    Asked also at PCLOS forum.

    Always had success & ease with remasterme. Till now. I guess it's still successful, just not easy this time. The completed .iso has always shown up in /home. I checked not there. The size of /root increased by the size of the remasterme .iso. So I know it's there in /root. But even when I enable show hidden files & search file:///home/xxxxx for pclinuxos-2007.iso & *.iso it's nowhere to be found.

    Here the terminal output.

    [xxxxx@localhost ~]$ su

    [root@localhost xxxxx]# remasterme

    Found it in root. Tried to move it. Really flummoxed. Couldn't move it. So deleted it.

    Did another remaster using Terminal SUM this time instead of Konsole. Went faster by about a minute. Choose to move to Desktop. Then the .iso disappeared. What's going on?

    Here's that output.

    Edit: Info from PCLOS forum. "After the last remasterme upgrade (or was it the one before the last?), it is being placed in the /root directory." Thanks, t*******.

    I thought I was having 1 of those: Step away from your OS NOW b4 you break it moments.


    I finally just burned a copy to DVD. And am using the resultant LiveDVD to post this. To test it. Oh well. It'd been about 2 months since I burned my last remasterme .iso.

    Now to reboot to my HDD & chase down the .iso & delete it. What a pita. Please Tex or whomever change back remasterme.

    you can probably move it to your desktop like this -
    sudo mv /root/*.iso ~/Desktop/

    and if you want to delete it, do it as root, because you won't have permission to do it normally if it was created by root. after it's on your desktop you can run this, but make sure there aren't any other iso files you want to keep on your desktop!
    sudo rm -i ~/Desktop/*.iso

    with the -i option it should ask if you want to remove each file that matches *.iso, if it's the iso you want to delete just press y then enter.
