    66Here some instructions to build SALI from source. To checkout the source:
     
    4343tools/sles_packages.sh
    4444}}}
     45
     46== Creating a bootable CD/DVD/usb ==
     47
     48During these steps we assume you have unpacked the sali-x86_64-1.5.7.tar.gz in /tmp. So we have all SALI files under /tmp/sali-1.5.7.
     49
     50=== Generate the iso hybrid file ===
     51{{{
     52cd /tmp/sali-1.5.7
     53./bootdisk/sali_create_bootdisk
     54CREATING A SALI ISO IMAGE
     55
     56I: -input-charset not specified, using iso-8859-1 (detected in locale settings)
     57Using ISOLI000.SVN;1 for  /tmp/sali-1.5.7/bootdisk/isolinux/.svn/text-base/isolinux.cfg.svn-base (isolinux.bin.svn-base)
     58Size of boot image is 4 sectors -> No emulation

     60 68.09% done, estimate finish Fri Feb  1 16:13:42 2013
     61Total translation table size: 2048

     63Total directory bytes: 22528
     64Path table size(bytes): 170
     65Max brk space used 1a000

     69CONVERTING IMAGE TO HYBRID IMAGE done
     70
     71ISO IMAGE HAS BEEN STORED TO
     72        /tmp/sali-1.5.7/sali-x86_64--hybrid.iso
     73}}}
     74
     75The created iso can be burned by your favorite software to a cd. Or you can use the dd utility to make a bootable USB disk
     76{{{
     77dd if=/tmp/sali-1.5.7/sali-x86_64--hybrid.iso of=/tmp/sdb bs=8192k
     78}}}
     79
     80Assuming your USB disk is not mounted and is available at /dev/sdb
     81
     82=== Add custom boot entries to the cd ===
     83Adjust the file isolinux/isolinux.cfg to your needs to start installation via rsync or bittorrent. Some examples herebelow to generate a custom bootable SALI cd/dvd/usb.
     84
     85If you open the isolinux/isolinux.cfg you can add your custom entries between the comment lines 'BEGIN HERE' and 'END HERE'
     86
     87As an example we choose for the image amd64_squeeze_lisa
     88
     89Installation via rsync:
     90{{{
     91label install_lisa_squeeze
     92  menu label Install LISA squeeze via rsync
     93  kernel /kernel/kernel
     94  append /images/initrd.img PROTOCOL=rsync GRUB2=yes SCRIPTNAME=amd64_squeeze_lisa VERBOSE_LEVEL=2 rw
     95}}}
     96
     97Installation via bittorrent
     98{{{
     99label install_lisa_squeeze_torrent
     100  menu label Install LISA squeeze via bittorrent
     101  kernel /kernel/kernel
     102  append /images/initrd.img PROTOCOL=bittorrent GRUB2=yes SCRIPTNAME=amd64_squeeze_lisa VERBOSE_LEVEL=2 rw
     103}}}
     104
     105 NOTE 1::
     106  If you dont have your dhcp configured with sali-imageserver option, you
     107must add IMAGESERVER=<ip of your image server> on the append line.
     108 NOTE 2::
     109  If the name of the image is different from the scriptname add variable
     110IMAGENAME=<name of your image> to the append line
     111
     112Finally run the command sali_create_bootdisk from the bootdisk directory.
