When i boot the hybrid-iso (i have tried using virtualbox and vmware
player, with similar results), it gets to the syslinux boot menu. From
here, i cannot boot the live kernel. If i exit the graphical menu and
type "live", it simply says that the kernel is not found.
i'm building the system using a Ubuntu 11.04 desktop. i've been trying
for a few days now. What could be wrong? i feel i've tried everything
You need to put a hook named (for example) "kernel.binary" into
config/hooks that goes something like this:
mv binary/live/vmlinuz-* binary/live/vmlinuz || true
mv binary/live/initrd.img-* binary/live/initrd.img || true
Make sure it's executable. This assumes you're using live build 3.x.
