Thread: Uncompressed format CD

  1. #1

    Uncompressed format CD

    Dear all,
    I am customizing Knoppix and have reduced the file size to 640MB. Now I want to burn the CD without using the compression technique. Mainly because, I have a PI machine w/32MB RAM which takes a long time to start the WM.

    Can anyone can tell me what command should I use so as not to use the Knoppix compression technique for CD?

    Thanks.
    -Regards Anurag

    you will have to modify the bootup sequence to use LOOPBACK instead of CLOOP. And when making the compressed iso file, you would leave out the make_compressed_fs part.

    A bit more verbose

    Hello,
    Can you be a bit more verbose wrt cloop and loopback part? How exactly can I change the boot sequence?

    I have searched the forum but have not been able to learn more.

    About not using the compression, I hope you meant the command, create_compressed_fs and not make_compressed_fs .

    Awaiting reply.

    No, there will not be much info here. AFAIK, no-one has made a non-comressed knoppix, so you're on you're own with that one. And yes, i meant create_compressed_fs.

    As for changing the boot sequence, you'll have to change the scripts in miniroot ( inside boot img ) to mount your knoppix iso with loopback not cloop.
