I'm new to this remaster lark and gave it a go.... with no success
I have read the forum in depth and having excluded /home I tried again and made a livecd.... but it wouldn't boot. kernel panic!
I reread this thread and saw that with my kernel I should use the --ufs unionfs option. I copied the suggested code below and tried again. This is what happened:
[root@nerdnet@no5 pclinux]# mklivecd --ufs unionfs --root / --tmp /tmp --workdir /root/tmp/livecd/ --nodir ^/tmp,^/root/livecd_iso/,^/root/temp/livecd/,^/mnt,^/media,^/home /root/livecd_iso/livecd.iso
mklivecd, version 0.7.2, http://livecd.berlios.de/

The final livecd.iso wasn't made
However, in /root/tmp/livecd/ are 2.4 Gb of files that look like they are ready to be making into an iso - they just aren't! Does this make sense? I seem to have all the files in places but no iso.
Any ideas what went wrong? Or perhaps what I shold do next?
