Live CD with Programs
« on: April 01, 2013, 01:09:48 PM »
Again hello community,

I'd tried to made my own live CD with programms installed but I dont get the programms installed into the iso...

without installed programm only with files it's no problem

I'd found several tutorials like these:
http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php?topic=6637.0
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:remastering
[removed due to policy violation]/modified-cd.html
http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:integrating_extensions
.
.
.


so I'd tried it that way:













cd
wget http://www.tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/release/Core-current.iso


sudo mkdir /mnt/tmp
sudo mount Core-current.iso /mnt/tmp -o loop,ro
sudo cp -a /mnt/tmp/boot /tmp
sudo mv /tmp/boot/core.gz /tmp
sudo umount /mnt/tmp


mkdir /tmp/extract
cd /tmp/extract
sudo zcat /tmp/core.gz | sudo cpio -i -H newc -d

sudo depmod -a -b /tmp/extract 3.0.21-tinycore

tce-load -wi gzip

cd /tmp/extract
sudo find | sudo cpio -o -H newc | gzip -2 > ../mycore.gz

tce-load -wi mkisofs-tools.tcz
tce-load -wi brasero.tcz
tce-load -wi isomaster.tcz

cd /tmp
sudo mv mycore.gz boot
sudo mv boot/mycore.gz boot/core.gz
mkdir newiso
sudo mv boot newiso

mkdir newiso/tce/optional

tce-load -wi nano  # thats the example for all programms....

sudo cp /tmp/tce/optional /tmp/newiso/tce/optional



sudo mkisofs -l -J -R -V TC-custom -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 \
 -boot-info-table -b boot/isolinux/isolinux.bin \
 -c boot/isolinux/boot.cat -o sfos.iso newiso






what did I do wrong?

in own tutoral it said that it should be in "optional" other said only "tce" I'm confused



Thank you in advance

Hi buggy
Have you tried using  ezremaster.tcz

Having dirs called /tce/optional on an .iso seems to be looking for trouble, as tcedir must always be writable.
You might want to have a look at a CorePlus.iso to get an idea.

oke ... tried it but with no succeed


I'd tried it like I discriped on top
only without the path "newiso/tce/optional"

now I'd tried it like on CorePlus with "cde" folder,
and the "optional" folder which includes all tce etc... like the "newiso/tce/optional" before...
and now I'd added a "/newiso/cde/onboot.lst" and writed   for example "nano.tcz" in it...

hope you have a second hint for me ;)

or perhaps can I install the programm into the filesystem... but how
when unpack the tcz files with "unsquashfs"   merge the Folders into the "extract" folder it also dont works..

You could place extensions into /tmp/builtin/optional/ (inside cpio archive).

oke I think I understand it


I extract the core.gz for example to "/tmp/extract/"
then I copy the extensions as "cpio" format into "/tmp/extract/tmp/builtin/optional"


Am I right?

ok I found a solution


first I execute this script:

Code: [Select]
cd
wget http://www.tinycorelinux.net/4.x/x86/release/Core-current.iso


sudo mkdir /mnt/tmp
sudo mount Core-current.iso /mnt/tmp -o loop,ro
sudo cp -a /mnt/tmp/boot /tmp
sudo mv /tmp/boot/core.gz /tmp
sudo umount /mnt/tmp


mkdir /tmp/extract
cd /tmp/extract
sudo zcat /tmp/core.gz | sudo cpio -i -H newc -d

then I install all extensions I want to have...

then I open /tmp/extract/opt/bootlocal.sh and write
   -> sudo -u tc tce-load -i XXX XXX XXX XXX XXX
      # XXX = all extensions


and at least I execute this script:
Code: [Select]
sudo cp -R /tmp/tce /tmp/extract/tmp/

sudo depmod -a -b /tmp/extract 3.0.21-tinycore

tce-load -wi gzip

cd /tmp/extract
sudo find | sudo cpio -o -H newc | gzip -2 > ../mycore.gz

tce-load -wi mkisofs-tools.tcz
tce-load -wi brasero.tcz
tce-load -wi isomaster.tcz

cd /tmp
sudo mv mycore.gz boot
sudo mv boot/mycore.gz boot/core.gz
mkdir newiso
sudo mv boot newiso
sudo chmod 777 -R newiso


cd /tmp

sudo mkisofs -l -J -R -V TC-custom -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -b boot/isolinux/isolinux.bin -c boot/isolinux/boot.cat -o sfos.iso newiso

Consider that this might become inefficient as soon as you would restore a backup.

Why not use /tmp/builtin/onboot.lst ? (path within remaster)

sudo depmod -a -b /tmp/extract 3.0.21-tinycore

When it comes to adding modules in a remaster, I find following script ideal, as besides from adding required modules it also discards all unused modules:

tce-load -wi gzip

It is not obvious why the gzip extension would be needed.

first thanks for your feedback

I'd used /tmp/extrac/opt/bootlocal.sh because /tmp/tce/onboot.lst wont work, dont know why...



and well yea the gzip is a relict from old tries
i can remove it

Oops, that should have read:

/tmp/builtin/onboot.lst  (path within remaster)
