Re: HowTo: Make your own iso, with Remastersys

This is something I always wanted. Figured there would be some sort of way to get your distro perfect and to be able to make an ISO for future

Re: HowTo: Make your own iso, with Remastersys

excellent! I've been trying to do something like this (just to fool around) but with remastersys out I found myself hopeless. I'll give it a try soon.

thanks!!

Re: HowTo: Make your own iso, with Remastersys

I haven't went through the how-to in detail, but thank you for the effort and time you put into this.  You mentioned that Remastersys is no longer being developed, which I also discovered awhile back when I researched it.  Because of the lack of current development, I  decided not to spend time learning and using it.  I'll wait for something else to come along.

Re: HowTo: Make your own iso, with Remastersys

Wow. Thanks tons for this, damo. Worked flawlessly, and now I have my own little distrolet for future installs on my machines.

Yay for backport kernels!

Re: HowTo: Make your own iso, with Remastersys

Sounds amazing!
That makes modifying the distro a lot easier if you want to bring your stylized system to other machines.

I have a question though:
Is it somehow possible to bring in or 'create' own versions of tint2rc and conkyrc?
I played around a lot there and I just have it how I like it - it would be cool if I could include these into the ISO.
Is that possible?
