    it's good enough, but how can a serious guy leave the terminal and understand the things before he makes a successfull re-mastering. I feel, re-mastering knoppix requires a good knowledge of KDE also.

    It's better now, if all the knowledge-able guys get together and write a complete how to detailing each and every aspect right from boot.img, minirrot.gz and then to 45xsession.

    anyway's a great effort by fab..

    KDE? Not really as it has almost nothing to do with remastering. In fact my remasters don't have KDE on them at all! You will need to use the cli but you can also boot directly into your remastering environment which of course enables you to use the web and irc to get help. Don't use the chroot method unless you're just making some simple changes like apt-get remove/install <pkg>.

    It's simple really. Boot into your remaster, apt-get remove/install, add your changes and customizations to /etc/skel, recompress KNOPPIX, make the .iso, burn the .iso reboot. Yes this can all be done from one partition without rebooting.

    READ FIRST. Search second. Then post a detailed question so that we can help you get what you need.
    Can you please READ before posting!?!?!?!
    Based on your ability to register on this forum and make a semi-intelligent post, this would indicate that you know how to read and even know how to write. Even if English is not your primary language, there is no excuse for not reading FIRST!
    Just Five ( 5 ) lines down from this post (about 2.2 inches or 5.59 cm on my screen ) in this Customising & Remastering forum is a HOWTO I wrote based on the scripts that Fabian & others created. It is called HOWTO: Remaster the easy way using menu based scripts and is should provide you with more than enough info to get started.

    I did it after ....

    I bought a book titled Knoppix Hacks.
    It contains a step by step instructions, but, it is not for the faint of heart. It is, also, command line based. As a new comer to the Linux scene it helped.

    I bought a book titled Knoppix Hacks.
    Its a great book. I have it & I enjoyed it. But this thread is about remastering with menu scripts, which is _not_ from the "Knoppix Hacks" book. Take a peek at HOWTO: Remaster the easy way using menu based scripts at see that this method is very different from the method described in the book on in the Knoppix.net Documentation.

    Can't use the script

    Hello:

    Maybe you would like to know that I'm not beeing able to use the script.
    Since I'm a linux novice, I don't have the slightest ideia why, but the error
    messages are

    root@KanotixBox:~/remaster-0.1# knoppix-remaster
    /usr/bin/knoppix-remaster: line 45: syntax error near unexpected token `('
    /usr/bin/knoppix-remaster: line 45: ` * * * * * let
    REMASTER_PERC=($REMASTER_PROGRESS*100)/$REMASTER_NEEDED_SIZE'

    Using the graphical interface also doesn't help. The window starts and
    desappears instantaneously.

    I tried to download manually and first just run it with "./knoppix-remaster" , secondly to install it with "make" *"make install"
    and thirdly to dowload the debian file and install it with Kpackage.

    I have kanotix installed, with the 2.6.15-1-kanotix kernel.

    Regards.
    Joao

    [/color]
    This has been discussed in tread New bash 3.1-1 from unstable causes remaster script to fail

    My solution was to make some changes to original Fabian's knoppix-remaster script. The thing to do is use bash extension in line 45 and 66:
    Code:
    let "REMASTER_PERC=($REMASTER_PROGRESS*100)/$REMASTER_NEEDED_SIZE"
    
    let "REMASTER_NEEDED_SIZE=($(df /cdrom /KNOPPIX | awk '{ N+=$3 } END { N+=(500000*0); print N }')*115)/100"
    Brackets $[<SENTENCE>] are oudated and will be removed in the future versions of bash.

    Thanks to tr for this link http://lists.debian.org/debian-knopp.../msg00009.html . A doubled block size is now being used in the statement for compressing the KNOPPIX file for Knoppix 5.1 (131072 instead of 65536).
    A note is output by the genisoimage (new fork of mkisofs) concerning the new syntax :-
    Code:
    Warning, number as file string found. Assuming old command syntax and choosing compatible parameters (-m -B 131072). See the usage info (-h) for better/correct parameters.
