    Test Woody Mini-ISO with kernel choices available
    Submitted by lordsutch on Monday, April 08, 2002 – 15:24
    Chris Lawrence has put together a mini-ISO of woody that allows you to choose which kernel flavor (compact, idepci, vanilla, bf24) you want to use when booting from the CD. For more details, see this email to debian-boot and debian-cd. Any feedback (by email, here, or via irc), particularly regarding its ease of use; ideally, it shouldn’t be any harder than using the “old-style” rescue disk prompts.

    will I ever be able to use this Mini-ISO to install Debian via PPP?

    what good is a network install iso if you can’t connect to your network?

    talk about excluding a large percentage of possible users…

    (I also noticed that there were no options for adding modules to the kernel when installing; is this ‘feature’ supposed to encourage people to download and compile the latest and greatest (un)stable kernel?)

    The ISO includes ppp, pppoe, pptp, and wireless-tools, so you should be able to connect to any network you need after going through base-config.

    Since all of base is on the image, you don’t need to go to the net until after rebooting, by which time you should have the complete base system available.

    oops…I was thinking of this one:

    http://people.debian.org/~ieure/netinst/

    maybe it applies to the ones mentioned in the articles, too.

    i know, i know, another reply from me. 😉

    here is zdisk, which

    will create a boot/rescue system on a 1.44mb or 1.722mb formatted floppy disk, with a kernel of your choice. It can also create a bootable boot/rescue cd disk. The kernel can’t be more than 1080Kb in size on the floppy version.

    saw that and thought that i would direct ya to it. don’t know if it’s any help.

    disclaimer: i haven’t made a bootable cd (though it’s fairly easy; just need a bootable floppy image), but i’m looking into making a bootable rescue cd with maybe even a live filesystem (ramdisk). essentially i want a simplified, stripped-down, basic version of my system for doing things like repartitioning the hard drive, fsck, and other things you can’t (easily) do while the root filesystem is mounted. there are some rescue cd available (referenced below), but i want to create my own where i can specify my own tools and keep them up to date.

    i’ve done some initial research into the subject by browsing for packages in the debian archive that might be helpful/essential.

    “boot cd” search

  • bootcd
  • mkinitrd-cd
  • mindi

    timo’s rescue cd set is based on woody and includes a toolkit for creating said rescue cd. maybe this could tailored for your sytem.

    and a general how-to on creating bootable cdroms can be found in this section of the bootdisk howto.

    any other suggestions, elaborations, corrections would be appreciated as i haven’t done this yet myself but looking to do it soon.

    Hi!

    I know you said you want to do your own CD, but I really suggest to you for checking out the KNOPPIX CD. It is a Debian based, bootable CD with a live filesystem, including many tools (in latest version) like Kernel 2.4.x, X11 4.1.0, KDE 2.2, Gimp 1.2, OpenOffice 6.x etc.

    The CD contains about a total of 900 installed packages with more than 2000 executable programs. Further highlights are automatic hardware detection on boot (using RedHat’s kudzu), localization (selectable on bootime), many network and security tools and so on…

    You won’t believe how many people I saw stunning to my screen when presenting this CD to them 🙂 Most of them were not really Linux users (to avoid the ‘W’ word) but they all have never seen something like this and were very impressed 🙂

    So check it out! Download links can be found by following the above hyperlink. It is also possible to buy a copy of the CD in several web shops, unfortunately only in Germany at this time (AFAIK).

    Hope this helps.

    bye

    thanks, though it appears to be an all german website (and i took spanish in school, not german). i’m not even sure i clicked on the “i accept” statement to go to here, but i assume so as it’s the download page.

    there’s also demolinux, which v2.0 of uses debian, but i want something to construct myself because i want to choose the tools and make sure they stay up to date.

    the official debian boot disk is okay when it’s first released, but eventually turns outdated (ext3 support). tom’s root boot disk use to be the defacto, but was also outdated until the 2.0 release recently. i want to be able to easily build and maintain a boot disk/cdrom with the tools of my choosing (ideally more).

    Yes, unfortunately it seems to be German only which I didn’t think about yesterday when posting it here. The download links listed are:

    ftp://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/knoppix/
    ftp://ftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/linux/knoppix/

    The 3rd one you also mentioned seems not to work at the moment.

    Sorry I saw this too late. Well, in case anyone still reads this thread, I would like to add that KNOPPIX is available in a lot of languages, you just have to type

    knoppix lang=en

    at the boot prompt to get everything translated to english.

    Besides, a preconfigures english image is also available. Sorry, I had no time to translate the Web page yet. But telling from the downloads, the english version of the CD is already quite popular.

    For your convenience, here are the download mirrors again:
    http://download.linuxtag.org/knoppix/
    ftp://ftp.uni-kl.de/pub/linux/knoppix/
    ftp://ftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/linux/knoppix/

    Fairly easy, best to download mkisofs tools src code and read the el torito section there. It gives exact command line.

    Good luck.

    Anyone know if there are any Debian rescue CD’s available with grub and an XFS-enabled kernel, or perhaps a tool to make my own Debian rescue disk ?

    A Japanese distribution “omoikane” has the grub that supports XFS.
    This distribution’s base is Debian,so it has the grub of debian package.

    If you need it,show the follow sites.
    Omoikane hp : http://www.omoikane.co.jp/
    Download site : http://dimension.sys.i.kyoto-u.ac.jp/mirror/ftp.omoikane.co.jp/tree/

    Good Luck!

    Is there any particular reason why you need Grub?
    If not and you simply need a Rescue disk for XFS try Make CD at http://mkcdrec.ota.be/ it allows you to make a rescue disk using your currently installed kernel and it can perform a complete backup of your computer if need be. It a no brainer and it worked like a charm for me.

    Try PGI (Progeny Graphical installer)
    When I installed Progeny some time ago it used Grub so…

    Didn’t tried PGI though

    Can we have a link to download it? That .msg does not make sense to me.

    I am willing to give it a whirl, as long as I can plug wget something to download!
