UCK gets “alternate cd” support

My latest commit in the UCK repository I added a couple of scripts to support the remastering of alternate cds.

To rebuild an Ubuntu alternate cd now you can do this:


sudo ./uck-remaster-unpack-iso ubuntu-7.04-alternate-i386.iso
sudo ./uck-remaster-prepare-alternate

do your customizations and copy the packages that you need to add to the cd


sudo ./uck-remaster-finalize-alternate your-gpg-key-id
sudo ./uck-remaster-pack-iso

GPG key id is needed cause we need to re-sign the repositories.

Here we go! Nice hu?

Another small thing I implemented in the last days:

  • uck-remaster-unpack-initrd and uck-remaster-pack-initrd now automatically detect if you’re customizing an alternate cd and put the files in the right places

I’m really happy now cause I have something (this new UCK) that’s very flexible to work with and I’m getting big results customizing Ubuntu cds.

    you can’t chroot the alternate, it’s not a live filesystem, you can call the remastering scripts “uck-remaster-unpack-iso” then “uck-remaster-prepare-alternate” then put your deb file into the right dirs (take a look inside the remaster dir…) and then repack the ISO.

    please use launchpad answer system for these kind of questions

    bye :)
