Ubuntu Livecd Modifications


I found an article that gives instructions on how to customize a an Ubuntu Livecd and I am giving it a try. The process went pretty much uneventful until the middle of the 3rd page. It says:

"7 Finish the modified filesystem"

"First update the manifest file to reflect the modified packages:"

"$ sudo chroot $WORK/new dpkg-query -W --showformat='${Package} ${Version}\n' \"
"> $WORK/ubuntu-livecd/casper/filesystem.manifest"

I type it in my terminal just like that and I get this:

no packages found matching /home/ken/mylivecd/ubuntu-livecd/casper/filesystem.manifest.

Am I doing something wrong? I dont want to skip any steps but I would also like to finish the 7th step before I have to leave work. I have followed this article closely but I do not understand what the problem is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The keyword is remastering here. Do a google search on "remastering Ubuntu Knoppix" and you will know.

However, remastering a Livecd is now a thing for the past. Trying catch the new wave -- create a Livecd for your own without remastering -- all you need is a single command!!!

So remastering livecd's are old news and creating custom livecd's is the big thing now. I will definitely give grml a shot after I finish up with my livecd. What I am doing now is nothing but a test to see if it works and what I can do with it afterwards. When it comes to custom linux distributions I will accept any advice and recommendations. I am still relatively new to Linux and so all the things that are old news are like new news to me. I appreciate the tip on grml and I will definitely give it a shot. Thx for the info.

Ive finished with the livecd and the Live session user is now the owner with read and write permissions. I want the ubuntu installation to be as small as possible. If I could I would like to install just the livecd to my hard drive with nothing downloaded. I cannot find the config file that lists what packages are downloaded during the installation. Anyone know where it is? I have been to sources.list in /etc/apt but it didnt have what I was looking for. I appreciate any suggestions.

To list all installed packages, use

Code:
dpkg -l
See package listing.
