Re: How long did it take you?

I asked only because, you mentioned (#4) that it took so much time to create the live iso through live-build. And, also as I had never used this method to create live isos.

I am glad that hhh had enough patience to go through that manual to create BunsenLabs live isos. Its not a manual, but a bl--dy headache. I can understand why the other guys don't want to create live isos the 'Debian way', but some other way. Everything anyway has to be done from an installed system in a chroot environment and for the root. Sometimes it maybe better to install the system, tweak it to your liking and then create the live iso from that.

Re: How long did it take you?

Experimented with the Debian live-build scripts yesterday, created the live iso. It's quite a tedious bit of work with too many configs to fill, doing things in a roundabout way, pulling in deb packages, creating cache and other stuff, all the while everything needed is right there in the installed Debian system. To use the live-build scripts, you have to have an installed system.

Time to time I try my hand on creating live isos, using the same ideas, from netinstall, then chrooting in, adding packages, adding config files, adding live installer etc, getting rid of the user and using the files from the installed system.

Two such tries. Both screenies are taken in live mode.
