My latest scripts do not download the MD stuff on creation. It is taking ME too long to test over my crap connection. If anyone would like this feature, uncomment line 199 of postmaster.sh. I have also included an experimental switch to telinit 3 which may get rid of the avwiz overrun.
Also when it is finished installing, it no longer automatically reboots. I had set it to run RebootWithAVWizard.sh, however it does not reboot with avwiz. For now, please manually reboot, and hold the shift key so avwiz will glow.
Because everything has changed so much, I would like to explain clearly, for now, how to test this. For 810:
1. Install the latest 810 snap (using the "Install LinuxMCE" option) up to Kubuntu desktop and change the sources as described in the wiki. Run update/dist-upgrade as detailed in the wiki.
2. Download my latest scripts from svn link at top of each page in this thread.
3. Terminal into whatever directory you download to, and as sudo su execute the following (where XX is the latest script number):
cp postmaster.XX.sh /root/new-installer/postmaster.shFor 1004:
cp master_lmce.XX.sh /root/new-installer/master_lmce.sh
chmod +x /root/new-installer/*.sh
apt-get -f upgrade
Download and install Kubuntu 10.04, 32bit edition only. At desktop open terminal and enter (where USER_NAME is your user name):
svn co http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/branches/LinuxMCE-0810/src/new-installer
chmod 777 /home/USER_NAME/new-installer
Now download my latest scripts at the svn link at the top of each page of this thread, and open a terminal at that place and enter (where XX is the current script number and USER_NAME is your user name):
cp postmaster.XX.sh /root/new-installer/postmaster.sh
cp master_lmce.XX.sh /home/USER_NAME/new-installer/master_lmce.sh
cp postmaster.XX.sh /home/USER_NAME/new-installer/postmaster.sh
chmod +x /home/USER_NAME/new-installer/*.sh
apt-get -f upgrade
For the record this creates a duplicate folder, and I dislike redundant folders. For BOTH
When it is finished and has burned a DVD for you... choose an option (i.e. reboot with new dvd).
You will probably get about half way through the kubuntu installer before avwiz pops up with a failed to load x error. ctrl+alt+f7 to get back to the installer. I'm working on that... sorry.
The system will install, you will be prompted to reboot... on reboot... well... at the moment... I am not sure what you will see. KDE might load for a minute, it might not. You might be able to see what is happening... you might not. Check ctrl+alt+f7 or f2 or f3 until you you see normal download stuff. When it is finished, reboot the machine and hold the shift key down during boot. You will be in avwizard.
IF it does not detect your dvd burner (seems for me to only be a problem in vbox), it may be at /dev/sr0 or something like that, then execute (where YOUR_DVD is wherever your dvd is):
growisofs -Z /dev/YOUR_DVD=/home/remastersys/remastersys/lmce.iso
A Distribution creation will produce an installable distributable .iso without non-free drivers (like anything nvidia... etc)
A Personal creation will produce something entirely different that has all of the drivers pre-loaded for live boot, which you can use on just about any system (with the appropriate options in avwiz), which you can demo on foreign systems with full functionality... but I have not tested that in a long time... and a lot has changed.
Thank you all for your help.
