volid option of ISO file

(1/1)

patrick:
I think the problem is I didn't comment out 64 bit option
and the ISO file was not created.     It looks like there is a
full /live and /isolinux directory's in /ISOTMP.

Can I manually make the ISO from there with genisoimage,
or is the whole process needed again ?     Filesystem.squash
is 912 MB.      I'm almost tempted to do a frugal install,
everything looks like it's there.

Advise ?

edit: frugal setup boots but will not accept user/password at
graphic login screen.   

pavroo:
If you vave the squashfs made already, go to directory:

--- Code: ---/ISOTEMP/ISOMOUNT
--- End code ---
and create the iso manually:

--- Code: ---xorriso -as mkisofs -rock -omit-version-number -disable-deep-relocation -joliet -allow-leading-dots -volid "your-volid-name" -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -eltorito-alt-boot -e boot/grub/efi.img -no-emul-boot -o "/patch-to-working-dir/new-image.iso" "/patch-to-working-dir/ISOTEMP/ISOMOUNT"
--- End code ---

Hi,

I think the iso refuses to create because the working
directory is another hard drive.    So I make an iso out
of /ISOTEMP and it refuses to login.      Boots into the
lightdm screen.         What next ?       It's stuck there
with incorrect password.

thanks for the response,

Patrick

pavroo:
It happens when the live user's /home directory is to large.
Have you put extra files to /etc/skel dir or have you installed something what is installed in /home directory, such as steam or so?

The second possible reason is new version of live scripts. Have you upgraded packages of the chrooted system before making new iso?
