Remaster your own live installer, live iso

works with ubuntu too... Ubuntu Live CD Customization

Fetch your favorite iso, in the following examples we will take puredyne-911-carrot_and_coriander iso to show that this procedures can apply to a lot of different isos/systems.

The basic procedure is simple:

  • mount in a loop the iso;
  • copy the content of the image in a directory of choice except for the main squashfs filesystem (on ubuntu and debian named filesystem.squash, on dynebolic dyne.sys);
  • uncompress the squashfs into another directory of choice;
  • copy from the host system or edit manually /etc/resolv.conf to use working dns;
  • do a bind mount of dev,proc and sys into the uncompressed directory;

Just to be sure not to have locales problems during installation of new packages export 2 system variables:

export HOME=/root
export LC_ALL=C
