Umm... INX stuff  is in Bash, so the .iso has all the relevant files
right there, in /usr/local/lib/inx (symlinks in /usr/local/bin to
the scripts etc.)  ... or have I misunderstood (again) ? ;-)

Alternatively, you can get the /usr/local stuff from Launchpad via bzr:


bzr init-repo scriptsandfunctions
cd scriptsandfunctions
bzr branch lp:inx trunk

and so on...

I've merged all the 'unstable' latest to "trunk" on LP, so currently
unstable and trunk should be identical.

If you want to make a custom build, you can use the 'buildinx' script.

( /usr/local/sbin/buildinx )

Or, download the script directly


You need an Ubuntu or INX install to run it (although possibly it will
run on Debian - I haven't tried, but you do need to use the Ubuntu
Hardy 8.04  repos.

There's also an html version of 'man buildinx' in the  directory
linked above, if you don't want to fire up INX to read it:


Let me know, if that doesn't answer the question...
