Create iso from existing installation?

Post#1 by Standard User » 19 Apr 2014, 17:27

Hello,
I would like to move my existing Porteus installation to VirtualBox(including all custom settings, modules and files) to do some experimenting. Is there a method how to create an iso from existing installation?

I will post the solution so people searching the forum don't find this thread totally useless.

In the porteus folder there is a script called make_iso.sh
From a root console, cd into this directory and call the script giving the target location as an argument like so:

Code: Select all

cd /mnt/sdxY/porteus
./make_iso.sh /tmp/mynewporteus.iso

Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
