Isolinux.bin is a file. In your example, isolinux is a directory. Open up some other Puppy ISO's and see what they look like.

Also, the warning message about the html directory indicates that some of its contents will be lost. Better to package it as a tarball.

....Can someone help by suggesting what this mkisofs command should be?

Try this:
Code:
mkisofs -o newcustomiso.iso -l -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table ISOplaceholder

Wow, really sorry for the late reply on this one, oldyeller...I'll have to check out the latest lupu to see what the deal is with ppmtolss...

Check out some information here, please to see if there is a workout that can be figured out...

Well, it does seem that Puppy Linux 5.2.8, aka Lupu 5.2.8 is missing some of the stuff we need to do this.

So here is how we fix that.

First, install the pet file that I’ve attached to this post. It will install gif2lss, ppmtolss16 and lss16toppm to /usr/bin for you.

Next, follow all the instructions in the first post through #3.

Then proceed:

4. Modify the ppm image. Gimp can easily open up ppm images.
Code:

cd /ISO/
gimp logo16.ppm


Now, do what you want to with gimp. Let's say you want to add some text. Click on the Text button in the tools menu (looks like a big "A") and put some text on the image.

All kinds of things you can do with gimp; search this forum and the internet. Gimp is my favorite graphics tool (in case you've never seen any of my other posts).

But whatever you do, remember the limitations: it has to be 640x480 (probably better at 640x388) and it has to be 16 colors.

Change the color index in Gimp: Image>Mode>Indexed and change the colors from 256 to 16 and click Convert.

Change the size in Gimp: Image>Scale Image and change it to the necessary size (you'll notice that the one that comes with Puppy 5.2.8 is 640x388, so it might be wise to have your new one the same size).

When you are all finished save it as a gif file.

5. Now let's do some reorganizing:
Code:

mv logo.16 logo-old.16


And then convert the new gif image to the old format and name:
Code:

gif2lss logo16.gif > logo.16


Now you have your new image ready to go. You can either move or delete the original logo.16 (now named logo-old.16) if you don't want it in the new iso image.

6. Create your new, now truly custom, iso file.
Code:

cd /
mkisofs -o newcustomiso.iso -l -b isolinux.bin -c boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table ISO/


Notice: that mkisofs command is one line, all the way to the end of ISO/.

Now you have your new iso (called newcustomiso.iso) in your / folder.

Enjoy!
**Note: I have used the attached tools in Lupu5.2.8 to modify and save the splash image. I have NOT yet gone through the whole process (essentially step #6) using 5.2.8 as I had with 4.2.1. So, please, feel free to try it for us and confirm whether or not it works.**

Hello,

i have "fixed" the .pet because i think the file inside the pet should be named "ppmtoolss16". The name of the file inside the pet is "ppmtolss16". I have just created a link to it. Do not know if this is an original "fault" so it is compatible in this way.

hey guys
sorry for being "late" but i have found that if you open logo.16 with mtpaint, you can edit it (keep it at a size that is something like 640x <480, to give space for the output messages)...
there's no need to do all those things...
and you can even place another image, if you edit the first line of file boot.msg, and replace boot.16 for the name of the image (open with geany!!!)...
you can also translate boot.msg and help.msg (both with geany!!!!) for any language (that can have chars written in a console <-- need confirmation about charsets)...
you can even change the text colors!!!
just need to practice...
as soon as i can get something, i'll show you some results...

to convert to lss16, just save as lss16 using mtpaint...
use also mtpaint to index it to 16...

hey guys...
i've been successful in changing my boot splash!!!
this is what i've done:
1-http://bestfreewallpapers.net/mediagallery/media.php?f=0&sort=0&s=20120308163333326
2-download the image and save it (this is the one i've used)
3-open it with mtpaint:
a-go to "image" and choose "scale canvas"
a1-on new you choose 640 and you can put a value lower or equal to 480 (recommended: 388)
a2-you might need to unselect the option "fiz aspect ratio"
b-go to "image" and click on "convert to indexed"
b1-on "indexed color to use", you put 16
b2-on "palette", choose "pnn quantitize"
b3-on "dither", choose "dithered"
b4-click on the button "settings"
b5-on "colour space", choose "rgb"
c-go to "file" and choose "save as..."
c1-on "file format", choose "lss16"
c2-(this is not a must) name your file of "logo.16.lss" (to distinguish which file is the new image)
4-open the file "boot.msg" using geany (or any equivalent file editor that supports special chars):
a-in the first line, change "logo.16" to the name of the image (ex: "logo.16.lss")
b-you can change the text color by writing after char "SI" the number of the color. the number of the color can be taken from the image. the color value MUST BE IN HEX (ex:SI0a). the color code will match the color indexed in the image!!!

now you have your new splash configured and ready to use!!!
p.s.:
this was tested using mtpaint 3.31, geany 0.18 and done in puppy linux 4.3.1
the results where quite great!!!
i hope it works to you!!!
