Remastersys

Postby phkeun on Mon Jun 16, 2008 11:23 am

:D 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 !

Just try searching the net, you may find some clues...

I have found this link with google: http://www.sat-industry.net/forums/appl ... image.html

The squash file system (SQUASHFS) is a derivate of CRAMFS (Compressed RAM File System) which is used to "pack" the Dreambox' Operating System into the Flash.
When the Dreambox boots up, it is "unpacked" and stored into RAM for as long as the Dreambox is "ON"

See here and here for more information and to download some tools.

BTW: A combination of both is used as "DreamboxFS" the system now used for the Dreambox for maximum compression as the OS is getting bigger and bigger and authors of images are "running out" of Flash (space in the Flash chip to store the image).

Thanks a lot man, but I just don't get the point, and I do not catch what to do... :oops:
Why isn't it a simple .iso ? What shall I burn ?
The created folder in /home/remastersys contains a dummysys and isotmp/casper/ folder,
with the 2,4 Go sqashfs file..., and a custom.iso of 34 Ko in root directory.
I didn't find any explanation on the net,
Old fashion was so userfriendly... :?
Thanks anyway 8)
