4 news ISOs are available.

    in 64 bits:

    The first ISO is a base NuTyX "rolling" version with a size of 384 Mbytes.

    A 5.3 GBytes ISO base NuTyX "fixed" version which contains a completed binaries repository of the 11.1 NuTyX. You can install a complete NuTyX 11.1 without having to use internet. To install packages from this ISO, onces your base system is installed, configured and booting, it's just a question of mounting the media on the /mnt mounting point.

    Suppose you media is found under /dev/sdc1, uses following command to mount it:

    sudo mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt

    Adapt in consequence.

Just be aware now: When you produce an ISO you NEED to specify the exact kernel version you want to use now. That's because the ISOs today can have both the LTS and the latest one installed on your ISO.so you need to specify which one you want to make the initrd for. Ask me if you have any question.

Okay. Thank you!  :)

By exact, do you mean the kernel number as shown in its description? Such as 4.19.59 for the long-term kernel, and/or 5.1.18 for the latest stable kernel?

Would I add that when I call for
Code: [Select]
install-nutyx 

Such as...

Code: [Select]
KERNEL="4.19.59" \
install-nutyx

...or would I just add it to the other packages that I want installed?

Thanks Thierry!

when you are at: http://nutyx.org/en/generate-iso#18 (Generate the ISO)
instead of doing:

Code: [Select]
bash $NUTYX_TMP/scripts/mkiso
Only if the kernel install inside the future ISO is different from the one of your host machine, you will need to do:

Code: [Select]
bash $NUTYX_TMP/scripts/mkiso `basename $LFS/lib/modules/*`
it means take the version of the installed kernel inside the future ISO
