Goodbye Remastersys, Hello Re-Linux!

As some of you well know, Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) was recently released. You all know what that means right? Yup, it's time for another version of Bauer-Puntu Linux! For you Bauer-Puntu users, you will be happy to know that i've been busily working on a 11.10 installment of Bauer-Puntu but ran into a little snag the other day.

You see, I used to use Remastersys to build my custom ISO image for Bauer-Puntu since the beginning. Well I went to install it on my Bauer-Puntu 11.10 build machine and holy crap! Remastersys packed up shop, took their code and walked out the effing door!

My first reaction was to piss myself, then I regrouped and came up with a better plan. I decided to bitch on Twitter about it. Good thing I did too because @tnicholson suggested that I take a look at Re-Linux. This is exactly what I needed! In fact, it is basically Remastersys without the GUI!

I found a good blog article on how to install it, and run it here: (lkubuntu)

So needless to say, Bauer-Puntu is now back on track, and should be out in the next few days! Here is a screen shot from Bauer-Puntu 11.10 running Re-Linux!
