It's still giving me weird issues. It built an iso this time, but it still did not make an sfs. It just copied the apupsys dir into the iso instead. It also did not copy the kernel to the iso.

I used option 8 on a full HD install.

which partition is the install on (sda2 ?) or the entire sda hdd? Give more info/details.

. I recommend option 10 = sfs-direct-remaster.

Install is on sdb1 and the iso is built on sdc1.

I'll try 10 when I get the chance later today.

Is #6 supposed to create a bootable USB from an ISO? I was having a bit of trouble there trying to do so with 3 Headed Dog. Can you detail this a little more?

Thanks,

open /usr/sbin/sfs-unattended-remaster from line 558 edit to look like this:
Code:
echo "Enter the usb device; eg sdb"
         read usb
         umount /dev/$usb
         isohybrid $niso
         dd if="$path""$pth1""$niso" of=/dev/$usb bs=4M
         sync
         sleep 1
         parted /dev/"$usb"1 set boot on
         sleep 1
         mount /dev/"$usb"1
         echo "Finished!"
         sleep 2
                       $rtn2menu && exit;;


and from line 609
Code:
 6) echo "Enter 'usb partition iso' eg 'sdb sda5 /my-folder/new-Slacko-8.8.iso'
NB: If you choose to make the iso a hybrid back it up first."
         read usb part iso
         umount /dev/$usb
         mount /dev/$part "$path""$part"
         #echo "Gparted will open for you to prepare your usb device. When ready close gparted."
         #gparted /dev/$usb
         echo "Make the iso a hybrid? y or n?"
         read hybrid
         if [[ "$hybrid" = y ]]; then
            isohybrid "$path""$part""$iso"
                                dd if="$path""$part""$iso" of=/dev/"$usb" bs=4M
         else
            dd if="$path""$part""$iso" of=/dev/"$usb" bs=4M
         fi
         parted /dev/"$usb"1 set boot on
         echo "Finished!"
         $rtn2menu && exit;;


I don't remember how the parted code got omitted. But it had a bug which I see now as parted requires partition (sdb1) but dd only device (sdb).

Stemsee,

So to clarify, item 6 should make an iso into a bootable USB? To save space, would you consider having it make a bootable USB without creating an iso file first? It seems all the files are already there without having the iso.

Also, can you consider adding about 5 seconds to the unattended for those slow readers like me?

Thanks and thanks!!

Anyway I had problems remastering quirky April 7.03 so I cut a version of sfs-direct-remaster script down for April only. Repacks initrd.q, works only in ram.

So you still need to install the suite then replace /usr/sbin/sfs-direct-remaster with this version.

Would it matter if the running system is DVD/Frugal based OR full install version (USB/HDD) for April64-703?
