j1alu; I'm gonna try it you know
I wanted to use remastersys on squeeze/sid install
however, it bonks out and says squashfs-modules are not available for squeeze/sid
is that true??
if live-helper can do the same job
that would be great
thing is the following: im much of a noob, i read a how-to or a docu and give it a try. So: if it doesnt work im screwed.
To make it short:
im running on sid and checked for squashfs-modules and theyre availiable, but i aint got them installed at all.
I got live-helper installed and thats it...
now that i write i come to think: in the newer kernels (2.6.30***) the squashfs-support might be compiled into the kernel... and thats why there might be problems (if using it with older kernels like lenny..).
For a while i had debian-lenny installed for the only purpose to run live-helper, but these problems are gone now ( i kept lenny as he`s such a cool guy :-) )
I just tried if live-helper would work to make an image of antiX after configuring it, and it did work
(but i think antix has got its own tools to get that result and im not sure if i didnt screw it completely: it booted and i could install it, who knows what will happen in the long run...)
Its a "go or no-go" for me. atm i aint got problems. Your mileage may vary, just give it a try :-)
(there are several how-tos over at forums.debian...search for live in the how-to section.)
im gonna look in your ram-explanations, sounds cool (like the rest of the stuff you do) but im pretty spare on time atm.
