Recommend to uncompress the tarball file into the directory that have large space of partition

 $ tar xzvf  tux2live-x.x.x.tgz  -C /your/

Otherwise, you can setup "output" and "temp" directory via "--outputdir" and "--tmpdir" parameters during executing command. Please visit HelpManual for more detail manual page of parameters

 $ svn export tux2live

System required package

You can run ./tux2live -c to identify what packages are necessary but missed
* Please refer ReuqiredPackage to check necessary package


The follow actions need "super user" privilege

 $ sudo ./tux2live -b
 $ sudo ./tux2live -b --tmpdir /mnt/large_space/tmp --outputdir /mnt/large_space/output -I user01
 $ sudo ./tux2live -b --mkrootfs --mkiso -o my-tux2live-cd.iso

Note :
You only want to update root filesystem of live system and rebuild the iso file if you have done before. Only use " --mkiso" to rebuild iso file if you onlu modify the boot parameter of isolinux. The advantage is system don't have to re-run every procedure from head. Of course , you have to make sure it has no dependency issue for each procedure.
