Problem building a live system : where to look for causes ?


  I'm trying to build an Etch live system for net boot with live-helper
(1.0~a19-1) and live-initramfs (1.91.5-1).
 The make-live command doesn't success and I don't get resulting
squashfs filesystem.
  I've set --verbose and --debug options in make-live command, and
found that in lh_binary command, it can't install squashfs-tools, for
name resolution problem :

P: Begin building root filesystem image...
D: Executing: aptitude install --assume-yes  squashfs-tools
Reading package lists...
Building dependency tree...
Reading extended state information...
Initializing package states...

Building tag database...
The following NEW packages will be installed:
0 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 95.3kB of archives. After unpacking 274kB will be used.
Writing extended state information...
Err http://ftp.debian.org etch/main squashfs-tools 1:3.1r2-6.1
  Temporary failure resolving 'ftp.debian.org'
E: Failed to fetch http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/s/squashfs/squashfs-to
ols_3.1r2-6.1_i386.deb: Temporary failure resolving 'ftp.debian.org'
D: Reading configuration file config/common
D: Reading configuration file config/bootstrap

What I don't understand is that it succeed in the chroot construction
installing a bunch of packages, but fails to resolve ftp.debian.org in
the binary building...

As a side note, the lh_binary continues to run even with install
errors, and the make-live command don't report any error nor return a
non-zero value.

  I don't know where to look for the cause of my problem, I've looked
at the lh_binary_rootfs program but with no clues... From the whole
 run picture in /usr/share/doc/live-helper/README, it seems that a
resolv.conf should be installed before lh_binary_rootfs is run, but I
don't know how to verify this...

  Any help would be appreciated !
