great howto, i will be doing my remaster in a week or so.

one thing:

a more intelligent way to solve the "need to be root in emelfm" prob is to use ctrl-alt-delete to exit X, type sudo su and then type startx, you are now root for everything you do (note: use with caution)

Please, help me? Help me? I have tried to remaster the 0.8 version but it doesn't work using the procedure I just described concerning the 0.7.3 version. It seems to me that the init process is dramatically changed in the most rescent version. If anyone has a clue how to make it work I think many enthusiasts would be grateful. Thanks beforehand!

Have fun guys,

meo, here is what I did for 0.8.0 that worked (it drove me nuts, but clivesay saved the day with the last line).  You need to copy the boot & lost+found directories to the new cd, as well as the index.html file.  Also the -b and -c files have changed in the final mkisofs command, in addition to a boat load more switches to worry about:

mkdir source
mkdir newcd
mkdir newcd/KNOPPIX
cp -Rp /cdrom/boot newcd
cp -Rp /cdrom/lost+found newcd
cp -p /cdrom/index.html newcd
cp -Rp /KNOPPIX source

<do any fiddling with the KNOPPIX directory here.  Add files, chroot and use dpkg, whatever>

mkisofs -R source/KNOPPIX | create_compressed_fs - 65536 > newcd/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX
mkisofs -no-pad -l -r -J -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -b boot/isolinux/isolinux.bin -c boot/isolinux/ -hide-rr-moved -o mydsl.iso newcd

I think in that create_compressed_fs command, you can use the -b (best) switch if you want.  It makes the iso image smaller.

clacker -

Those mkisofs commands can wear you out if you remaster very often! I create a and an script to speed everything up.   :)

I wonder does anyone happen to know where Sylpheed keeps its information?

I'm building a remaster (removing software I don't use, adding in some nice stuff), but the last thing I want to do before committing to a disc is to add my e-mail logins (I have five accounts - a pain to enter in every time you boot off of some random computer).  I don't want to bring my whole Home directory with me, but just taking the .sylpheed folder doesn't seem to do anything.
