Charles, I found the solution; it seems I was all around it. In summary, there are two methods that will work. 1) copy the austrumi iso to UBCD images directory and rename it to a simple, standard name like austrumi.iso. The mkisofs options I was using were changing the multiple periods in the origi...

Re: Adding Astrumi linux to UBCD??

I'm not familiar with Astrumi so am not familiar with it's boot files or configuration. Clearly it's linux, but there's more than one way to startup a linux system. I might suggest you leave a message on the CDShell forums inquiring about how to set the runlevel using the isolinux command. OK, I po...

Re: Adding Astrumi linux to UBCD??

OK, then I don't know what that 4 is for. Try changing it back to "...ramdisk_start=0 4" and changing ".. init /etc/linuxrc .." to "... init=/etc/linuxrc 5 ..." Bottom line it you want to get it to boot in runlevel 5. I tried that, but it still won't start X. Near the end of the boot process it sta...

Ok, I tried the other method and everything works except astrumi boots into console mode. However, all I have to do is issue the command startx and everything loads just fine. It works!! All I did to get it to work was copy everything from asturmi.iso to the appropriate directories in UBCD except fo...

Hi Charles, Your first suggestion worked. I was able to boot astrumi properly even using qemu runing under XP. Unfortunately, the solution breaks all the mini linux distros listed in bootdsk.scn, except for one listed as [F7] Recovery Is Possible (RIP) V3.1 that distro uses bcdw boot /images/rip.img...

Cheers,

Re: Adding Astrumi linux to UBCD??

Try the following: [snip] - Copy all files from the Astrumi /isolinux dir to an /isolinux dir on UBCD Hi, thanks for the quick reply. If I do the copy to the isolinux directory from astrumi, it's isolinux.cfg and boot.cat files will overwrite the ones that are already there in that directory. Won't...

I tried adding the astrumi ISO to /images and then made an entry in custom.scn like so if ($lastKey == key[f4]); then diskemu \images\astrumi.iso I also tried if...
