mksquashfs Live CD?

Hi,

I’ve used programs like remastersys on Ubuntu and mylivecd on PCLinuxOS, they basically make an archive of the running system using mksquashfs then turn it into an ISO file with genisoimage. Is it possible to me to create a script that does this in openSUSE, that makes a Live CD backup of my running system?

Thanks.

Hi
There are multiple ways, generate an autoyast file (via YaST) and then
use kiwi to create an image. One of the simpler ways is to upload the
autoyast xml file to SUSE Studio (https://susestudio.com) and then
create you own image in whatever format is required. In this case you
may have to upload any configuration files.

Else, just build what your wanting on SUSE Studio and use that, live,
preload, vm etc…

Hi,

I tried out building an image using Kiwi’s image-creator. Is it possible for me to add overlay files by putting them into the /var/lib/YaST2/product-creator/images/testOS/root/ folders? I can see there is a skel folder present in the root directory, does putting files in the cause the image creator to place those files into the /etc/skel folder in the Live CD?

Thanks
