How do I create a bootable SALI CD?

Component: sali kernel/initrd Version: 1.5.6

Description

With systemimager, I could create a CD that would allow me to image a workstation on any subnet by communicating to the systemimager server.

Now that I have SALI installed and working fine with pxeboot, I need to be able to create a CD that will allow me to connect to the sali server in the same way.

How do I create an autoinstall CD using SALI?

Thank you in advance for your reply.

  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

It's quite easy to create a bootable SALI CD using isolinux

I shall create a shell script which allows you to generate an iso

Thank you for your reply.

I haven't had an opportunity to read the information on isolinux yet.

It would be appreciated if you could create a shell script that allows us to generate an iso.

In 541:

Added a new directory to the svn, this folder will contain the isolinux stuff, see #56

In 542:

Added some first files to create a bootable cd/dvd/usb, see #56

In 544:

Added a simple setup to generate a bootable iso which can be burned to
an cd or can be used to create a bootable USB disk, see #56

The bootdisk files will be packed with the tar.gz which can be downloaded from out ftp. When unpacked you just have to run the shell script
sali_create_bootdisk. This requires the following tools:

  • genisoimage (on most distributions available as genisoimage package)
  • isohybrid (on most distribution available in the syslinux package)

We have release a new version of SALI which contains the utilities for generating an iso image which can be used for either a cd or on an USB drive.

For instructions see this page:

Thank you Dennis!  :)

I wanted to close the loop with you and let you know that the iso script
worked.  :)

Thanks again for your assistance.

Sincerely,

Katherine Nakazono
