I want to remaster ubuntu Lucid in maverick, is it possible? Is there a conflict?

For example when I do the chroot, or to update the repository in the new ubuntu environment, (from the "iso" which I extract), or something else..

and is it possible to remaster Ubuntu 32bit from 64bit machine?

There is a comprehensive document on remastering the live CD here. While it is not trivial to create an Ubuntu amd64 CD on an i386 system, creating an i386 CD on an amd64 system should work without issue.

thank you. but what about remastering Lucid in the maverick? (With the same architecture) – squallbayu Oct 13 '10 at 12:34

When you try to chroot from a 32-bit to a 64-bit enviroment you get an error, it won't chroot. I haven't tried the other way round, but have read it is the same.

If you are using the method described on the wiki, it should not matter what release you are using to do the modification. You will have problems trying to remaster a 64-bit system on a 32-bit system, but not the other way around.

oh, thank you for your link for customization ubuntu. it is really helpful for me. but I idly remastered Ubuntu Lucid 32bit on my Lucid 64bit ubuntu machine with Ubuntu customization kit. and it can run perfectly, could be installed as well. Is the live cd that I made it absolutely perfect or there any that I miss? – squallbayu Oct 13 '10 at 15:54
You're right about that. I've corrected my answer. – ændrük Oct 13 '10 at 20:48
