What do you want to achieve? A remaster for personal use or a distro for sharing?

If a remaster, why wont a different bootloader work and forget AUFS?

If a distro there are many questions, probably all too off topic for this forum.

I will oblige somewhat.

Here is what I use in my .config;
Code:
CONFIG_AUFS_FS=m
CONFIG_AUFS_BRANCH_MAX_127=y
# CONFIG_AUFS_BRANCH_MAX_511 is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_BRANCH_MAX_1023 is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_BRANCH_MAX_32767 is not set
CONFIG_AUFS_SBILIST=y
CONFIG_AUFS_HNOTIFY=y
CONFIG_AUFS_HFSNOTIFY=y
# CONFIG_AUFS_EXPORT is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_RDU is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_PROC_MAP is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_SP_IATTR is not set
# CONFIG_AUFS_SHWH is not set
CONFIG_AUFS_BR_RAMFS=y
CONFIG_AUFS_BR_FUSE=y
CONFIG_AUFS_POLL=y
CONFIG_AUFS_BR_HFSPLUS=y
CONFIG_AUFS_BDEV_LOOP=y
# CONFIG_AUFS_DEBUG is not set
Possibly CONFIG_AUFS_EXPORT=y could be a good one to add. You'd be mad to add more than 127 branches except for experimentation IMHO. I only ever use 6.
Of course this all depends on initrd support AND compiling the generic linux patched with the patches from Junjiro Okajima (they apply cleanly as tested on 3.10.5), not his patched linux which makes AUFS builtin. I do have scripts for this however I will not publish them here as it is far too off topic.
Are you mounting directories or squashfs?
Ask questions on the AUFS mailing list, Junjiro is usually responsive to genuine problems.

Of course you compiled aufs-utils against the kernel headers for userspace too didn't you?

Regards.
That looks about how I had it setup too. So I don't know why the linux live scripts wouldn't work. As far as the second part, yes/no/maybe (make headers_install on the kernel.. and as far as that goes I recompile module tools and iptables to match the kernel as well). You know I did compile aufs-util to match the 3.10.2 kernel (the first kernel I tried, but not the 3.10.5- you think that might be it really?) I configured the kernel ramdisk to use xz compression but that shouldn't be it because it did find the init environment. Maybe I need to look at the squashfs options closer (which linux live also uses). Here in a few a days I plan to make another attempt. I'll try and find the patches you mentioned. I'll compile aufs-util to match it as well. thanks.

Thanks everyone for your help- and especially Micko. I followed your aufs kernel config to the tee and also recompiled aufs-util and it worked. I am posting this from my homemade slackware live usb key. Check out the mount and kernel version!

It took a lot of work to get to this point, so I'm pretty excited.
I'm willing to share if anyone knows where I can upload a 2.7G .iso file to be hosted.
I specifically removed libflashplayer.so and java sdk (needed to compile xbmc) before making the live distro because of licensing. Everything else should have readily available source (and actually I saved my source as well).

Thanks again!

Well done! And good work on being persistent. Some of us are easily pleased with off-the-shelf offerings.
