Customization Suggestions

#1 Post by mark847 » Sat Jun 04, 2005 8:02 am

I have two minor suggestions:

Add a bat file to the root directory, iso.bat:

mkisofs -N -J -r -o \ubcd.iso -b boot/loader.bin -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 .

This way if some is extracting the files to create a custom cd, you don't have to keep answering the same question about creating an iso file and the ending period.

I add my own bootable images to each version. However, some are old, and some are new. Instead of mixing your images, and my images, I have created another directory, \myimages and custom.scn uses it. This way I don't forget to copy all of my images to the new version, and there are no naming conflicts.

Thanks for all the work. Great Job!

I don't understand the first part, but I agree using a "custom" folder for user images would be very handy. I do that myself.

By putting the ISO.BAT file in the directory root of the UBCD, at least in windows you just need to cd \UBCD and type ISO to generate an ISO image of your custom changes.

Sounds like a great suggestion! I will make sure we do that for the next
release.

Victor,

I hope you add both the iso.bat file, and the myimages directory. I could not tell from your reply which of the two suggestions you are going to add. Thanks.
