View Full Version : [SOLVED] use remastersys without installing nautilus, other apps, etc

July 24th, 2009, 04:46 PM
I'm trying to use remastersys in the way intended: to make a custom iso from my ubuntu installation. However, when I install remastersys, it pulls in a large number of gnome programs. So.... I use

sudo apt-get install remastersys --no-install-recommendsto stop that. However, it keeps pulling in nautilus and a few other gnome apps. Since I'm using a ubuntu installation that uses icewm as a simple, optional window manager (the os only loads the command line at boot) I don't want nautilus, or anything gnome-related. I only want an iso of my current installation, with as little extra junk installed with remastersys as possible. How can I do this? I'm trying to keep this within CD size, too, so all the added stuff is a real problem.

EDIT: Solved in a different thread. I'll post it here for archival purposes. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1216130
