Re: [debian-knoppix] Booting remaster candidate.
much better idea is to use qemu to run it while working...
even without packaging the iso.
But it needs some changes in initrd...
or special version of initrd just for booting it.
i dont have time to do it now, but you may try >:]
readonly hdax partition should be used instead of
CLOOP image mounted in /cdrom
kernel and initrd options should be passwd to qemu
to run the remaster in a window.
preferably using switch like toram or something like this.
Imho this should be integrated into knoppix to make life
of remasterers easier.
you can use qemu to run .iso, too.
just qemu -m 128 -cdrom folder/knopppix.iso
will run it.
PS: use at least qemu 5.4 or 5.5
