Currently the mak-installer.rb works well but only under Windows. That means, if I want to build a DVD, I need to runs the script under windows and after that copy the file on the system I want to use to build the ISO. This is not really handfull because the whole process is GNU/Linux centric. As NSIS as also a Linux version this would be really an improvement to be ablle to run make-install.rb also on GNU/Linux.

Discussion

  • Some tips.

    • makensis over linux or using wine
    • ruby
    • change \ for / in the build tree function
     
  • It work fine with wine. If an installer for windows, I recommend using wine. What do you think?

     
  • wine if for me a workaround, not a solution.
