If anyone has been following my many long hours and multitude of failures while trying to use the Sparky-Backup-Sys as a reliable tool in my work for charitable interests, I can now officially announce that I have made some discoveries in the general use of that tool and also have successfully created hybrid iso's in a virtualized environment that REALLY WORK outside the vm's and on real hardware.
For a long and drawn out reference, open the other threads by me in this section and read all of my previous posts.
Anyway, the Sparky-Backup-Sys tool is a fork of the original Remastersys project. I don't mind telling everyone interested that pavroo and the rest of the developers have done a GREAT DEED in providing, or attempting to provide such a useful and educational tool.
I now have identified the number one culprit in failures while I was attempting to create working hybrid iso's. It is not the only one but it is the one cause that has plagued me the most.
As soon as I have finished my current billet of work, I am going to sit down and provide, in detail here on this forum, an abbreviated explanation of how I use the tool and the steps I take to almost eliminate any failure in the process.
Not to be offensive and to be plainly stated, this software served to "piss me off" so much that I was determined to solve the issue, once and for all, no matter how long it took.
I am retired now but back in the day, I was a damn good database programmer and operating systems specialist. But my professional experiences were not with Linux. It wasn't created yet or it was still in its infancy.
I have made another promise to myself. When time permits, I intend to brush up on my programming skills and improve this type of tool to such an extent that failures becomes almost an impossibility so long as it is configured and used correctly. When I succeed at that time, all of my work will be donated to Sparky Linux, its developers, and the entire Sparky Linux International community exclusively to show my appreciation for such a fine Linux Distribution.

ps: I have some really cool surprises in store for everyone. Stay tuned.
Best Wishes To All and Thank YOU!!!
