Hi folks,
Has anyone written a bash script to create a bootable ISO
from Slackware Current?
Thanks.

He made a thing called 'liveslak'. Look for his iso2usb script and the instructions to use it and there you'll also find the latest current or other stuff tro try the script on.

If you want to create an installation ISO for current, look at this script: http://www.slackware.com/~alien/tool...are-current.sh
I have that scheduled as a daily cron job to sync with a remote mirror of -current and generate an ISO file:
Code:
mirror-slackware-current.sh -o DVD -q -X none
It has a help function too:
Code:
mirror-slackware-current.sh -h

From isolinux/README.TXT under a stable 14.2 and at the top level Slackware directory:
Code:
mkisofs -o /tmp/slackware-dvd.iso \
  -R -J -A "Slackware Install" \
  -hide-rr-moved \
  -v -d -N \
  -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table \
  -sort isolinux/iso.sort \
  -b isolinux/isolinux.bin \
  -c isolinux/isolinux.boot \
  -eltorito-alt-boot -no-emul-boot -eltorito-platform 0xEF \
  -eltorito-boot isolinux/efiboot.img \
  -m 'source' \
  -V "SlackDVD" .
