Thanks for moving my last post. I wrote it before the warning appeared
in my folder, sorry.

Hello, please assist and inform me what is the well known path and how
to create a really tiny LIVE-Boot-CD with only some packages like a core
or a base-system(not more than 50 I think). Found some small infos from
other distros but wont change the distro for now. Thanks in advance.

That’s precisely what Suse Studio is for, my friend:

Welcome – SUSE Studio

Enjoy!

I visited SUSE Studio before but the resulting filesize is around
240MB. Is there no possibility to get a smaller result?[color=darkred]

-=WELCOME=- new poster…we are happy you have an interest in
openSUSE, however think on this:

given that you have not told us what packages you selected, nor what
are the needs of the studio product, how could we possibly know what
to suggest??

like 1: did you include X though you don’t need it?

like 2: did you include a desktop environment? if yes, why and which
one? if there are smaller DEs why not use one of those?

like 3: if you must have a DE did you select only the must have
(for_your_ needs) pieces of it?

like 4: did you include networking though it is unneeded?

get the idea of the amount of information you must provide with such
a question?

and, please note: imho, if your goal is a small footprint, you are
not gonna get much better than the already existing and ready to roll
DSL which weighs in at 50 MB, see ‘DistroWatch.com: **** Small Linux’
(http://tinyurl.com/broyf)

of course, if you don’t need a desktop (who would??) you can make it
REALLY tiny and still network, run a mail-server or be the heart of a
hardware firewall device or phone or refrigerator control device or or
or or or.

perhaps a review of this “How to ask a question the smart way” FAQ
will be helpful to you: ‘How To Ask Questions The Smart Way’
(http://tinyurl.com/anel)

it might, for example lead you to a quicker smile than available by
simply asking questions that can not be answered without a fully
functional crystal ball…(mine is broken and out for repair) :slight_smile:

Thank you for your friendly answer.

At first it will be be nice if there will be a description of the magic
which is behind SUSE Studio and how can someone do that by hand. I
figured out that there is genisoimage, zisofs-tols and squashfs but how
to use them to have a working LIVE-CD which can act as a
Installation-Media?

No GUI, only the console

Networking and yast2-live-installer are a must have to install all
after installation needed applications via zypper.
Also rpm and lsb, lsb-release are a must have to create it as
compatible as possible.

DSL comes with apt and without rpm?
But I want rpm! This is because the LSB Distribution Test Suite needs
it.

But you have to chose a profile at SUSE Studio and when choosing the
smallest possible(JeOS) you get 190 packages or so.

Are these really all needed?

My idea is to build a system where there is a borderline between the
basesystem which is as LSB-compatible as possible and comes from a good
known distro and the userland applications which should come direct from
the programmer group or a independent source like OpenPKG(OpenPKG
Project). So everybody could concentrate on what he can do best. Also I
dont want the used Boot-Splashscreen(build with SUSE-Studio-hint).

It would also be nice if Tumbleweed with Current could be choosen as
repo.

To help NNTP users, I have quoted the above so that it can be seen in
the suse-studio thread area. After I confirm this post makes it through
the NNTP gateway, I will delete this on the web side (but leave it on
the NNTP side). I hope this admin action of mine makes the thread more
readable in the NNTP suse-studio area.
