how to make customized Devuan .iso

Hello ,


i would like to ask you professionals what the best way is to create an


customized

Devuan Beowulf .installer

that can become .iso


that is possibly installable from iso then to harddrive or usb.



the task is that i would like to include quite some packages that i normally use and then facilitate the install on other computers.


this refractainstaller tool is the right one?
is this feasible?



Thank you!

Re: how to make customized Devuan .iso

Yes, you can create your own live-iso with refractasnapshot, and then install from the live media with refractainstaller.

Re: how to make customized Devuan .iso

Hello

i tried this

sudo refractasnapshot

1. Create a snapshot (uefi enabled)

yielded

sent 9,252,418,803 bytes  received 3,037,547 bytes  108,250,951.46 bytes/sec
total size is 9,239,018,468  speedup is 1.00
/tmp/extracted /home/work
Archive is cpio archive...
Decompression error

then i tried

2. Re-squash and make iso (no-copy)

which yielded

Re: how to make customized Devuan .iso

I'd like to see /var/log/refractasnapshot.log. Send it to me in email or paste it somewhere and give me the link. Or read it and see if there's something obvious. I wouldn't expect the decompression error on the initrd to cause a 0-byte iso to be created.

Edit: I just realized you ran the non-gui version, which doesn't make much of a log file unless you run it with the debug option. (That happens automatically with the gui version.)   Run sudo refractasnapshot -d

Make sure you didn't run out of hard drive space. You might need to exclude some things to make the system copy and the squashfs smaller. (3.9G is pretty big.)

Thanks,

the /var/log/refractasnapshot.log is ndeed 0bytes.

sudo refractasnapshot -d

also gives

Re: how to make customized Devuan .iso

A video of your file manager showing /var/log is not helpful.

Run
nc termbin.com 9999 < /var/log/refractainstaller.log
and then give me the link.

or send the log to me in email. (my screen name at gmail dot com)

Re: how to make customized Devuan .iso

I have no idea how you managed to get an 18GB log file. Try this...

head -n 1000 /var/log/refractasnapshot.log > beginning.txt
tail -n 1000 /var/log/refractasnapshot.log > end.txt

That will put the first 1000 lines and last 1000 lines into text files.
Then try opening them with a text editor and see what's there.

Re: how to make customized Devuan .iso

the .log settled down eventually after shutdown and reboot (several)
at

21.3 GiB (22,898,887,727 bytes)

beginning.txt is

485.2 MiB (508,755,677 bytes)

end.txt is

73.2 KiB (75,000 bytes)


and all lines @end.txt are like

/usr/bin/refractasnapshot: line 479: echo: write error: Input/output error

Re: how to make customized Devuan .iso

Check your hard disk health.

As root:
smartctl -a /dev/sda

(you may need to install smartmontools)

Re: how to make customized Devuan .iso

I don't see any problems with the hard disk.

Run the head command again, but try '-n 2000'

See if you can get a few lines beyond the point where xorriso runs. (about 20 lines past it should be enough) Look for something like this to find it:

xorriso : UPDATE :  0.23% done
xorriso : UPDATE :  3.28% done
xorriso : UPDATE :  11.45% done
xorriso : UPDATE :  19.93% done, estimate finish Wed Dec 25 22:11:41 2019
xorriso : UPDATE :  28.85% done, estimate finish Wed Dec 25 22:11:40 2019
xorriso : UPDATE :  34.11% done, estimate finish Wed Dec 25 22:11:41 2019
xorriso : UPDATE :  36.97% done, estimate finish Wed Dec 25 22:11:42 2019
xorriso : UPDATE :  40.51% done, estimate finish Wed Dec 25 22:11:44 2019

Re: how to make customized Devuan .iso

After doing some test runs, I think I know why you got a zero byte iso - if you use any of the build tasks other than "1. Create a snapshot" you have to edit the config file to set save_work=yes. Otherwise, there's nothing to re-squash or re-pack into an iso file.

These two lines from the log suggest that you stopped it in the middle of a previous run, and /tmp/extracted didn't get deleted. I was able to reproduce these errors, but I did not get any input/output errors, and I did get a normal sized iso.

mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/tmp/extracted’: File exists

cpio: kernel/x86/microcode/AuthenticAMD.bin not created: newer or same age version exists
62 blocks

(Note to self: add /tmp/extracted to the cleanup function.)
