I have followed the instructions on doing a remaster,bleechbit, bleechbit root, df, umount -a and mylivecd pclinuxos gnome 2011.iso. All seems to go well and can burn the image. When i run the disc it always stalls at choose keyboard layout. The layout on this laptop is Italian which is highlighted in the window but I am unable to change it and the keyboard and mouse dont respond. I thought it may have something to do with my home folder in some way so i started over but this time ran mylivecd --nodir=^/home/steve steve-pclinux2010.11.iso so as to ignore the home folder settings. The ISO was 806mb as opposed to 2.6GB but the result was the same when i came to run it.
The laptop is an IBM T43 and I have the IBM utilities installed,is this affecting the remaster? Or is it a case of a permissions issue or group membership problems. Am really at a loss on how to cure this after several attempts and hours reading the posts on the forum.
When i update the kernel the keyboard freezes aswell but after a reboot all is well,dont know if that is relevant.
