Re: Fiddling with the Waldorf iso ... for fun n profit! UPDATED!

Thank you CBizgreat! for full and easy guide.

I was trying to make my own fork of #! and it is work in progress but usable. The only one thing is that I need to do update-initramfs on squash-fs from iso and I am using 64bit system but the edited iso is 32bit. How can I do that?

I replaced a lot of programs with command line and a lot of files with thunar (configs and stuff). Everything worked just fine. But when i installed plymouth and my own theme. I should now update-initramfs to apply change.

I tried to do that myself but it detects my running -amd64- kernel. Of course everything is in chroot environment with mounted all /dev /proc ...etc.

update-initramfs -u
update-initramfs -u -k all
update-initramfs -u -k `(specified 32bit kernel)`

none of them worked and I had to unsquashfs from iso again cuz there were errors that I couldn't figure out.

uname -porn ;P

gives me

crunchbang 3.2.0-4-amd64 unknown GNU/Linux

I will make liveusb 32 bit version to update-initramfs from the live session but not sure if they run same kernel and if the error is kernel arch related or kernel version related or both. I Will post if that will work!

Yes it kinda worked. Remember if you are making 32-bit version use 32-bit system too.

Re: Fiddling with the Waldorf iso ... for fun n profit! UPDATED!

What about installing the 32-bit version on a small partition, and do it from there? Makes it a lot easier...

This guide worked fine for me, but upgrading to a new release in chroot and make a usable iso from that was a pain. I managed to do it in the end, with a couple of small errors. It didn`t boot all the way up in live-mode, and the install also failed to install grub. But as I use another distro as a master-grub, it detected the install and I was able to boot it to install grub, and now the install works flawlessly. All changes stick, like backgrounds, themes and icons, and of course, apps and menus..., and I suppose that the errors I got, has to do with the fact that I upgraded to testing, and upgraded the kernel to towo-siduction-3.6-10-amd64. Which probably doesn`t match other install files.

- apt-mark hold account

^Definitely welcome fellow nixer(s) ... haven't been on #! forums in awhile. Feels good to know people are getting use from the info. Like you, took a lot of research, web surfing and experimentation to find and compile a how to on this. Though yay ... now it's all consolidated in one place for nixers everywhere. Errrr, if they can find it anyway. smile

Some common cbiz abbreviations. This will save me time and yet @ same time tell folks what the babble is supposed to mean.
