Debian ‘Sid live’ build system


Very similar as the ‘mklive-stretch’ or ‘mklive-buster' build system see e.g. Here and Forum thread Buster , but this will build from ‘Sid’ ‘unstable’ branch and has many changes and improvements. DebianDog Sid

Rather than just one script it’s now also packed as appimage, reason is that this way it works ‘out of the box’ on most OS’s including modern puppies. The appimage has included e.g. yad, debootstrap, dpkg, xorriso (for creating ISO), so nothing extra should be required to install. Tested on Dpup-Stretch, FossaPup64, DebianDog, Fatdog (but on the latter I needed to install ‘perl’ first from gslapt).

Note that this doesn’t build a Puppy such as when using Woof-CE, but a puppy-like ‘Dog’ system (see more: Dog Linux website)

Download mklive-sid appimage: (or see single script below)
For 32-bit: mklive-sid32
For 64-bit: mklive-sid64

Make executable, e.g:
chmod +x mklive-sid32
Running without arguments it will show usage help, to run with GUI, e.g.:
./mklive-sid32 -gui
It requires root permissions to run, so when logged in as unprivileged user, use sudo, e.g.
sudo ./mklive-sid32 -gui

Here’s also a single script that should work OOTB on DebianDog, , e.g. BusterDog, StretchDog, BullseyeDog:
Attachment and more info here: DebianDog Sid (requirements/dependencies will be downloaded), to use it on Puppy you need to have yad, debootstrap, dpkg, xorriso installed first.

Run the build on a Linux filesystem (ext2 ext3 ext4) not on FAT or NTFS , with at least 3GB free space

(it’s from earlier released build script, mklive-devuan, but you get the picture :)
