Bookmarked so I can give it a look over.
@ozi: thank you very much for this. I have always wanted to study making a live iso, and even started to read documentation, but your 'how-to' will certainly shorten the time I have to read docs significantly. Once more: thank you very much!
^ +1 There's so much cruft in the Live Build Manual that it's hard to see the trees for the forest there.
Morning All! Well it's early morning here!
This is exactly the problem I had when I started looking at live-build, I couldn't find any decent working examples. Most of what I found in searching was either out of date or only fragments.
I gave an early version to a friend to try and he has moved on to customising it to his own liking now.
This is what works for me, I like to keep it simple.
I have done localepurge and also minimised the manpages to give me more space for drivers and to keep the image to around 600mb.
I found the manpages for lb config to be the best source of info. I used the manual some and it certainly helped to get me up to speed on the whole process, but given there is only 3 commands to the whole system, lb config is where 90% of the magic happens.
live-boot.7.txt is also very useful if you used --bootappend-live in lb config.
I'm uploading an iso atm that I built using this process this morning.
