Perhaps Jeff or someone else here could shed some light on how easy or difficult it is to customize a Blag install CD with extra background bitmaps?
Send me the images as attachments to me if you think they'd be good to include in blag. I have a few images in there now which are most emphatically not blag images. Dohza.
Plus, I'd like to tweak a Blag install CD to feature a few extra apps (namely Java, OO.o), and a custom FF 3.0 with preloaded bookmarks file and extensions, etc?
Bookmarks? heh. You want to help clean up the *blag* bookmarks by any chance too? http://bugzilla.blagblagblag.org/show_bug.cgi?id=634
I dont know what the best way would be to include firefox extensions. There are a number of different approaches, like just building them into the firefox.rpm.
To add to the CD, you'd need to edit the pungi kickstart file and add them to comps.xml.
For instance, say I'd like to have a couple extra folders and files present in the default desktop (for all users). Is there a place where I could add those in the install cd?. Any way for Anaconda to tweak the default gnome desktop post-install before the initial log-in?
Any files you add to /etc/skel get added to all user accounts when they are created. So one way is to just plonk them into there.
Check the (old) sckript blag-firstboot for ideas on how to configure the default gnome post-install.
Too many questions, I know...
No prob, that's what we're paid for!
PS: Don't worry I don't want to create a fork ;-), just for in-house use and ease of install...
Heh, but perhaps some of the things you want could be in blag itself, not just your build. :)
