Creating GNU/Linux live CD

Universal Linux Live scripts

With Linux Live scripts can make image of any GNU/Linux system. Short and straightforward howto is on Version 6 should make live CDs almost out of the box (⚠️ but I haven’t been lucky with it, please tell me if you know how to do it). Great compression ratio.


You can either make image from running system with bootcd (configuration is in /etc/bootcd/bootcdwrite.conf) or install new system on the CD with official Debian Live scripts.

There are some other programs/scripts listed on Debian Wiki.
