[suggest] make use of isohybrid

Post#1 by acex » 17 May 2011, 15:42


i have just recently came along with Linux-gamers distribution which uses a cool "isohybrid" method for publishing their releases,
it is just same as conventional .iso files but you will be able to write the iso on a USB stick memory using a tool called win32diskimagerer, and then your usb will be like a CD and you can just boot your PC with it.

i wanted to share the knowledge and encourage Porteus developers to make use of this method because it eases modifying and writing the installation as many times you want.

Thanks will check it out.

This breed of ISO would need to meet the following criteria:

The extra weight in the ISO would need to be minimal.
The ISO would have to be mountable/extractable in linux.

On the surface, it sounds like a great idea!
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
