OmniBoot v1.5

The folder tree of the OmniBoot filesystem cannot be used in total on smaller optical media like CDs or DVDs. As HD-DVDs are not that common and older systems will never be able to use them, there are CD and DVD-selections of the complete project which are created by the om-script as well. Please check out the content tab to view in column Int(egration) how modules are currently spread over selections. As any function of the script, also this one and its options are explained shortly by the built in online help of the om-script. You get that help if you just type at the path boot/make/omnibootbash ./om

Isos will be placed in a folder called "output" aside the folder filesystem. Also a folder "isoroot" will be created aside of "output" where temporarily the various isos are compiled. Please keep this folder empty therefore, since the om-script will always delete everything it finds there on start-up of iso-creation.

If you typebash ./om aall basic selections will be created. You get a base version of ~190MB, a CD-version of a bit less than 700MB and 4 DVD-versions, where the first DVD again contains base and CD and the 3rd and 4th are dual layer DVD images. Also a micro-version is created of about 4MB. Finally every module is put into a stand-alone iso, usually giving you some more functions than the original distro at least at boot-time.

The process described in the previous paragraph can be split into two steps.bash ./om abcreates everything from micro to the DVDs, andbash ./om amcreates all stand-alone isos of the various OmniBoot modules.

You can also create any single stand-alone iso or selection-media alone, by doing for instancebash ./om cd iorbash ./om debian iTo get all available options you just rememberbash ./omwill always show you all basic options of the script. Slitaz and the UBCD are contained in so many versions, that they are not by default created with the a or am option. But if you like you can create both like all other single stand-alone isos - as the online help informs you.

There you will also see 3 more options as "nonfs", "complete" and "seed". "complete" is just everything that is found in the folder "filesystem". That way you can also easily add stuff by just throwing it into that folder. "nonfs" is a compilation of everything that doesn't need any fileserver as nfs or nbd after booting via pxe (from a dhcp-/tftp-server). And seed is basically for development, the reduction of the full filesystem to everything that is not configured for download in scripts.
