Hi all. I've been using Remastersys for many years to make backups for myself and to share custom installations with friends. I however encountered a problem with (x)buntu 11.10. The ISO is created perfectly, but when booting it (either in a VM or on the main PC from a DVD), it hangs at the first line and does not display the liveCD GUI menu. This happened on my pc with all Remastersys versions after 2.015. The earlier versions did not have a liveCD GUI and the text based selection works, but even the new version 3 of Remastersys did not boot past the first line.
The problem is due to the syslinx files. When you have different versions of syslinux files on the PC (VMware for instance has it's own version), Remastersys possibly links to the incorrect version.
The fix is easy - put the following in an executable file (I called mine "Remastersys_Fix.sh"), run it and Remastersys works correctly again and boots the ISO into the liveCD GUI
sudo cp /usr/lib/syslinux/isolinux.bin /etc/remastersys/customisolinux
sudo cp /usr/lib/syslinux/vesamenu.c32 /etc/remastersys/customisolinux
sudo cp /etc/remastersys/isolinux/isolinux.cfg.vesamenu /etc/remastersys/customisolinux/
sudo mv /etc/remastersys/customisolinux/isolinux.cfg.vesamenu /etc/remastersys/customisolinux/isolinux.cfg
sudo cp /etc/remastersys/isolinux/splash.png /etc/remastersys/customisolinux/
You can naturally use your own "splash.png"
