Burned the .iso finally on 2 totally different systems today and booted the desktop with the desktop's own .iso and upon boot (w/ SATA probe needed)..........error "initrd (then options displayed and something something) failed to mount" and "unable to mount (the .sqshfs file) on /dev/loopfs"
Basic system is
Intel Dual Core 2.5Ghz
SCSI hard disk and /dev/sr0 DVD (which does mount the DVD right before the error
Seen the posts about backing down to mklivecd 0.7.1.......don't know why that would help? but if anyone has any other suggestions...........and YES, mediacheck said the disk was fine btw...
--and--BIZARRE mklivecd curiosity error........happening on above DESKTOP system and LAPTOP 1.6Ghz/2G notebook running 184.108.40.206 kernel occurs during "making the compressed image" with debug enabled...
``squashfs: directory ///usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.1/Error inode 0x0xxxxxxxxx``
there are several other similar "inode errors" in the /usr/share/doc/perl directory
would have thought of a hard disk problem, but since these machines are not even connected, nor ever share files this is really weird........both using mklivecd 0.7.2 from repo
