Bug Description

Hi,

SaLT is new Live system (http://salix.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/salix/salt/tags/0.1/) used by Salix Live (http://www.salixos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=3117). This system could be used by any other Slackware-based distributions, and, with minor modifications, on other types of distributions.

I've made modifications in the source code of Unetbootin to supoort such a system.
I've attached the patch to the bug report (I've used the latest sources from git).

Contact me if this patch is not correct or if anything is missing.
Thank you.

Thanks for the patch! I see you've hard-coded the version in the patch; to improve maintainability (ie so I don't have to update UNebootin every time you make a new release), could you perchance set up redirectors that will always point to the latest version of Salix, for the appropriate editions? Ie, something like http://salix.sourceforge.net/salix-latest-kde-64.php which looks something like:

<?php
header( 'Location: "http://downloads.sourceforge.net/salix/13.37/salixlive-kde-13.37-64.iso' ) ;
?>

Just put it into a php file, upload to the Sourceforge website, and change the patch so that it uses the redirectors instead (and remember to update the redirectors every time you make a new release). Thanks again!

Ok.
I've added support for Salix regular ISO too. And as you requested, I've added some "latest" links, so that you don't have to release a new version of unetbootin for each new release of Salix.
Please, review.
