Is it possible to make a custom version of Ubuntu?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 28, 2007
If possible how would I make a a stripped down version of Ubuntu. What I would like to have is a gui desktop, VLC (with libdvdcss2), Firefox and Open Office Writer. I could always use aptitude to add anything else I might want. I can set up a text only system from my Ubuntu installation disc but adding the ubuntu-desktop package gives me a ton of software I won't need (ie Games and Graphics). I see plenty of Ubuntu based distros (Ubuntu Studio K/X/Ed/Ubuntu and Linux Mint). How can I do that?
Ubuntu Maverick 2.6.37 how to make custom kernel
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 25, 2011
Hi I finally upgraded from 8.10 amd64 to 10.10 amd64 got everything setup, and made a custom kernel with the the sched: automated per tty task groups. Any way wondering if
I can make a stable 2.6.37 or later upgrade that's customized as I remove All unused drivers and optimize for core 2. Using the localmodinfo and the sched: automated per tty task groups patch. Please help! I've been trying to make custom kernels using every other way I can find on the net. I have made a custom kernel using git called 2.6.35-27-kosher.
Also wondering how to upgrade to the latest stable openoffice
custom version of ubuntu server ( like jeos )
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 29, 2008
JeOS is a minimalistic version of ubuntu server edition and is optimized for virtualization.
I wanted to make a custom stripped down version of ubuntu server edition, similar to JeOS. The differences being,
1) I don't want to optimize my OS for virtualization.
2) I have a custom list of apps that i want to be installed when my OS is installed.
I am sure there is a script involved in the creation of JeOS which would generate the iso or its components given a list of packages. I wanted to use this script to generate my own custom lightweight server distro.
Whom should i contact ?

How can I make my own Ubuntu ISO?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 29, 2013
Hey guys, recently I installed Ubuntu 13.04 and installed a couple of programs that the company developers need and also graphically configured so it would have company colors and logos and stuff like that. A company themed Ubuntu.
desktop - copia.jpg
Now I was asked to make an .ISO so that everytime we install it in a new machine it will have all those programs and graphical configurations.
Is there a way to do such thing? Or I can just save some settings and have to modify the rest manually?
Thanks in advance.
Get locked out after server version (ubuntu) upgrade
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 21, 2010
I have just setup a new server whith a host who only provide the hardy distro of ubuntu. I want to upgrade it to at least jaunty, however after upgrading from 8.04 to 9.04, it requires a restart and after it restarts i can no longer connect to it at all. I'm fairly certain it must be reconfiguring the firewall to prevent all access on reboot.
Can anyone please provide some insight on how to prevent this from happening???
Many thanks, Adam

Make a bootable ubuntu USB for Macbook Pro using Windows?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 25, 2012
My Macbook Pro's hard drive failed recently, so I've ordered a new one from Amazon and already trashed the old one. While I'm waiting for the new one, though, I want to try to make a persistent bootable flash drive so I can run ubuntu on my MBP (is it even possible to boot like that, without there being an internal SATA hard drive?)
I have a Windows XP desktop, and a blank 8GB flash drive (FAT32 formatted). I have a Xubuntu ISO, and I tried using Linux Live USB Creator to install it on the flash drive. It finished with no issues, but when I try to boot up the MBP while holding Alt, the flash drive does not show up as a recognized drive.
Am I doing something wrong?
Custom version of linuxmint boots to GNU Grub version 1.99 instead of desktop (urgent
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 8, 2012
To be more exact I was using Linux Mint 11 when this problem came. I used remastersys to make an ISO for the os. already have it burned to a dvd and booting which works fine. how ever when I installed it to a hard drive took the disk out and reboot my computer, it show that gnu grub thing and not the desktop. can anyone pin point what i did wrong or does it have to do with the os grub loader? please I really want to fix this so I can upload my complete custom os to you guys to check out without that freaken grub boot thing showing (please excuse my languish). Also I have uploaded that custom iso if you guys can download it and be able to better identify that problem better. The download is on this youtube video.
