Thank you for respin-mint_1.1.0; it produces a fine Backup of my Mint 17.3 system. And it waits at the mdm prompt for me to enter my username and password. However, it has me already logged in under my username in the virtual consoles which gives me (and anybody who’s interested) six back doors into the system.
When asked to produce a ‘Dist’ version, it produces a Live CD with any username I choose and follows the example of the original disk by assigning an empty password. But the modified mdm does not recognise the empty password! However, all is not lost because I can assign a password using one of the virtual consoles which are already open to my username.
This happens on both my Desktop and my Laptop.
That said, I repeat that I do enjoy using Respin!
Sadly i can´t say respin is the best, but maybe you can help me with that.
If there is another platform to ask this question, let me know.
I am trying to build a dirstro (sudo respin dist cdfs). I also tried without cdfs. In both cases i see a message :
cannot read /lib/live/config/1100-policykit File or Folder does not excist.
I am using Sparkylinux xfce stable
Let me know if you need more info to answer my question.
Thanks in advance,
I am so sorry I missed these comments!
So, if you first respin dist cdfs… then after that is completed, use the respin custom.iso option – this could work for you.
I have heard of sparky but I’m not sure – is it debian based?
I think I know the answer.
Cannot respin a live… can only respin installed OS…
I dont try respin but thank you anyway for your work and spending time
Thanks for continuing to make Linux remasters!
Just a question about what I found in the documentation:
“Nvidia and ATI proprietary drivers are disabled at the kernel level by ubuntu’s casper scripts – no workaround”
Does this mean that if I have an ATI video card, I CAN’T make a custom version of my favourite GNU/Linux distribution, or does video quality just degrade?
I have pulled over the dot.zip file from github. There is a respin-2.0-1.deb file that I executed and it downloaded 11 packages that it needed. After that there is no indication that respin is actually installed.
Simple commands like respin –help returns “respin not found”.
In addition I could not see any instructions on how to make a backup.iso or a respin once it is installed. Can you point me to any additional information? Regards Ian.
Hi. Did you check? Debian?
to output to a file
dpkg –get-selections > outfile
I just tested the Ubuntu one and it works. Typing respin in the CLI will initiate the cli version. The GUI version is found in the menu.Can you tell me which base you are using?
Thanks for making a GNU/Linux backup program for my favourite GNU/Linux distribution.
I do have one problem, a big problem at that: when I installed the latest DEB package, I can’t access the program by command prompt.
After installing the program through the .DEB, the shell cannot recognise the syntax and it disregarded it.
Is there something I should do?
Disregard that last comment.
I had to dig deep through the bowels of the Linux Mint files, namely the CONTENTS directory.
Sorry to bother you. Keep up the good work! We’re counting on you!
