Hi there all,
This is a bit of a tricky one, and I'm not sure what is happening, but let's see if anyone has any clues.
We've been successfully using remastersys to take a vigin release linux distro (typically Ubuntu 10.04 and 11.10), install it on a PC, install remastersys then run the updater to get all system updates, and install a couple of packages, then remaster.
This remastered ISO is then used to do a network install over PXE, which works fine as it boots, maps an NFS mount to the PXE server to load the install set and then dumps you to a live desktop with an icon to 'install' and be taken through the install wizard. Sounds ok, right?
Yes, to a point, but I want to use preseeding to pass the installer all of the answers to the questions it will ask anyway, and the user needs to do nothing - the OS will just install with my chosen settings. I have researched it, and yes, on boot it finds the preseed configuration file, parses it, and starts to set the code page, locale etc which you can see whilst the loading screens run with text output. It all looks good! But ... then it dumps me to a live desktop, with no install, and no configuration has been done, as if it just ignored all the work it had started.
Has anyone got any experience with this or ideas?
Well done remasterys anyway - it's bloody good!
