In the article on creating a custom Ubuntu ISO in LXF150, it was mentioned that the necessary commands to update the files in 'cd_root' would be included on the disk. I cannot, however, find these commands! Can anyone tell me what commands to use?

Sorry, but I can't, but I was unclear why the article went overboard to show us how to customise Ubuntu the complicated way, then as an asside say Oh, you can do it graphically as well and it's much easier.

Why not just show us the easy method? Confused

Hey,

Mike just pointed me to this thread. I'm very sorry for never actually sending him the code to put on the disc, complete brain freeze on my part! Anyway, for those who are looking for it, here's what you need:

Code:

chmod +w work/cd-root/casper/filesystem.manifest
sudo chroot edit dpkg-query -W --showformat='${Package} ${Version}\n' > work/cd-root/casper/filesystem.manifest
sudo cp work/cd-root/casper/filesystem.manifest work/cd-root/casper/filesystem.manifest-desktop
sudo sed -i '/ubiquity/d' work/cd-root/casper/filesystem.manifest-desktop
sudo sed -i '/casper/d' work/cd-root/casper/filesystem.manifest-desktop

printf $(sudo du -sx --block-size=1 edit | cut -f1) > work/cd-root/casper/filesystem.size

cd work/cd-root
sudo rm md5sum.txt
find -type f -print0 | sudo xargs -0 md5sum | grep -v isolinux/boot.cat | sudo tee md5sum.txt


Once again, sorry! Also, I know I showed the hard way and then mentioned that you can do it easily with a graphical tool, but I always think it's good to know how things work as well as knowing how to work them Smile
