Is it possible to download the installed software installers, and/or the Software Sources list? I'd like to make sure I have all that if some unfortunate event happened, and all I'd have to do is run them. Thanks. I'm still learning more and more about Ubuntu and it's really cool! :)
SystemRescueCd 1.5.5 is the latest update to the Gentoo-based system rescue Linux distro. It comes with updated kernels and several other changes. The biggest new additions are new tools to make USB installs easier on both Windows and Linux host machines.
I want to create a live Linux USB, that would have support for old and new devices (probably having two kernels installed, that you chose on boot, depending on the PC using). I would also like to be able to boot from a Mac.
So basically, I would like to create a boot everywhere live USB.
Every Linux distribution is different in terms of how software is installed. Linux distributions use different installation file types, package managers, and commands for installation. Even within a single form of Linux, there are different types of package managers.
I am writing a program in Java, and when I distribute it, I want to offer users a version for those that do not want to install Java. I need a program that I can use to generate installers for Windows, Mac, and Linux that I can bundle the JRE with so the program can work even if Java isn't installed. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Is it really that hard to create installers for linux? I just don't understand why we have to install from source all the time, even with the copy paste instructions things usually go wrong and besides that, its really tedious.
