How to turn my modified Crunchbang into an ISO?

I am running #! on a laptop the college has given me but for some reason the college is only giving me this laptop for one year when I'm doing a 4 year course. They want to take it back and give me a new one at the end of the year (don't ask why as I have no idea and can't make scene of it)

I have done a bit of configuring of my #! and will probably do a lot more before I'm done with it. How can I turn what I'm using at the moment into a bootable ISO that I can install onto another laptop and VMware. So that when I have to give it back I get to keep my configurations. Sorry if its a stupid question but its something I have never looked into doing before now.

Remastersys is an excellent tool to do what you need

Re: How to turn my modified Crunchbang into an ISO?

hemm.. I'm hitting this wall:



Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 remastersys : Depends: live-initramfs but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

What am I doing wrong? I did install squashfs-modules and aufs-modules and unionfs-modules.

I have the updated Kernel.
Could it be that I still have my old kernel still on my system (I am aware that at the moment my install is over the 4G limit due to the old kernel still being there I don't currently know how to uninstall it)


EDIT I should also add I did:


# Remastersys Lenny
deb http://www.remastersys.com/repository debian/


# Remastersys Squeeze
deb http://www.remastersys.com/repository squeeze/

and did a sudo apt-get get updated after

You are running Waldorf?

At the Remastersys site are instructions for what repos to use for Wheezy packages

Re: How to turn my modified Crunchbang into an ISO?

Ahh yes I see what I did wrong. I was stupid and just grabbed the packages marked for debain and did not pay attention to what they where actually for >.<   sorry for doing something so obvious...


Sorry to keep bothering you on this but I'm stumped.

I installed this on VMware to test out the remastersys initially before installing and running it on my main OS. All I have done is installed Java, 3.7.6 kernel, virtual box and remastersys yet I'm using over 4G's of space. What am I running thats taking up SO much space.
When I initially installed it was only on about 2G's if even. Unless I did something REALLY stupid I'm totally confused. How can I force it back below the 4G limit?

I did run the sudo apt-get purge command and removed what it suggested, I have now uninstalled java and gimp so I'm at 4.59GB's

Re: How to turn my modified Crunchbang into an ISO?

^ Now you find the issue with any tool you use to build an ISO... I did a search for reduce + size + ISO and found several links between Debian and the Remastersys forums that helped... specifically localepurge and bleachbit will be helpful

Keep at it, you just have to find what you have and do not need to reduce the size.

machinebacon is another source who has dealt with these and may be here to help as well
