    Remastering

    Hi
    Just wondering if it is possible to actually get into a KNOPPIX session you are trying to change.

    The docs I have seen it looks like you copy it over, boot with another copy of the os run get-apt update. Hunt down config files and change them and then make an image of that.

    So is there a way to install KNOPPIX, boot it, install/change to your hearts content and then make live cd from that???

    Thanks

    I found this nice URL http://www.stirnimann.com/mystuff/doc/knoppix.txt in this forum a few days ago.

    It tells you, step by step, how to remaster Knoppix. Take a special look att 3b and 3c, where you start a chroot:ed X -server!

    The easieist way to change the configurations for KDE or other GUI's is-

    unpack the KNOPPIX cloop file to your hdd as described

    boot a knoppix CD in text mode (knoppix 2)

    backup /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and replace them with the ones generated by knoppix

    mount your hdd partitions

    backup /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 and replace them with the ones generated by knoppix

    chroot into the unpacked source filesystem, mount proc,

    mkdir /home/knoppix
    cp /etc/skel/.* /home/knoppix
    chown -R knoppix:knoppix /home/knoppix
    chmod 755 /home/knoppix
    su knoppix
    vi ~/.xinitrc (create a simple .xinitrc file to start your graphical environment of choice)
    startx

    make all the changes you want, you are now in the remastered version of Knoppix you're making.

    when done,
    as root-
    rm -rf /etc/skel
    mv /home/knoppix /etc/skel
    chown -R root:root /etc/skel


    Clean up your temporary stuff, clear apt-get's cache, edit scripts and do any final tasks, then exit chroot and remaster the CD.

    Doing it this way, you don't have to xnest. but you do have to be aware of whether the shells you're working in are in the knoppix CD you booted or are chrooted to the filesystem you're working on. Some things are easier to do from outside the chroot, most must be done from inside the chroot'ed filesystem.
