usb?

exactly. it created an iso of my specific system which i then wrote to a usb. that way i had the tools i have already downloaded and come to rely on for my system to help me take a look at a friend's ailing win7 system. bodhibuilder even gave me the choice of loading my user profile (including password) which probably would have been advisable if i were taking it anywhere. pretty cool set of options, all in all

otherwise i was looking at creating a persistent live usb and then having to install the utilities i needed before being able to get to work. bodhibuilder saved me plenty of time and energy

for the record, i only knew about the existence of bodhibuilder because it was listed under system tools applications in bodhi 4.5. on my 5.0 machine i had to launch the quick launcher, type in bodhibuilder and it was the second choice from the left listed as bodhibuilder-gtk. can also be launched from the terminal with sudo bodhibuilder-gtk

It's pre-installed under system tools on my 5.0 64-bit and legacy systems, not sure why it wasn't there for you. Perhaps its not in apppack version but that would be odd since it's the version with the most apps...

Either way, I'll give it a try. It's got me wondering, can I use bodhibuilder to make my liveusb, then use that liveusb to run bodhibuilder to install it onto a hard drive of another computer? I have another computer I'm thinking of putting bodhi on, be kinda cool to start with it all preconfigured my way. (Although half the fun is reconfiguring everything, always discover something new).

edit: Prolly better to start clean anyway, nevermind that idea.

i just checked and it isn't listed on my legacy install either, though it can be launched. on this one (my 64-bit system) i did go with the apppack version. like you said, not sure why it isn't listed, but i am glad it is available

i think you are probably right about a clean install. i was wondering about drivers (though i'm not entirely sure how the builder deals with them) when you mentioned the clone idea. maybe if all machines were the exact same hardware?
