Re: Utility for customize and remasters Livecd
The only way?
I work with our target group (teachers, students, kids) almost every day
and, yes, so far it seems like it is the only way they can (barely) manage.
I would propose that there are other solutions. Off the top of my
head, I would think it is entirely practical to slap a front-end
(web*** or otherwise) on live-build to provide customized images for
that target group.
We can't and have absolutely no desire to provide customized images for
each and every school out there. We give teachers a tool so that they
can produce a custom school specific image for internal redistribution
after they have installed their printers, set up their WLAN access
points, etc. Right now I see no way to provide this functionality via a
web front-end slapped onto live-build but I would be glad if you can
prove me wrong.
You're certainly free to choose another approach, it is just one that
we don't support or recommend.
I am fully aware of this and I can live with that.
But, I think if you explored our way, you would discover there are
benefits to doing it this way and such technical challenges as there
are to rolling it out to your target audience are actually possible
We (developers of the lernstick distribution) use live-build to produce
the official (generic) image and see all the technical benefits of doing
so. It is a fantastic tool for us developers but *absolutely* impossible
to use for normal users that barely can distinguish their word processor
from their operating system. Yes, this is the target group we currently
have to deal with...
