I used the df command and I got the following results
9.7 GB used and 46 GB available
It was 8.9 GB used before I attempted to mylivecd and now even after bleachbit, bleachbit root, and cleaning /tmp I still get 9.7 GB used.
It only makes it ~20% through the compression when the computer power turns off. I read all the way through the suggest thread and didn't see anything that applied to my problem. I am not excluding anything, and I started with the full monty iso then removing a couple of gigs of programs. I assume full monty was built using this script, but that might not be the case. I see no error message it just shuts down. Any ideas?
