Question Unionfs and Squashfs support


EDIT: I have Unionfs and Squashfs support, but I need the zlib_inflate module

I want to make a live cd using the linux-live scripts (www.linux-live.org), they are very streight forward, however you need unionfs and squashfs support for your kernel.

So how can I add Unionfs and Squashfs support for my kernel?

at the moment I am using Ubuntu dapper, but that could change- it really doesnt matter at this point.

Thx in advance

Looks like both are in Dapper as modules. Both loaded o.k. with insmod on my Dapper, although you need to "cd" to the appropriate directory under /lib/modules.

thx, they do appere to be allready built into the kernel.

However, I am still having problems with the linux-live scripts

the image builds, and it boots (i get the slax logo and boot prompt) but It does not get any further. It does not give me any more messages, only a blank screen.

it also gives me a lot of warnings during the script

Code:

still wont boot!!!

I think the problem is that I dont have the kernel module "zlib_inflate" I have it on my computer as source (/usr/src/linux-source-2.6.15/lib/zlib_inflate)- but not compiled.

How can I add this module?
