I'm trying to modify the installation sequence of Ubuntu Precise. I need add a repository package inside the iso.

I make my own apt repository mirror and add my own packages with

reprepro includedeb  

Then I run


to make my .iso an include in the final iso.

Then I build my customized debian-installer including iso-scan udeb package. After that, I build the fake final iso with: grub-mkrescue

In the process of installation when the iso-scan work takes place it can't find the repo.iso file and installation process stops.

I have searched but I only found things related to debian-installer. I don't know how to do it in Ubuntu Alternate or similar installations.

  • I could write a very good answer about this, but I think you should elaborate a bit more on what you've tried. Be specific. Oh, and solely preseeding isn't going to include a custom package - you can add packages from the regular repositories though (if an internet connection is available at install time). Hint: the server and alternate CDs are using debian-installer. – gertvdijk Feb 5 '13 at 15:42
  • For a Wubi install? You should be able to modify the preseed.cfg file using d-i preseed/late_command ... – bcbc Feb 5 '13 at 17:50
  • @bcbc I know that. But I need to include a .iso image of a repository to enable a local instalation without internet connection. – ssoto Feb 6 '13 at 9:31
