boot problem with customized linux-live scripts


Hello!
I'm trying to create portable debian 5.0.3 distribution using scripts from www.linux-live.org. In order to
do it i modified the linux-live scripts (replaced aufs fs with aufs2
(because of using kernel 2.6.30), replaced build-kernel commands with
debian's build kernel commands, moved out lzma support because of
errors and other minor modifications, moved out squashfs and
squashfs-lzma patches because using kernel 2.6.30). I managed to
compile kernel with my own config file but when
booting from USB Flash drive I'm getting errors I'm using debian's official kernel source 2.6.30. I
modified the kernel config file in order to compile squashfs and aufs
as modules.
How to fix it?

I'm not sure exactly?
I used Remastersys to make my debian live lenny&3/4
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...88#post3740688

However, I know PureOS
is built off linux live scripts and is testing/squeeze
maybe take apart theirs and see how they did it?
http://pureos.org/index.php?lang=english

noticed their using squashfs+zlib
for pureos light...

boot problem with customized linux-live scripts

My USB drive is bootable, I'm sure. The problem is in the 5th line on the sreenshot: mount:...
I made some research and it looks that the line:
mount -n -o remount,rw /
in linuxrc configuration file is causing that error.
It looks like the script can not mount temporary root filesystem from ramdisk.

I just tried to boot pureOS off my USB and I get a similar error
except it says it cant find the livecd.sgn...

I also had an issue booting pld fluxbox, also made with linux live scripts
although it did eventually work...

you dont have any slax dirivatives or anything else that use linux live around right?
these will cause errors too
