    Create a custom ISO

    Hi there.
    I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that you need an iso to create a livecd, and that the livecd is based on this iso.

    Is there a way to create an iso of my current desktop setup, like taking a picture of my panels, settings, installed applications, etc., and package it into a single iso file I can use to create a startup disk?

    or re-linux which is a fork of remastersys

    You could also if you want an exact copy take a clone using clonezilla, but cloning it back depends on destination size of HDD and you may have issues if the hardware has changed

    Re: Create a custom ISO

    Ok, I downloaded re-linux, and I immediately ran into an error during installation.

    I entered the code:
    Code:
    sudo cp -R usr etc /
    like the installation instructions told me to do, and I got some errors:
    Code:
    sudo cp -R usr etc /
    [sudo] password for alden: 
    cp: cannot stat `usr': No such file or directory
    cp: cannot stat `etc': No such file or directory
    Why is it telling me this? Or am I supposed to be running this code while in my Relinux folder, where I extracted the .tar.gz file?

    you need to specify paths.

    etc is /etc usr is /usr

    you need to specify where things are

    as for re-linux i dont know i have never used it, i am sure there is instructions there somewhere


    I just downloaded it it wants you to copy the extracted folders, so you need to do it from within the extracted folder, use nautilus or specify the paths

    Re: Create a custom ISO

    umm...what?

    I tried running the command from the folder where I had extracted the files, and everything seemed to run fine.

    Is that what you said?
