Custom iso and the overlay
« on: 02. March 2016, 19:14:24 »
Hi.

As some of you might know, I build my own custom iso, from a modified xfce-minimal profile.

But since the transition to Manjaro Tools 0.11, my overlay from xfce-overlay does not get included in the iso. My programs from Packages-Xfce does get included, but not the overlay, where all my theming and settings are, including some file fixes for some of my apps.

Any idea what could be wrong?
I've tried with iso-profiles package and the manjaro-tools-iso-profiles git repo. Neither of them worked. It worked fine in 0.10. So what has changed with the overlay inclusion?

The desktop-overlay must match the profile name.

eg

xfce-minimal
|
|----xfce-minimal-overlay

Alright. The overlay works, but since yesterday, when I create my iso, it will not go to the graphical interface.

When it's suppose to load the xfce desktop, it just goes to a black screen with a blinking cursor. Just like when xorg does not work correctly.

Any idea what is wrong?

Correction. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
in virtualbox it has not worked yet (I've tried about 10 times, with different build versions of my custom iso)

Nevermind me. I figured it out.

I had to remember to include [multilib] in my 64-bit iso's. :P Else the graphics driver installs fail, but the iso still gets built.

It works like a charm now, and I've made my ISO's available for download.

Is this your unity profiles?
Is it on github?

No, I haven't looked into Unity for a while now. It's a modified xfce-minimal I'm using. :)
