    Installing Mint Linux

    You gave some instruction, but I still need some help.

    First how do I create a alternative ISO. I looked at the meta link files for other alternative ISOs. There appears to be a number hashes that need to be created. Is there software that can generate this file based off a current iso of mint linux?

    Second you told me to modify items in the wubi/src directory. I do not find the directories, so I presume that I need the source of wubi, modify those files and recompile. If this is the case then where can I find the source code? Second what is needed to compile the source code on linux?

    Thanks!

    http://hampus.vox.nu/metalink/

    https://code.launchpad.net/~lupin-team/wubi/devel

    to grab the code:

    bzr branch http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~lupin-team/wubi/devel

    note that when compiling you also need to have a (compiled) lupin branch. Lupin must be compiled using the same kernel that will be used in the target ISO.

    bzr branch http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~lupin-team/lupin/devel

    cd ~/src/lupin/devel
    make
    cd ~/src/wubi/devel
    make
    make test

    Second what is needed to compile the source code on linux?
    wine + makensis, but if you run make from within wubi, it will install the for you.

    I might be wrong, but I don't think LM has an alternate ISO? In that case, having a metalink for the normal ISO wouldn't help.
