RIPLinux ( Recovery is Possible )

16/10/2008

========================================================================
If you want to boot RIPLinuX from a USB Flash drive.
========================================================================

The USB device should have at least 90 MB free for RIPLinuX-6.9.iso.
The USB device should have at least 55 MB free for RIPLinux-6.9-non-X.iso.

================== Install RIPLinuX to the USB drive =================

# sh mkusb.sh RIPLinuX-6.9.iso /dev/sdb1

The above example assumes the USB drive’s partition is on /dev/sdb1!

# fdisk -l “To find the device the USB drive is on!”

If the USB drive is not partitioned and Fat16 or Fat32 formatted,
use the ‘-f’ option, because it must be partitioned and Fat16 or
Fat32 formatted. You’ll loose anything on the USB drive!

# sh mkusb.sh -f RIPLinuX-6.9.iso /dev/sdb “The device must not end
with a number!”

Instead of specifying an ISO image, you can specify a source directory
that contains the contents of the ISO image, laid out the same way as
the ISO image.

# sh mkusb.sh source_directory /dev/sdb1

————————————————————————–
If you want to change or add anything to the Linux system ‘rootfs.cgz’
before you install it to the USB drive, do this.
————————————————————————–

# mkdir /tmp/rip1 /tmp/rip2
# mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /tmp/rip1
# cd /tmp/rip2
/tmp/rip2# gzip -dc /tmp/rip1/boot/rootfs.cgz | cpio -iumdv

Make the changes in the /tmp/rip2 directory, then cpio/gzip the system.

# rm /tmp/rip1/boot/rootfs.cgz
/tmp/rip2# find . | bin/cpio -v -o -H newc | gzip -9 >/tmp/rip1/boot/rootfs.cgz
^^^
“Use the RIPLinuX ‘bin/cpio’ here!”

# rm -rf /tmp/rip2
# umount /tmp/rip1
# rmdir /tmp/rip1

—————————————————————————
There’s also a Windows XP/Vista version of mkusb.sh.
It won’t work under DOS or Win9x!
—————————————————————————

In Windows, run ‘mkusb.bat’ from a RIPLinuX CD, or extract the
contents of the ISO image. The USB drive must be Fat16 or Fat32
formatted.

d:\boot> mkusb.bat f: “Specify the USB drive!”

There are Windows programs that can extract the contents of the
RIPLinuX ISO image.

You can use isox.exe to extract the RIPLinuX ISO in Windows.

Get ‘isox-1.0.exe’ at the RIPLinuX site and extract it in Windows.
Put RIPLinuX-6.9.iso in the same directory as xiso.exe. Read the README.

A directory with the contents of the RIPLinuX ISO will be created.

c:\riplinux\boot\grub4dos\grub.exe etc.
c:\riplinux\boot\isolinux\menu.c32 etc.
c:\riplinux\boot\syslinux\syslinux.exe etc.
c:\riplinux\boot\kernel etc.
c:\riplinux\boot\rootfs.cgz etc.

c:\riplinux\boot> mkusb.bat f: “Specify the USB drive!”

To boot the RIPLinuX system, the BIOS must support booting from a USB device.

ATTENTION!!! ATTENTION!!! ATTENTION!!!

You can also boot a RIPLinuX CD and run ‘mkusb.sh’ on the CD from the
Linux system.

Mount the RIPLinuX CD!

# mount /dev/hdd /mnt/hdd
# sh /mnt/hdd/boot/mkusb.sh -h “For Help!”
# sh /mnt/hdd/boot/mkusb.sh /mnt/hdd /dev/sdb1

The above example assumes your CD drive is /dev/hdd and your
USB drive’s partition is /dev/sdb1!
