How to use remastersys ?

Postby phkeun on Thu Jun 19, 2008 7:43 pm

Hi friends,

Old versions of remastersys were creating a large iso file (custombackup.iso)
that was easy to burn.
New remastersys creates a system.squashfs file, apparently a compressed one.
How do I burn the DVD using this file ?
Thanks in advance !

I believe your doing something wrong. Did you run remastersys from the menu?

Hi,

I ran it from both (gui and terminal su)
Could it be a vbox issue ? (cause of the vbox big file created for an other OS ?)
Thanks for your help ! 8)

Hi,
I tried to remove vbox and the .vdi file,
but same result, I still have a system.squadhfs,
just smaller (1,1 Go, instead of 2,3 Go)

I did a system backup with remastersys. I used the "dist" mode.
first, I got a big size, 800MB. Then I removed some unused package to reduce my system size.
After that, I did the system backup again.
But I was surprised when I got my second iso file's size increased to 1002.3MB..
Why is this problem can be happen and what can I do to create a 700MB iso?

everybody,please help me....

You may need to go to the remastersys forum itself, on that one.... :idea:
