Install remastersys in Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Haron

If you want to make an image of your current Linux machine, use remastersys as follows:

  1. Add "deb remastersys/" (without the quotes) to /etc/apt/sources.list
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get install remastersys
  4. sudo remastersys backup custom.iso
  5. burn the iso image to a CD.

  1. Thanks for your brief, but useful post. However the repository mentioned above does not work any more. It is now dependent on your Ubuntu version. For example, to install remastersys on Hardy use the following repository :
    # Remastersys
    deb ubuntu/

    See remastersys home page for details.
