An CD image gets created from the current system by the script CREATE-CD. This happens with the following command:
<path to the myLinux package>/compile scripts/CREATE CD
The Package listing must be complete and unchanged. It gets copied as an archives on the CD.
Ideal way would be, if the myLinux package would be located on an different partition than the current system - like it was at the beginning of the compiling process. In this case the partition must be mounted in /mnt. This happens automatically, if the partition before beginning of the compiling were indicated in the configuration file mylinux.conf.
Naturally contents of the folders /mnt and /proc were not copied on the CD during the image creation, just as little like the still in the master directory contained packages and SOURCE listings.
The several temporary folders and developed files in the master directory and are again deleted. A folder /CD, which contains the complete CD contents, remains and the image /livecd.img itself.
If the three SOURCE folders are deleted before, the storage requirement amounts about 2,4 GB.
The script implements several steps:
Remark: The preinit-script has still another useful feature - it still looks before the examination of the CD-drive assembly a Windows disk with a file preinit and runs these. In this way the behavior of the live-cd can be modified.
