One of the tremendous strengths of Morphix, and the main reason my
non-profit has chosen it, is that it very easily allows for
customization of a LiveCD. Want KDE? Place the KDE-MainModule into the
mainmod directory. Want to add OpenOffice? Place the
Projects like morphix are magnificent, however each module needs maintenence outside of debian.
The idea I would like a litle more would be a project to include a live CD base package into debian. Maybe with support from Morphix and others.
A Debian Live CD generator, somthing like jigdo for live CDs that can draw any .deb into a live CD.
That'my opinion too.
few scripts can transorm a debootstrapped debian into liveCD
knoppixLike. in fact there is importants points:
- initscripts needs adaptation (runs autoconf, createq swap (swapfile),
looks for home in usb stick, install the user, launch xsession...).
- autoconf needs to be entirely packaged, as all the user/applications
But AFAIK jigdo is not possible. Because all the knoppix like liveCD use
compressed filesystems (cloop for knoppix and directly derived works, i
use squashfs in my k-mib-ppc, and there is othoer possibility like
gcloop, utx,... ).
