Unable to create custom ubuntu mini iso

Asked by Raghu Raman Nagarajan on 2019-09-20

Hi Cubic team,

I am unable to use cubic for creating custom ubuntu mini installation.

The ubuntu mini iso is present at:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/MinimalCD

I am using the iso :

64-bit PC (amd64, x86_64) (Recommended)
Ubuntu 18.04 "Bionic Beaver" 64MB (MD5: 8388f7232b400bdc80279668847f90da, SHA1: cce936c1f9d1448c7d8f74b76b66f42eb4f93d4a)

Can you please let me know how to resolve this issue to help me create a cusom ubuntu mini iso?

Thank you.

With Regards,
N.Raghu Raman.

You can not customize the mini.iso.

FYI, Cubic can customize an ISO that has a structure similar to the example below.

Notice the filesystem.squashfs?
This is a compressed Linux file system, and this is what Cubic allows you to customize.

The min.iso downloads all required files during installation, so there is no compressed Linux filesystem on the ISO for Cubic to customize.
