PostPosted: Thu Apr 27, 2017 8:21 am    Post subject: Gentoo ISO source Reply with quote

Is there something like bash script to generate Gentoo ISO (Minimal to be specific)?
The last time I checked, it doesn't include usb-modeswitch and wvdial, which is the only way I could connect to the internet (using modem), also the minimal ISO doesn't even have emerge, I tried to
Code:
$ emerge
, it said command not found, so I can't even install usb-modeswitch.
Thanks in advance.

Hi!,

The Gentoo Live iso is made with Catalyst

But I would suggest you to use a more featured live linux, like systemrescuecd (based on gentoo).
But even systemrescuecd doen't provide wvdial.

What you can do is manually download a stage 3, gentoo-sources files, wvdial and usb-modeswitch, then continue into that system.

Or check any other livecd (debian, ubuntu, knoppix) if they provide the needed tools.

Or try to get some other network adapter (wifi, ethernet...)

Thanks.
Can I modify the already created ISO using catalyst, or do I create it from scratch?

I don't know how catalyst works, but it is a package in the portage tree. Install it and see what it says about controlling the resulting ISO image.

Catalyst creates the ISO from scratch. You have the opportunity to select which packages are contained.

Does sysrescuecd offer release signing yet?

Not sure what you mean by release signing, but the iso can be checked against md5sum, sha1sum and sha256sum; and the sysrcd.dat file (which holds all the apps) is checked against version and md5sum at boot.
