As to the size issue... What are the chances the .iso you made previously still exists on your desktop? ;)
It is trying to stuff your previous iso into your new iso. I didn't delete it as part of the process because sometimes during testing I would forget to backup versions.

Shame about the personal installer, as I said, I stopped testing that many versions ago... and libdvdcss2 is what I am looking for to remove... I will check libdvdcss as well. Thank you so much for the replies. I will fix these options shortly.

Ok so from here on out we will test the distributable version, unless otherwise specified by you.

I removed the iso from the desktop, and I removed everything in the /root/lmcetmp
I restarted but still fails with the iso being to big.
You think it might be because I ran the Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh. The data is too much to fit on a DVD?

I was doing all this testing at the office, and something affected the VM I was testing on. When I got home and started the VM, it went straight to the AV-Wizard....... After the AV-Wizard I briefly saw some pakages getting downloaded.

Hope this all makes sense???

I was surprised at the size of your personal iso. An iso made from a fresh install never yielded more than 2.2gb for me. Around 3.2 with Diskless_SetupTBZ having run. I was even able to stuff MAME on one.

Did you by chance create any MDs? Have you got .debs hiding someplace unusual?

When the script starts it looks to see if the workdir (/root/lmcetmp) exists, and deletes it... so you don't have to worry about that. Again a further version will destroy it on cleanup... but I liked it persisting until a new pass to look at stuff.

Can you possibly do a find /root/lmcetmp -name '*' -size +50000k and look for something big and unusual... like another iso or something? The only time I ever ran into size problems was after installing MAME and other stuff... unless I forgot about that iso you already removed.

Damn QT-SDK installer was sitting in the home directory and taking up 1.3GB of size.

It took about 1hour and 30min to create the distributable version and reinstall everything again afterwards, that was removed to create the image.
Im sure these times would change with different hardware specs, i.e Faster cores and internet bandwith.

I might still have some crap laying around, because the iso image is 3GB in size.

Now to test the install on a VM and actual core.

Outstanding. Knew it had to be something ;)

If you ran TBZ I would expect it to be about that size... regardless, you should be in the clear for whatever you want to do (other than mame)

Ok... it isn't you, I somehow broke the installer. I will have to grab several versions and see what I did to break it... has been so long since I looked at it.

I will try and fix it now. Sorry.

I think I broke the "install" option. Seems to only live boot...

No outward progress... lol... I think script 62 works... I will try and get a working script up and rolling tonight.

I have been busy trying to get 1004 snapshots going from a builder which has been sucking up my time/bandwidth for the last few days.

Yes, quite a bit, but not on this version.

Versions 58-60 have varying degrees of success. I am now working on a similar method which can either build LMCE from scratch (abnormally) and press an installing DVD, or take the pre-made abnormal image and produce the DVD.

I produced my first DVD that would make it through the installer today. A lot of errors to cleanup, and address a couple of processes and you should see a different sort of iso coming out soon.

Once I get it a bit more stable, I could use some help. It is currently spitting .iso's at 1.05Gb without video-wizard-videos. End result SHOULD be an install dvd at under 2 gb with Diskless_Setup already run.

Well...

then get lmcemaster
and dvd-installer You will rename them to remove the numbers. I put the commands below. You will need to install debootstrap and dpkg-devel before running the first script. The second will install what it needs.

chmod +x on all of them. Keeping them all in the same directory. Make the following modifications. To save yourself SOME time, grab a copy of video-wizard-videos_1.1_all.deb from /var/cache/apt/archives of a current LMCE 1004 directory, put it in the same directory as the scripts, and unhash lines 50-54 of lmcemaster to prevent having to download all 489 megs of it. Unhash line 50 at the very least to copy dvd-installer.sh into the proper place.

Another thing YOU should do is drop that nifty image of yours in the same directory and hash line 363 of lmcemaster and add a line like so:
Code: [Select]
#   if [ -e $DDMASTER/splash.png ]; then cp $DDMASTER/splash.png $ISODIR/isolinux/splash.png; fi
cp splash.png $ISODIR/isolinux

I am also screwing with the menu sizing to try and fit on your little screen, which is why it will be a little... weird if you use it as is. I am currently trying (at line 190 lmcemaster)
menu width 70
menu margin 10

I do sudo su before these sorts of things... so I don't type sudo before everything as it should be implied.
Code: [Select]
chmod +x scratch_master.sh
mv lmcemaster.3 lmcemaster
chmod +x lmcemaster
mv dvd-installer.2.sh dvd-installer.sh
chmod +x dvd-installer.sh
./scratch_master.sh

A bit of warning... I have never run scratch_master... but I have looked over it a lot and it really SHOULD work... lol. It is just too big a drain on my tiny internet... if it encounters any errors they should be minor. Post and I will fix.

Another thing, keep that 1004 image backup the first script spits out. You will only want to make it once, and you will be using it a lot. Now
Code: [Select]
./lmcemasterOnce you run lmcemaster you will douche up that image... so once run just: cp 1004bu 1004
and you are ready to run again to create another image. lmcemaster will spit out an iso named LMCE-1004-beta.iso and its md5. You can load that in a vm, use unetbootin to drop it to a thumb or burn a dvd.

I have not even begun to get back to live boot again. No idea what it will do.

If lmcemaster hits an error it will die. It should not hit an error. If it does and you want to continue because it is awesome even if it errors, hash line two. (set -e)
