View Full Version : Spinning a Custom Live-CD

October 10th, 2007, 10:00 AM
Hi guys, I've been thinking about spinning my own LiveCD for a while now, but looking around it seems there are loads of ways to do it. Have any of you ever tried it and if so, what method would you recommend. The GUI-methods or the old-fashioned compressing a partition kinda thing?

What I need is a really light LiveCD with a few extra programs, but I don't need any office-functionality or games or anything like that.

Yeah, I've seen that - has anybody tried it? I'm not at home right now, so I'm gonna try it later.

What about SimplyMEPIS? They say on the site that it's ideal for spinning your own, but I can't find any info about what tools are included for it..

And what about Ibuild (http://ibuild.livecd.net/)?

Reconstructor looks great, but unfortunately I'm on Gutsy, so I can't use it.

I have Gutsy, SimplyMEPIS, Opensuse 10.3 and a custom NimbleX, so something based on one of those would be amazing..

Hasn't anybody ever tinkered with this? The reason I want to make one is to use at my university - They have locked down the XPs so nothing can be installed and I would like to be able to play MUDs on them, so I need a liveCD with a MUD client installed.
