Help with a couple of cool Scripts?


OK

I use and include ClamAV livecd(ubuntu based) in lots of my downloads

I found a cool ass script that mounts the iso, and unsquashfs's the clamav squashfs
updates the clam definititons, etc
and then squashfs's the clam squashfs and rebuilds the iso

cool, huh?
http://www.feedingthemachine.com/200...te-script.html


Now, I want to go further and have it update clam and Make a ubuntu livecd
basically make the script so I can add xorg, fluxbox, etc and have a live system

Any thoughts on How to Do it??


Script#2

The puppy remaster script-

see it here
http://multidistro.com/shots/remasterpupiso_v2

Now, I can't seem to get the script to copy anything but the puppy stuff

Code:
Xdialog --wrap --title "Puppy simple CD remaster" --msgbox "Copying files from CD to $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/, please wait..." 0 0 &
XPID=$!
rm -rf $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild #precaution
mkdir $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild
#now copy the files...
   sync
   cp $CDMNTPT/isolinux.bin $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/
   sync
   cp $CDMNTPT/isolinux.cfg $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/
   sync
   cp $CDMNTPT/boot.msg $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/ 2> /dev/null
   sync
   cp $CDMNTPT/goofy.16 $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/ 2> /dev/null
   sync
   cp $CDMNTPT/vmlinuz $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/
   sync
   cp $CDMNTPT/initrd.gz $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/
   sync
   #v2.12...
   [ -f $CDMNTPT/zdrv_$PUPPYVERSION.sfs ] && cp -af $CDMNTPT/zdrv_$PUPPYVERSION.sfs $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/
   sync

umount $CDMNTPT 2> /dev/null
I am trying to add a folder or file
like a boot folder-
Code:
cp $CDMNTPT/boot $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/
   sync
no matter what though, it won't copy anything but what's already in the script?
why?

How do I edit script so it will add any files/folders I want??

So, two questions

1) Help with clam update script-
Is there a way to make it build a livecd desktop??

2) Help with Puppy remaster script-
How to get script to add extra files/folders to iso build??


P.S.
To use puppy remaster script
place script in /root/my-documents in puppy(running livecd/usb)

Place puppy iso image of your choice in /root/my-documents
and rename it to puppy.iso

click script and it's GUI driven from there

Any issues please post

Alright, gang
please help me

You need to create the folder
Code:
mkdir $WKGMNTPT/puppylivecdbuild/boot
Then you can copy files to the folder

Look at the error messages you receive, they are a good indication what goes wrong.

BTW, did you solved the problem with makeiso.bat ?

Hey Repo,

what I meant was

I made a livecd remaster of puupy

I then added a boot folder
and some files to the puppy folder

I want the script to copy evertything inside puppy folder to remaster folder

but, it will only copy the puppy stuff, vmlinuz, initrd.gz and the pup.sfs

?

Why won't it copy anything else?
