Get a blank cdr. Make sure you have a cd writer.
Boot up DSL with the toram cheatcode (dsl toram) and leave the CD in.
edit /home/dsl/.xinitrc to where it looks like this.
|Code Sample |
# put X windows programs that you want started here.
# Be sure to add at the end of each command the &
if egrep -qv noicons /proc/cmdline 2>/dev/null; then
enhance &>/dev/null &
Open up /home/dsl/.filetool.lst with an editor, and add the following text, on a new line.
|Code Sample |
and run the backup (System >> Backup/restore) to a hard disk (not ntfs), usb, or even a floppy, if the default + this is all you are backing up.
rename the created file to "mybackup.tar.gz"
If you have a lot of ram (256mb or more should be enough) create a new directory in /home/dsl called work, and 2 sub-directories in it called extensions and iso.
If you don't have enough ram, you can use a hard disk partition (not ntfs), or even a usb pendrive. Just make the work folder and its subdirectories. I'll assume from here that it is in /home/dsl, but if it's not, use the appropriate path to there you put the work dir.
move/copy mybackup.tar.gz to /home/dsl/work/extensions.
In the menu, go Apps >> Tools >> Make myDSL CD Remaster
Enter /home/dsl/work/extensions as the extension directory
Enter /home/dsl/work/iso as the directory to hold the new myDSL iso.
Enter nofstab when it says "Enter optional boot time options:".
Follow the remaining instructions, and insert your blank CDR when it tells you to.
When it's done burning, you should have a CD that a normal user, even with sudo powers, cannot mount a partition unless he knows how to do it without fstab, and most people don't.
They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.
Unleash the power of the TILDE~~~
