Trouble creating ISO

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

Trouble creating ISO

Post#1 by Maggie » 16 Sep 2013, 14:32

Hi,

I decompressed the Porteus Kiosk ISO and unsquashed the files 002-firefox.xzm and 003-settings.xzm, did the changes I wanted to make and squashed them back successfully. Now, I want to recreate the ISO and tried running the make_iso.sh script, but I get this error message :
./make_iso.sh: line 28: /tmp/selfgz13203/bin/mkisofs: No such file or directory

I searched for a solution and found that I could use make_iso.sh-org instead. I get a different error message this time :
genisoimage: Uh oh, I cant find the boot catalog directory 'boot/isolinux'!

I searched again and found nothing this time, so I'm clueless. Can anyone help me?

Ooops, forget it. It was my fault, somehow I ended up not having the boot directory next to the porteus directory, guess I was too tired or something when I was working on this. :oops:
