I need help getting my minime 2010 remaster to boot. This is my first attempt at making a remaster so I guess what I'm asking for is help making a proper remaster.
The long version....
I made a fresh install of minime 2010 on a single 6GB partition using the procedure Texstar outlined.
I commented out the sections in /usr/share/draklive-install/drakelive-install regarding required services and deleting the guest accounts before install. However, I did not find the section
# Setup for root password and create new user at 1st boot
system("rm -f $::prefix/etc/sysconfig/finish-install");
open FINISH, '>', "$::prefix/etc/sysconfig/finish-install";
print FINISH "FINISH_INSTALL=yes\n";
print FINISH "LICENSE=no\n";
print FINISH "LANGUAGE=no\n";
print FINISH "KEYBOARD=no\n";
print FINISH "TIMEZONE=no\n";
print FINISH "NETWORK=no\n";
print FINISH "AUTHENTICATION=no\n";
print FINISH "USERS=with_root\n";
print FINISH "USER_AUTOLOGIN_FIRST=no\n";
print FINISH "GLX=no\n";
But That was written for pclos2009 so I'm not surprised that 2010 would be different.
The install went perfectly and I did remember to un-comment the changed sections in the file after install.
I setup my system the the way I wanted it and tried to make a remaster.
First I commented the line
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
in /etc/fstab and then rebooted so tempfs would not mount.
I then edited /usr/bin/remasterme to...
mylivecd --md5sum --nodir ^/tmp --lzma --bootloader iso pclinuxos-2010.iso
Then as root ran
Making sure my / partition was the only thing mounted.
Then of course ran
The only output that concerns me during remasterme was this.
Subroutine run_program::formatError redefined at /usr/lib/libDrakX/common.pm line 8
Is this a problem or one of those quirks that I should ignore?
After remasteme I then burnt the new 674.1MB .iso to a CD-R with K3b.
Now, booting the new Live CD...
I tried every boot option, safe boot, video safe mode, copy to ram, and media check. They all end the exact same way.
> Error! Warning, installation of driver failed...

Please wait: Detecting USB mass-storage devices.
cat: can't open /proc/sys/dev/cdrom/info/info' : no such file or directory...
Error: No suitable media for the livecd content found.
Workaround: Copy the content of the livecd from your boot device to an IDE/SATA disk,
Dropping you to a limited shell.
I've done lots of searching and reading and googling, and have really learned alot during this experience so far.
I feel as though I've exhausted all resources except the one where I simply ask for help.
Please help... this is only the start of the biggest linux project I've ever attempted.
