Remastersys 2.0-3 released

Postby Fragadelic on Thu Mar 13, 2008 1:47 pm

These are among the changes:

2.0-3 - fixed issue with user creation if running dist after backup
- changed boot method for livecd to graphical grub
- changed method for making the livecd to provide clean passwd,group,shadow,gshadow files by copying /etc over to dummysys and altering from there
- added another remastersys folder under the WORKDIR in case the user chose an existing folder
- removed apt-get clean and excluded the deb files so the users system stays intact
- changed how the backup mode looks for the first user - safe now
- removed sbm

Please update your sources and install the new version.

The fixes are important and leave your installed system intact. In other words, this is the safest remastersys to date and should have the highest success rate on most systems now.

There is no longer a limitation on what username you use for the livecd/dvd or what names get used for install other than the standard ones that are excluded with Ubuntu proper.

If you want to change the splash image for grub for the livecd, just copy your properly prepared grub splash image to /etc/remastersys/splash.xpm.gz as this is the file that is copied over for the livecd/dvd.


It may take a day or 2 for Clem to put it in the Mint repo so you can update your source for just remastersys to this:

Paste the following into the sources.list:

# Remastersys
deb remastersys/

Then simply either reload in Synaptic or you can "sudo apt-get update" and install remastersys.
