Ok, I added the packet 'live-initramfs_1.95.2-1~bpo.1_all.deb' in
with the same parameters as above.
At boot, the system stops after "Begin: Mounting root file system".
But I get a Busybox shell instead of a Kernel panic.
'cat live.log' gives me the message :
unable to find a medium containing a live file system
and /live/image/ is empty.
Thanks for suggestion.
PS : using live-helper 1.0~a27-1
