Linux Live Kit
==============
Use this set of scripts to turn your existing preinstalled Linux
distribution into a Live Kit (formely known as Live CD).
Make sure to extract and use it on a posix-compatible filesystem,
since it creates some (sym)links and such.
* Before you start building your Kit, edit the file ./.config
Most importantly change the LIVEKITNAME variable.
* Make sure your kernel is in /boot/vmlinuz
* You may also wish to replace boot graphics in ./bootfiles/bootlogo.png
and reorganize isolinux.cfg to fit your needs (when editing the file,
keep all paths in /boot/, it will be rellocated during LiveKit creation)
* If you plan to boot your Live Kit from CD, you need to recompile
syslinux.bin else it won't be able to boot your Live Kit from directory
LIVEKITNAME. There is a script prepared for you which will handle all
of that. Simply go to directory ./tools/ and run isolinux.bin.update ...
it will update ./bootfiles/isolinux.bin automatically by downloading
isolinux sources, patching them using your actual LIVEKITNAME and
recompiling. This step is not needed if you plan to boot from USB only.
* If you have tmpfs mounted on /tmp, make sure you have enough RAM
since LiveKit will store lots of data there. If you are low on RAM,
make sure /tmp is a regular on-disk directory.
* When done, run the ./build script to create your Live Kit
- it will create ISO and TAR files for you in /tmp
- make sure you have enough free space in /tmp to handle it
