Hey guys,

Just using ubuntu of my usb pen and it works amazing. It even recognised my internet dongle without any issues. Very happy. But the only problem is I want to create a live distro with just packages I need… Such as g++ and Lamp etc.

What is the EASIEST way to go about doing this?

I was thinking use virtual box and create my own custom iso then hopefully just install it to usb using unetbootin?

Would this work?

Here’s a howto:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCDCustomization

Looks like this is the tool to use: http://www.geekconnection.org/remastersys/

so maybe VirtualBox (or whatever) install Ubuntu, remove / configure packages, pass it through remastersys

Good luck!

Yeah I guess that seems the easiest way, just wanted to avoid a hefty download of virtual box… But will try at some other point.
