A vote for X-cdroast....

If this don't git me Idiot of the Month nothin' will.....

While this would be beyond my own abilities,I'd really like
to see a dsl of X-cdroast, though it may be just too huge.
I use it to build my dsl CDs in an odd way-
I use cdrecord to burn a stock standard dsl iso to cdr.
I copy the whole thing back to a working directory on my
Linux distro.
I shovel lots of other subdirectories (like /optional) and Skins
and configs into this working directory.
I use X-cdroast to master a new CD to my liking.
X-cdroast can make the whole master iso track bootable.
Burn it.
Then delete the master track.

You end up with a clean standard DSL CD which you can use
for dsl package build, and one with all your extras on.
Plus a structure on your hard drive that you can add new dsl
packages to as they mature,or anything else for that matter.
Then easily make a new CD with the latest tricks on it.
You have not used any windows iso manipulating programs.
You have not faffed around with multi-session.
Although there are some very good ways I've seen on these
forums to use cdrecord/multisession.
It is just an almost completely graphical way to get the same

Wastefull?- Perhaps! (one cd ? and 50-150 meg HD space)
Moronic?- For sure!

I just want to see if there are any other X-cdroast fans
out there who could make a dsl package of it....
If it's even possible!
I'd really like to be able to use XcdR under DSL.

You could save a CD by mounting the ISO file instead of burning it:
mount -o loop -t iso9660 </path/to/iso> </path/to/mountpoint>

Adraker, like milkshaw says there's a lot of ways around what you're trying to do
(mkmydsl will go a long way) BUT I'm a fan of if you're a
live/frugal/don't care user then....

........what I've got is a `super-user only' version .dsl and you can find it at the
link below. Ive tidied it up a little today but now I'm out of time. The dsl will create
a directory /home/cdtemp for your images. There's no icon, no .info etc and no
normal user access. So it's just 'sudo su' and 'xcdroast'.....1.9 M compressed. opening
to 5M.

All the best.

nucpc...  nice job!

I usually run most any cdrecord app as root anyway..

some apps really scream without it...
