Make a custom LM19 ISO

Post by Askey307 » Thu Sep 27, 2018 3:00 pm

Good Evening Guys

I need your advice on how to make a custom LM19 iso. I know it's possible by seeing it quite a bit of times that people like on reddit and quora did it. Basically what I want to do is, install LM19 on a VM, install all the apps and software I generally use, update everything and then make an ISO that I can install on any machine. So after installation everything will be there already, drivers, software and apps without having to do everything from scratch.

How can I go about doing this?

I would truly appreciate your help.

Kind Regards

Good Morning

Thank you for the input. Don't want to change anything in the distro really. Just want to install all my software, programming environments, apps and then repackage it as a ISO so when I install it, it's ready to use. Your first link looks promising. I'll have a look at it. Have you done it before?

No. I make regular backups so installing on another machine is as simple as restoring from a backup, not a single keystroke in configuration required.

Mmm that might work as well. May I ask how do you go about doing this backup? I've used Linux just for home purposes. But I move around a lot these days for work, work on a lot of different machines when I come to my new 2 weeks temporary offices etc.

You might get shot restoring your linux image to someone else's office machine. I use Clonezilla, and I have a high-speed USB SSD, which might be a better option for you when travelling. You can boot linux Mint live, plug in that USB SSD and install to it. Once that's done, boot the USB SSD and install your applications. It should run on almost anything as long as you don't install proprietary video drivers.

I've came across this. it's for Ubuntu. I'll try it out and revert back with my findings.
