Refering back to my op, the physical machine is running Debian Squeeze AMD64 >
virtual box3.0> Debian Lenny 32 which is what I am trying to build on.
Perhaps an explanation of what I am trying to build is in order.
Due to recient advances in crimeware's abilities I am no longer sure I trust
local machines for sensitive finical transatcions. By building a custom live
cd that contains only a minimum amount of software and hardened is the best I
can do for assurance that the system is safe. When these sensitive
transactions need to take place one only needs to boot to the live cd. And
yes I know about hardware viruses but the hardware the live cd will run on is
to old to be infected by them.
One thing I didn't mention before is that I installed the gui utility befor my
second attempt and before the purge. It built an image but it was unbootable.
It was at that point that I purged everything and tried to start over. I
think I will delete the virtual host and reinstall it and really start form
scratch. That is unless someone has abetter idea.
if it ain't broke tweak it
