Is it possible to put more than one mini.iso on a CD? I have aging computers of both amd64 and i386 types that I'd like to put a minimal install on, and I don't think they'll boot from sticks. I've tried merging mini.iso files with your script and I get:
cp: cannot stat `/home/paulus/applications/MultiCD/temporary-mountpoints/386mini.ubuntu/casper': No such file or directory
I'm happy to peer under the hood and twiddle with the script, but after reading the last 10-15 pages of this thread, I wanted to ask if it's even possible first.
I updated to the latest version of MultiCD and tried my Spinrite and Dos Ver 3.3 & 6.22 images again.
The current version appears to work good with Spinrite Versions 5 & 6. I did find a small problem with
my Spinrite 5 Image and fixed it. So, in reference to Posting #266, my Spinrite Issues are fixed.
Also I see you included the Mepis Plugin, but you didn't update your Web Page for Supported Distro's
stating that it is also available.
NetbootCD, or just copy the ubuntu-mini.sh script and make some changes so the files don't overwrite each other.
First, great tool!
Just 2 questions.
1. Does ubuntu-12.04-server.iso supported, because DVD iso-s not include this image if i create with other iso-s?
2. If i generate iso DVD with ubuntu 12.04 and ubuntu 12.10 boot menus created without version number like this:
although version numbers are visible when creating the iso like this:
Ubuntu (32-bit) 12.10
Ubuntu (32-bit) 12.04
Sorry if already answered...
(I'll also edit ubuntu-alternate.sh so it can find the regular ISO filename, just like with ubuntu-alternate-12.04-i386.iso, etc.)
I tried to create a multicd.iso from
ubuntu-server (renamed ubuntu-alternate)
The "alternate" ISO images are the ones that use the text-based installer. ("server" images use that installer as well.) You can only have one of these Ubuntu text-based installers on a single disc, because the files conflict with each other, and I haven't been able to find a way to move them and still make it work.
With the "desktop" ISOS (the live CD installers), it's possible to move the files so they don't conflict; you can have as many of these as you like. I suggest you download the Lubuntu desktop CD (lubuntu-12.*-desktop-i386.iso) and use that instead.
P.S. MultiCD now detects "ubuntu-*-server-i386.iso" and "ubuntu-*-server-amd64.iso", and redirects them to ubuntu-alternate automatically.
