I remastered an ubuntu gutsy install using remastersys dist as root (no errors during actual process)
However, when I boot the produced .iso file, I get to the GDM screen (the custom one i chose) and on the top the text shows up: user sam will login in 30 seconds. Why would it do that? I used the dist option, so why would the system try to log me in as the user i had on the build machine?
When the timer runs out and it tries to log me in, I get the error message: Your home directory is listed as /home/sam but it does not appear to exist. Do you want to log in with the / (root) directory as your home directory? It is unlikely anything will work unless you use a failsafe session. If I click yes, my session won't actually start.
If I ignore the timed login request and login as "mint" with no password (the user i specified in the /etc/remastersys.conf file), I don't get that same error message but I get an unthemed, uncustomized desktop (not the one I customized it to be) yet all the programs are in the menu.
So two questions:
1) Why is this business with my old username happening? How do I fix it?
2) How do I get it so the user mint has the right theme, wallpaper, and panel? Do I need to place certain folders in /etc/skel?
