multicd.sh is a shell script designed to build a multiboot
CD image containing many different Linux distributions and/or utilities.
The advantages to making a CD with this script are:
The ISO images that MultiCD writes can also be written to a flash drive, although the filesystem will be read-only; see the ISOLINUX documentation for more info.
The script can be downloaded from a git repository as a tarball (see the top of the page.) MultiCD is hosted on GitHub. Contributions via GitHub pull requests are welcome.
You can also get the latest development version of multicd with git:
$ git clone git://github.com/IsaacSchemm/MultiCD.git
user@pc$ chmod +x multicd*.sh user@pc$ ./multicd*.shThe script will detect which images are present and make a CD for you. They will appear on the menu of the final CD in the order they are listed.
-c : include an MD5 checksum file (md5sum.txt) -d : drop to a shell prompt before building the ISO (debug) -m : don't include Memtest86+ -i : offer options like ISOLINUX menu color or copying only certain Slax modules (requires dialog) -o [filename] : lets you use another filename for the output instead of multicd.iso -t : run the ISO in QEMU after it is built -v : be more verbose -V : print out the version number -w : put a "press enter to continue" before exiting clean : don't run the multicd.sh script at all - instead, get rid of the symlinks and temporary version files that it makes automatically download : open a dialog with a list of some current distributions available for download
MultiCD has two methods for copying the contents of a boot CD to the new image.
