Honestly Michael I'm not bickering my request is valid, the installer
cd cannot be reproduced this makes it a proprietary product, its
closed.&nbsp; You might not have the need to modify the cd in anyway or
reproduce it in another fasion, but I do and I dont mean just any
livecd. My requirement was for it to be as close to the installer cd as
possible. So you were right the first time, why cant the spec files
along with the patch of Catalyst be released or atleast be put into cvs
access for non-end user access?<br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">On 10/20/05, <b class="gmail_sendername">Michael Crute</b> &lt;<a href="mailto:mcrute@...">mcrute@...</a>&gt; wrote:</span><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">

mkisofs is really not hard to do Andrew I can do that, I have
requirements that need to emulate the installer cd. If I just needed to
make a custum cd catalyst is fine or the good old fasion way works too.
The point is your installer cd is useless since it cannot be reproduced
this makes it proprietary, thats not to say it doesnt work as intended.</blockquote></div><br></span>Perhaps we should start another thread to bicker about this, or do as Chris says and move it to the releng list.<div><span class="e" id="q_1070fc53a8a3af59_3">
