Talk:Debootstrap to LiveCD
20060710 - This model is very nice! It allows you to start with the basics then taylor for your needs. Keep up the great work!
20060718 - Also take a look at http://live.debian.net/ . It is very nice as well.
Another good one is http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/livecd/documentation.html SNIa 20:59, 25 Feb 2007 (GMT)
Modified kernels and initrd ?
Yes, this worked fine to set up a knoppix from scratch. I had to run it on a debian system first; then I got something that I could 'chroot' into under RedHat.
A few extra items I would like help with ...
- If I want to plug in a modified kernel (built for '686 and maybe with the 'no timer tick' patch), what do I have to do ? Presumably I need to build the kernel, make an 'initrd', and rebuild the boot directory; can you do me a 'howto' ?
I can work on a modified and or custom kernel
