Remastering Knoppix

Seminar

This paper will show how the author customised the Knoppix live Linux on CD distribution for use at an annual holiday camp. Topics include the requirements that the organisation listed, the translation of requirements into package changes, how Knoppix works (briefly), the classification of changes according to the filesystem being changed, the preparation of the mastering system, actual changes using chroot, and creating the ISO9660 image. The author's own work consists of customisation packages produced as Debian archives, and the remastering scripts.
