Travis -- a couple of things. First i can't access the page where the updated script is located.
..I've attached my current mkremaster2 script to the bottom of this post.. the old hack site is gone.
Secondly, is there any "Menu" way to exclude more directories and files? i'm just trying to include as much of my /home/frazelle09 directory as possible, but i need to exclude things like Music, LindasArchives and Photos and the pclinux2009.1.iso which is on my Desktop.
If you select the advanced mode when using the mkremaster2 script, there is a menu to exclude some common directories and files..BUT..
..if you decide to exclude a different set of directories or files than what is available in the prompts, make sure to click Cancel
on the respective prompts and instead, create your own excludes lists
when given the option to add additional custom mkliveCD options.. the key to this is that you CAN NOT use the both methods at the same time as I think one will overwrite the other!
The prompt boxes should give hints as to the options to use.. here is the relevant info from mklivecd --help
(notice that full paths start with ^
, each item is separated with a comma [,
], and you may need to escape spaces with a forward slash[\
].. not sure about that last one though):
--nofile <ex1>[,][...] Excludes files from the final image. (Also
see the --nodir option for a full
--nodir <ex1>[,][...] Excludes directories from the final image.
Patterns passed to this option (as with the
--nofile option) should be valid in a grep(1)
search, e.g. --nodir=^/home/jaco,^/root/.mcop
will exclude both the /home/jaco and
/root/.mcop directories from the final
Any BTW, wow! thanks for trying to improve this script!
Have a great evening!
..I'm still working on it as inspiration strikes; if you have any suggestions for it, post them here! (..on my short list is support for multiple kernels, and choosing compression type.. when time & priorities allow)
