My TinyCore Customization ISO
« on: October 23, 2009, 08:52:05 AM »
Hi there,

First of all Id like to thank TC crew, its a REALLY good linux dist, I think it has GREAT future.

Also Id like to post here the ISO i made with a custom TinyCore that Im using for board demostration here at my company, perhaps its useful for someone newbie.

I just added: ntfs-3g, grub, dillo, firefox, leafpad, rox filemanager, remote desktop client, vnc viewer, xine media player, gnumeric, abiword, gui calculator, gimp

www.tradecomp.com.br/tinycore.iso

Its about 70mb the iso, and I think you gonna need at least 256mb ram.

Im using version 2.3.1 as base cause I didnt like further versions without taskbar !!



Keep up the good work TC crew !!

It is just as easy to continue with jwm as it was to add ...

Just include jwm with the above in the same directory.

With the depreciation of tces, it is advisable to stay current.

Can you tell me (step by step) how you made your custum ISO?
TinyCore don't have programs I need, so I woud like in VirtualBox add them and then write ISO to CD.
How woud you know how much ram new custum ISO needs?

(I would like to use TnyCore on some old laptop with 128Mb RAM)

Mikuru forget my post. It was not too old then.

my older text
that is a very old version now so I would not recommend that one.

Sensui who posted has latest post November 22, 2009, so he has not updated it sincethen and now TCL are at 3.7RC2 something soon.

So him doing that with an old version already 2009 is too old now? Would the repo has good versions of browser for that older TCL? I know too little.

I am just a guest here so the regulars will give you good advices.

Thank you for help, i read the wiki, ... so how I add the pacages?
I did "Unpacking" first part of manual, at end is task.
"Now, the full filesystem is in /tmp/extract. Feel free to add, remove, or edit anything you like. "
So how I do that?

There is "Packing" manual but that is for kernel, I think.
Can somone can make exsample what should I write to add gparted to ISO.
And also if I want to add some more complex software like crome, will dependencies auto instal itself or I must instal them manualy?

It is actually quite easy. If you experiment a bit, I am sure you will figure it out.

Which part don't you understand?

I will give a bit more detail.

Install mkisofs-tools before beginning.

The first part is mounting the iso so you can access the files.

Create a new directory in /home/tc called dl (using a file manager).

Copy tinycore_3.6.iso to /home/tc/dl

Create a new directory in /home/tc/dl called tmp.

Use these commands in the terminal to mount it.

sudo su
cd /home/tc/dl
/bin/mount tinycore_3.6.iso tmp

You can now access the files on the iso, from the directory /home/tc/dl/tmp

Everything is in the directory boot.

Create new directories, let's use /home/tc/new-iso/tmp

Copy the contents of /home/tc/dl/tmp (the directory boot) to /home/tc/new-iso/tmp

The next step is to add apps.

Copy your entire tce directory (/mnt/sda1/tce may be something other then sda1) to /home/tc/new-iso/tmp.

You should now have 2 directories, boot and tce.

You now have all of the apps from your computer to the directory for the new iso.

The next step is to make a new iso.

Copy and paste this to the terminal. http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:mouse

sudo su
cd /home/tc/new-iso
mkisofs -l -J -V TC-custom \
  -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table \
  -b boot/isolinux/isolinux.bin -c boot/isolinux/boot.cat \
  -o TC-remastered.iso tmp

Burn this iso to a cd and see if it works.

After you have done that you can experiment with other options.

I can't copy tce folder to tmp.

Command 'sudo cp -fpR "/mnt/sda2/tce" "/home/tc/new-iso/tmp" ' not successful

Then I tryed to make folder in tmp
Cannot create directory. System returned (30): Read-only file system.

Then I tryed to change permisions on iso in tc no diference

After that tryed to change permisions on tmp folder
Permisions change error. System returned code 256

Try copying the directory "boot" to another directory, then copy the "tce" directory to the same directory.

Then make the new iso from there.

I will edit the previous post.
