    Re: multicd.sh - combine Linux ISOS into one

    I put version 5.1 up on the website. It adds Endian Firewall and CDlinux, fixes a bug that made it so Ubuntu was nameless on the menu, and makes Slax changes default. The .tar.gz version also comes with SYSLINUX so you don't have to download it every time.

    Re: multicd.sh - combine Linux ISOS into one

    Thanks for your work with this script!

    I have just used it to build:

    diskcopy
    ntpasswd
    pmagic
    sysrcd
    tinycore
    ubcd

    Here is what happens on startup for all except ubcd:
    All have several screens with hexadecimal readout each line followed by:
    .ERROR: idle with IF=0
    After half a minute of this they all go into normal boot (except diskcopy which drops to command prompt).

    Perhaps it is a bad burn, but I am not so sure.

    Thanks for any guidance.

    Tony

    That's happened to me on certain computers. I think it's a problem with SYSLINUX itself. If it still boots, it should be fine.

    Cool Re: multicd.sh - combine Linux ISOS into one

    I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction. I'm relatively new to this environment, and have just installed Xubuntu 9.10. I followed the instructions by creating a folder for building the image at /home/fontman/multicd

    I renamed the files to:
    antix.iso
    clonezilla.iso
    efw.iso
    knoppix.iso
    pmagic.iso
    sysrcd.iso
    ubuntu.iso

    When I run sudo ./multicd*.sh I get
    sudo: unable to execute ./multicd-5.1.sh: No such file or directory

    Are there certain dev tools I need or permissions?

    Apologies if this is wrong area to ask...

    Re: multicd.sh - combine Linux ISOS into one

    First right click on that script file and select properties. Go to the permissions tab and make sure the box is checked to allow it to execute.
    Next problem may be as follows;
    You aren't in the correct directory when you are trying to execute that script.

    Open a terminal and type this;

    cd ./fontman/multicd

    Now type this;

    dir

    It should show the the script file in that directory listing.
    If it does try executing that file with that command..

    Thumbs down Re: multicd.sh - combine Linux ISOS into one

    Hi,

    I just used multicd.sh 5.1 on a Debian Etch system (mkisofs 9:1.1.2-1) to combine Clonezilla 1.2.3-27, GParted 0.5.1-1, and memtest into one image.

    Unfortenately, memtest is the only system I can start.

    The Clonezilla entry in the initial boot menu opens the Clonezilla menu. But only the "back to main menu" entry works. Nothing happens if I select any of the others and hit enter or wait for the 30 seconds to tick down.

    None of the three GParted entries in menu the seems to trigger anything.

    I must be doing something wrong. I'm hoping for your assistance...

    Re: multicd.sh - combine Linux ISOS into one

    I'm impressed with the concept. I hashed one together and it worked well. I removed Ubuntu and put in Linux mint. As the script runs, I get this error:

    cp: cannot stat `linuxmint/drivers': No such file or directory

    And the process stops, leaving the linuxmint iso mounted (and unmountable). Hmmmm.

    Should I cheat and call Mint Ubuntu?


    PS: PCLOS would be nice too!

    For the Linux Mint bug, try changing this line:
    Code:
    cp -R linuxmint/drivers multicd-working/ #Drivers added by the Mint team
    with this line:
    Code:
    if [ -d linuxmint/drivers ];then cp -R linuxmint/drivers multicd-working/;fi #Drivers added by the Mint team
    The line is in plugins/linuxmint.sh if you downloaded the .tar.gz, or if you downloaded the single file it's somewhere in there.
    And yes, PCLinuxOS would be a good idea. There's a plugin written by PsynoKhi0 for the LXDE version, but I just found a bug in that too, so I'll fix that and then see if it works with regular PCLOS.

    Re: multicd.sh - combine Linux ISOS into one

    can it support multiple architectures? Like arch64 and arch i686? Because that'd be super handy.

    Re: multicd.sh - combine Linux ISOS into one

    It certainly could as far as I know. You would need another plugin .sh to have both a 32-bit and a 64-bit version on the same disc. The hard part is that since they'll probably have the same folder names on both versions, one version has to be renamed and then be modified so it can find itself.
    Does anyone know how to have more than one Ubuntu 9.10-based distro on one disc? I thought I had it working with 9.04 but they must have changed something with casper.
