-The general goals of this project are:
Create an HFS image that contains a system capable of booting and running GUI from a DVD environment.
Fuse it to a bootable ISO image that contains a bootloader, creating a hybrid ISO.
Enable the use of Dock, Finder, and compatibility with most OS X software.
Enabling at least a 10.4.4+ system to work
Bootloader: I'm currently using the HOTiSO install image that's floating around. The bootloader works fine for this purpose. In the future, we'll probably switch to using the scripts that were used to create the HOTiSO image in the first place.
GUI: WE HAVE A DOCK+FINDER!!! Developer modbin has been able to get Finder+Dock working with 10.4.4/10.4.5 install DVD. Bugs still exist, but the GUI system is currently debugged.
CXLauncher is no longer being used [it was slow as hell with rosetta anyways]
System: Once again, modbin has come through and figured out the files that need to be added to the patched install DVDs in order to create a LiveDVD capable of running most applications. And again, this will always be under constant debugging/development to test for compatibility, etc.
RAMDisk: Currently, modbin is using rc script ramdisk creation, which is a working temporary solution. Ideally, a global ramdisk that creates them on demand would be the best solution. Adapting Charles's ramdisk system from BootCD sounds like a good idea.
Startup scripts: We are still looking for a startup script that can take care of launching the system services. Currently, Dock/Finder are being manually launched along with any other services we need. Ideally, we should get LaunchDaemons to work. However, this may not actually be a rc script problem...
GUI: Dock+Finder bugs will be smoothed out as they are encountered.
