Re: Simple default ISO generation fails

When I was having this issue a couple of weeks back I got around it by
setting the whole thing up in my build environmant as my distribution,
with all includes, etc. I'm trying the same thing right now for a wheezy
build and will report back with the results.
I spent /all day/ yesterday trying unsuccessfully to produce a bootable
Wheezy image of any kind with live build. This morning in desperation I
installed debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso to an external USB hard drive
and booted into Wheezy. I then installed live build a39 from the repos.
I typed "lb config" in a terminal. When it was done, I copied the kernel
rename hook script to config/hooks and did "lb build". Everything went
as expected and a binary-hybrid ISO was produced. I copied that ISO to a
USB thumb drive (/dev/sdd) with:
dd if=binary-hybrid.iso of=/dev/sdd bs=4M;sync
After it was finished, I booted into the USB drive. I got to the
selection screen (which had "live" and "other options") and chose
"live". The boot progressed until it said "Running
/scripts/live-premount ... done". It then started producing:
/init: line 7: /lib/udev/path_id: not found
in an endless stream.
This is an ISO produced in a brand new Wheezy install on an external USB
hard drive with the live build in the repos and everything at default.
To be clear, I have no problem producing any number of Squeeze
variations on USB thumb or hard drives, in KVM virtual machines,
whatever. They all work.
I'm on the verge of giving up on live build. That would be sad because I
really enjoy creating my own distribution and I don't know of any other
reliable tools that will do the job.
