System Remastering Application For Debian (Gnome/Jessie)

Postby » 2016-06-24 10:02

Are there any remastering applications for Jessie that work properly and install easily. I've found (respin), which is a fork of remastersys; but it has unsatisfiable deps and no clear instructions about how to install the source. I also found refacta, which doesn't allow you to exit with the cancel button. This app will destroy your system if you can't figure-out how to exit it properly.

I've used Remastersys exclusively with XFCE and LXDE desktops, not Gnome.

It's worked fine for me with Debian Wheezy and Debian Jessie.
I noticed that with Debian Jessie, installing Remastersys would remove
systemd-sysv, but it would still work fine.

With Debian Stretch, installing Remastersys would cause a system freeze
and would not complete.
The solution was to install sysvinit-core, which would include installing
cgmanager and systemd-shim, and would remove systemd-sysv, i.e.
removing systemd and replacing it with sysvinit.

Installation of Remastersys takes a long time on Debian Stretch, because
the process includes running update-grub.

^ that last sentence doesn't seem to make much sense.

there's a newer software that does the same as remastersys (maybe even forked from it), but i never remember the name...
