Just curious. How will I know what to put in the ramdisk_size parameter in isolinux.cfg after the image.gz compressed?


the script did it automatically for you

but you want to know how to it manually after the image.gz compressed ?

it's easy , do gunzip image.gz

the size of file image in kilobytes is what you will put in ramdisk_size=

Cannot STAT /usr : No such file or directory

yes, it was changed, there is no picture and text is other also

timeout is 600s but it can be easily changed

when paused, before creating final iso, you can edit file isolinux.cfg in the remaster folder

or before starting script edit it directly,it's easy Wink

Need overview of scripts - please...

Hi AlienX. Could you please be so kind and make some kind of overview
of the remaster scripts you have created, how to use them,
what they do and where should one select this or that script...

Thanks, PS

Idealy, would be some kind of a menu with these/all scripts together
with a help file explaining the differences etc.

The most updated versions are:

1-remaster-livecd-0.0.4.tar.gz

http://www.murga.org/%7Epuppy/download.php?id=1121

2-remaster-livecd-fast.tar.gz

http://www.murga.org/%7Epuppy/download.php?id=1183

(experimental, not yet tested by me in real burning and booting, the main difference is that it doesnt touch usr_cram.fs, the changes to folder /usr goes to usr_more.sqs,very fast, the remaster is done in a minute or two)


How to use both of them:

1-Boot Puppy 1.05 or 1.06 live cd (dont use Puppy installled on hd)

2-install whatever you want: dotpups or pupgets

3-do some cleanup of your /root folder (dont let movies, mp3 or any big files on /root/my-docuyments and /root)

4-run the script

5-the main and first question the script do is where to create the remaster folder

dont choose any folder inside /root, it will not work

choose a folder on a ext2 or ext3 partition on hd with enough space (about 300 mb)

if you have a lot of ram (768 or more) you can accept the default (/mnt/remaster) and do all work in ramdisk

6-burn the iso that will be in the remaster folder you have choosed


The script do all for you, is fully automatic: creates a new image.gz, put the ramdisk_size= value in isolinux.cfg and creates a new usr_cramfs or usr-more.sqs and the final iso

TIP:

when we install a lot of dotpups, folder /root/my-applications becomes big and then file image.gz also

this is not good for low ram computers

so I suggest that before renning script user moves /root/my-applications to /usr and symlink it back to /root, file image.gz will be smaller

you can do it with mc (midnight cmmander, a dotpup), rox or manually at console:

mv /root/my-applications/ /usr

ln -sf /usr/my-applications /root

Thanks AlienX. I have added your information on the wiki:

http://puppylinux.org/wikka/RemasterThings

I think your second script could also offer to only create the usr_more.sfs..?!
If you know, that the dotpups etc, that you are installed only under /root/.usr
than that should work... But probably, you never know...

Great work!

PS

or maybe

to create a separate script to do only this, a usr_more-maker

the main idea of script is to make the job the more simple as possible with so few questions "keep it simple, stupid"

the first version had not even that second question and pause, was just choose the folder and get the iso

I think that is good for newbies Rolling Eyes

PostPosted: Wed 09 Nov 2005, 15:29    Post_subject: image-new seems too small ..  

Trying to use AlienX's .4 script, and it seems that it's creating image-new too small (as I get out of space errors when it's getting loaded up). Anyone else run into this? It appears that the loop file size is set to the same size as the generated 'image' file, which seems like it should work .. but I get pages of these:

cp-FULL: cannot create directory `/mnt//remaster/image-new/root0/.tkdvd': No space left on device
cp-FULL: cannot create directory `/mnt//remaster/image-new/root0/archive': No space left on device
cp-FULL: cannot create directory `/mnt//remaster/image-new/root0/dotpups-downloads': No space left on device
cp-FULL: writing `/mnt//remaster/image-new/root0/.mailcap': No space left on device
cp-FULL: writing `/mnt//remaster/image-new/root0/.fonts.cache-1': No space left on device

maybe the folder you have choosed for remaster (first question) isnt in a linux partition with enough free space (300-400 mb) Rolling Eyes
