    It produce an image of an installed system. You can install an original version of Debian for example, customize it with your applications, graphics and so on and build and iso image with your system. In same way the metaphora is real, the penguins (system) produce an egg (iso image) and the egg produce a new penguin or n penguins

    I'm looking for a program to customize everything by viewing the desktop, not creating everything and then copying the home... in chroot.
    wow, your system is amazing
    Piero Proietti
    @pieroproietti
    Pepe, dont understand this question of chroot, probably you know systemaback, remastersys and so on, are all old programs to remaster a Linux system, penguins-eggs is just this.
    You can create, in same way, your distro for one school, an office and so on. Also for personal puorpouse

    i don't understand, i can't create a public distro?
    i will use debian as a base is 100% gpl
    Piero Proietti
    @pieroproietti
    Ok, in this case you can build an iso customized in the way you want and need. Of course you can pubish it, becouse it's open source
    you can also fork eggs and do that you want, penguins-eggs is opesource too

    It's great that you don't have problems to be in contact with her every day, it's very important, be thankful for what you have and don't think negative things, I lost my head a little bit months ago because of the confinement and being alone at home, it's very easy. Ciao Piero, I don't understand how you've done such a big project in such a short time. Once again you are incredible.

    @pieroproietti
    Thanx Pepe, but was in not so short time. I started ay work with a system to rebuild usually windows machines to format and restore, so we build a pxeserve, boot then in Linux, save the datas on the server, restore with clonezilla and put back data again. All was build with common bash files, when I thought about eggs I thought to use a modern language for thee script and I choose nodejs and javascript. A good tool help not so little and here we are.

    hello Piero, i'ts possible to change grub options and background?
    Piero Proietti
    @pieroproietti
    Not directly with eggs - at the momenti - not for live session nor for the system installed. For the live session I have same ideas for template like in calamares, for the installed system but you can create and test your grub in your system, and when you will install it you will have again yous settings. If you have same advises about, feel free to sent me. Have nice day, how is going?

    hello Piero, sorry for taking so long to answer. We have installed the guest additions when doing an apt upgrade in linux mint and also updated the kernel, now I have many errors in the boot and I have to start from 0:
    sys subsy devices multi user device
    deb getty .device
    Update manager error...
    I've tried to look for a lot of information on the internet but I don't think I can solve it and I'll finish sooner if I start again.

    I didn't understand your message correctly. There is no way to customize the grub in live and for when the system is installed?

    I understood that not with eggs. I have customized the grub in the installed system and when eggs creates the iso it changes.

    Hola Pepe
    a moment to read and understand the questions...
    well from your screenshot it happen you use antix linux not linux mint, It's right?
    Piero Proietti
    @pieroproietti
    For rhe question about customizing grub, i mean who there is not way to customize the lve boot, at the moment. BUt you are free the customize the system mother and the "child" the new system installed will have the same aspect of the mother.

    hello piero, before i was doing the distro on linux mint, but i passed you the captures because now i'm trying to do it on mx linux, i tried to install eggs but vmlinux and initrd are not in the same location.
    Piero Proietti
    @pieroproietti
    Just yesterday I was tryng to put order in MX. This distro, is based on Debian Buster with same specific changement. MX has own system to create snapshot, a good tool it is called mx-snapshot it work well and you will install your snapshot with the installer of MX (minstall).
    With the actual version of eggs is possible to remaster it too, I'm trying to remaster MX and leave compatibility with minstall installer and calamares too. Actually I have just calamares but there is again same problem to solve. (Particularity in the system installed it is impossible to login from gui until you don't log from console and change to 777 /tmp. At the moment i don't know the reasons of this).
    Piero Proietti
    @pieroproietti
    If you want, you can try their software to remaster your system, it is nice, and for sure more compatible. If You want reamin on eggs, download the last version, work with MX and - first or late - I'll solve that litthe problems.
    For the vmlinuz and initrd.img problem you need just
    ls -s /boot/vmlinux /boot/vmlinuz-4.19.0-12-amd64
    and
    ln -s /boot/initrd.img /boot/initrd.img-4.19.0-12-amd64
    s can help
    I hope this can help
    Piero Proietti
    @pieroproietti
    the right commads is
    sudo ln -s /boot/vmlinux /boot/vmlinuz-4.19.0-12-amd64
    and
    sudo ln -s /boot/initrd.img /boot/initrd.img-4.19.0-12-amd64
