    ISO Size

    Hi,

    I'm busy remastering Knoppix v3.4 according to the Howto on this site, but when I make the final iso, it ends up being 717Mb and K3b doesn't like that

    You should remove some packages to keep the iso size down. tetex packages are good to get rid of and should clear up 60+MB if you have not removed them already. There are also several web browsers and text editors which are redundant (you only need one or two of each instead of 5 or 6).

    Thanks, I'll do that, but how do the Knoppix guys get all that down to <700Mb in the first place?

    Use the -b switch on create_compressed_fs. That's what the Knoppix guys do - it's slower, but uses a better compression schema.

    Thanks, I'll give that a shot. Slow is good if compression comes too.

    Would that work like this?

    mkisofs -R -U -V "KNOPPIX.net filesystem" -P "KNOPPIX www.knoppix.net" -hide-rr-moved -cache-inodes -no-bak -pad /mnt/hda1/knx/source/KNOPPIX | nice -5 /usr/bin/create_compressed_fs -b > /mnt/hda1/knx/master/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX
