How is the ISO installer made?

Hi,

I do like your operating system, and so I was wondering how it’s made. How do you compile the ISO from the Debian ISO? If you get what I mean :).

Thanks, and have a nice day!

Hello

Rebellin is made using Debian’s official Live Tools. Do one thing. Download the latest Debian stable. It’s Jessie. Configure its repos correctly and install the package called ‘live-build’.

apt-get install live-build

Start from there. This package and others that it pulls, has got all the scripts needed to build a live Debian system and customizing it. You don’t have to download the Debian’s ISO and dismantle it and rebuild again. The live-build tool builds the ISO for us using packages. Here are two useful links:

About Debian Live:

https://wiki.debian.org/DebianLive

The documentation:

https://debian-live.alioth.debian.org/

This whole thing is hard for a new user. So, I’m actually in process of creating a complete course on building your own Linux based Operating System using Debian’s tools.

    Just a small question – can live-build create an ISO with specific repositories and packages that aren’t necessarily installed on the system it’s built on? (because I couldn’t find that). Thanks.

Aha, I see! So that is what you use to compile Rebellin!

The documentation seems a bit “not completed”, there isn’t much to it.

Thanks for your reply!
