great! i'll try this as i have an POV 330 ion system. Should be the same as the asrock, right? Currently i have the latest beta2 9.11, and all runs fine except for playing DVD disc's.... After a couple of minutes DVD stops playing and goes straight to the XBMC home menu....don't know what's causing this. So i want to try a fresh install, i'll report if any problems...

thanks!

erhnam Wrote:This is our site btw Smile I modified the runXBMC. Just before XBMC starts a file will be unpacked with guisettings and other configuration settings. The settings are optimized for Nvidia ION users. I also removed the amd packages and drivers from the dvd in order to save some space. Samba and proftp are also included. The samba configuration file is configured with some default shares (/home/xbmc/Videos, etc). Further more a script is added to the dvd so Dutch users are subscribed to "uitzendinggemist".

The adjustments to the code are published here: http://www.xbmcfreak.nl/wikixbmc/xbmcfre...passingen/

If there's more interested in this I'll continue on this and make it more international.


hi, cool idea with the special live cd.
I´m interested to bild always a custom live cd.

Can you give me a tutorial or a link to build a custom live cd?

you don't you use filezilla or similar, xbmc doesn't use ftp - sftp instead

filezilla supports SFTP....

Too bad that link is in Dutch....would love to know what you did to tweak the setup...does it boot any faster than the default install? Also how will it take to "apt-get update/upgrade"? will it update just like a normal install?

No I didn't change anything to the boot process. The only thing I changed is the runXBMC bootscript. I added some stuff with apt-get to the environment. It's not so hard but here you go!

A short howto:

Code:
#mount livecd
mkdir /tmp/livecd
sudo mount -o loop xbmc-live-9.11-b1.iso /tmp/livecd

#copy livecd
mkdir ~/livecd
mkdir ~/livecd/cd
rsync --exclude=/live/filesystem.squashfs -a /tmp/livecd/ ~/livecd/cd

#create squashfs temp
mkdir ~/livecd/edit
cd ~/livecd
cp /tmp/livecd/live/filesystem.squashfs .

#unpack the squashfs filesystem
sudo unsquashfs filesystem.squashfs

#chroot the squashfs
sudo chroot squashfs-root/
mount -t proc none /proc
mount -t sysfs none /sys
mount -t devpts none /dev/pts
export HOME=/root
export LC_ALL=C

#change things
you are now in the minimal environment. Add/change stuff, do everything you like! Continue with the next section when ready.

#cleanup and unmount
apt-get clean
rm -rf /tmp/* ~/.bash_history
umount /proc
umount /sys
umount /dev/pts
exit

#repackage the filesystem
sudo mksquashfs squashfs-root/ filesystem.squashfs

#copy the filesystem back to the livecd
cp filesystem.squashfs ~/livecd/cd/live

#regenerate md5sum.txt
cd ~/livecd/cd
rm md5sum.txt
find -type f -print0 | xargs -0 md5sum | grep -v isolinux/boot.cat | tee md5sum.txt

#create iso
sudo pico ~/livecd/cd/README.diskdefines
cd ~/livecd/cd
sudo mkisofs -b boot/grub/stage2_eltorito -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -V "$IMAGE_NAME" -cache-inodes -r -J -l -o ../custom.iso .

#unmount livecd
sudo umount /tmp/livecd
sudo rm -rf /tmp/livecd

At the moment I'm working on something else. I want to integrate boxee into the xbmc 9.11 livecd. Maybe create a dual-boot.

A much better approach would be to use debian-live: http://debian-live.alioth.debian.org/
