geexbox generator (not regular -- tell ya why later)
daemon tools (or other mounting tool)
winrar, 7zip, etc..
cdrw or i use a virtualization tool (vmware) to boot custom cd
open geexbox generator and extract to temp dir (assuming c:\geexbox-generator[version] in windows open up generator.exe and either click "compile" or add whatever modules, codecs, or other options you require (I add real and quicktime codec, add ftp/samba support, etc..)
Ok, now the reason to download generator will become clear, regular iso does not have mkzftree (necessary to "decompress" the filesystem on the cd, otherwise this will not boot) instead of downloading elsewhere, booting linux, etc... it's just easier to compile the iso yourself and I've found other methods unreliable.
After done, you will have geexbox-..custom...iso
Now mount that file in daemon tools (or other), assuming e:\
open tools\win32 found in c:\geexbox-generator[version] in command prompt. (start->run->cmd->"cd c:\geexbox-generator[version]")
and then type "mkzftree -u e:\ c:\ubcd4\"
you should now have c:\ubcd\GEEXBOX and all folders included, it's time to setup ubcd to recongnize it and boot the new item in ubcd and test it.
Code: Select all
MENU LABEL GeekBox Linux v1.1
APPEND initrd=initrd.gz root=/dev/ram0 rw init=linuxrc boot=cdrom lang=en remote=atiusb receiver=atiusb keymap=qwerty splash=silent vga=789 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr
P.S. if the iso is customized with new remote options, framebuffer you will have to look in c:\ubcd4\GEEXBOX\boot\isolinux.cfg and add your own.
I used vmware to boot my new ubcd iso to test my disk before burning and wasting time erasing, burning again..
