Hi Joey,

I've also found this bug in squeeze this week, while building a
squeeze live image with live-installer. The live-boot package (and the
others that depends on it) is/are not removed after disk install.

I've been using a patched version 34 live-installer in wheezy. It's
patched with fix for this bug and also with workaround for bug 655198
in wheezy.

I've built a squeeze live image with this patched udeb and,
apparently, all works ok in squeeze with live-installer 34+patch; live
packages are removed after the install. The patched live image can be
downloaded from http://www.adrive.com/public/gDgZaK.html and the
patched udeb(s) from github
and https://github.com/rbern/bravance/blob/master/live-installer_35~2.gbpe79f3c~debian6460%2B1_amd64.udeb).
The patched udeb should be copied into config/packages/ directory in
live-build config tree and "--debian-installer live" option included
in "lb config" to build with it.

Because squeeze live-installer also has this bug and building squeeze
with version 34 works ok, I would suggest to release a new 35 version
of live-installer and included it in next 6.0.x release. If that can't
happen, then  a fix release with a fresh
live-installer.d/remove-package file with the actual
finish-install.d/60remove-live-packages file (the file was renamed and
changed directory between version 30 and 34) could be done. Diffs:

Should I send a patch with this solution in version 30?

I don't know if this can be done, but a fix should be released because
leaving live-* packages in installed systems is not the supposed to
