I'll nudge you but only if you update the wrong wiki pages across
which you come.
In a very recent upload (<2 weeks ago?), make-live was deprecated .
Just use lh_config with the same options that were used for make-live,
then lh_build. lh_config creates a ./config/ with the command line
options you specified. You can further tweak the files before running
lh_build, or run lh_build then tweak the files and rerun lh_build
after lh_cleaning the appropriate stages.
AFAIR there is no root password (locked with passwd -l); you're
intended to use sudo instead.
 not depreciated :)
