Customized .iso question

Hi thierry!

I finally got around to trying the "build your own customized .iso". Everything went great except for one issue. Before I generated the squashfs files, I looked at the containing folder. I noticed there was no Home folder that had been generated. I started to copy mine to it, but decided to go ahead without it. Of course, I got an error that no Home folder was present. It still produced the .iso, so I'm excited about that...will be a while before I can try it live.

My question is...

Is the lack of a Home folder intentional so that the user can add their own customization before generating the squashfs files and .iso?

Thanks again for such a great system!  :D

If you create a user while you are in the chroot building your own customized NuTyX and you choose then to create a new user with the command:

--- Code: ---setup-nutyx -cu
--- End code ---

A /home/<yournewuser> folder will be created. At the generation of the squashfs files, it will be included, and onces you launch the live (for example) no new user will be created. Same if you install it, it will have your <yournewuser> configured and valid.

And this feature works for other configuration parts:

network:              setup-nutyx -cn
language(locale): setup-nutyx -cl
clock:                  setup-nutyx -cc
keyboard:            setup-nutyx -ck

So yes the lack of a Home folder is intentional in a normal ISO generation. That's actually how setup-nutyx knows if they is a user or not already configured

Do not hesitate to ask me if not clear

HOORAY!

Despite not including a Home folder during the build, when I tried the "Live" option, it asked me to create a user before booting into the live system, and...it had a Home folder! Amazing!  :D

Thank you for the tips! I will play around with it some more and see what happens.

Is it possible to use the same build to customize it more, or do I need to start a new build? Either way is fine with me...yesterday was mainly just a learning experience.  ;)

Thank you!

Absolutly, that's what I'm doing all the time when I update my custom ISO.

Go directy to: http://nutyx.org/en/generate-iso#9 and go on, you can skip http://nutyx.org/en/generate-iso#10 if you didn't update the kernel. Yes even update your custome ISO with newer version will works

Worked like a charm!  :)
