I have bought a new machine !!! How long that had not happened to me, but finally I went through the act... In France we have a non for profit association (but which works with the rules of the entreprises) and which helps the people needing to get work by providing work to them... in the field of computer -- searching for words... - repair, re-re well old machines coming from enterprises which are still very good to use.
I bought a IBM Thinkpad T60, with dual core, 2 GB ram and a laaarge hard drive (320 MB compared to what I'm used to is huge, believe me !)
Now, I intend to reduce Windows, change it a bit to have multidesktops and a few nice other Free software, and install the system I have on my usual machine.
This is where it becomes a bit complicated : I have done quite a few isos for the others, but make one with my own system seems all of a sudden like unknown territory !
How do you do that ?
I have 2 partitions, well 3, one for / one for /home and one for swap, I put the big datas in one directory, cleaned, tried several command lines...
I have now:
$ df -m
Sys. de fichiers 1M-blocs Utilisé Dispo. Uti% Monté sur
/dev/sda6 5909 4931 678 88% /
/dev/sda5 35054 23199 10075 70% /home
I have cleaned the system with bleachbit, removed all docs from /usr/share/docs, and... after a few tries, ended with this command:
mylivecd --lzma --tmp=/home/melodie/SSH --md5sum --nodir=^/home/melodie/Documents,^/home/melodie/"VirtualBox VMs" pclinuxos-melodie-22-Juin-2011.iso
I was in my home directory when I started this command, and just before I had tried the same with "--gzip".
I don't talk about trials before where I was in the wrong place with not enough space for the iso and the temporary files... I realized that. It was after that I started the command lines in a way that was supposed to be ok with 10 GB of available disk space.
But each time it stayd stucked at 4 and a few % on the "compressing files" stage (a whole night !)
What am I doing wrong ?
