I'm trying to get the Lenny Gnome live CD (as of 17-Apr-2008) to work on
a usb stick which has an ext2 partition where the system files are
stored. The usual procedure is to copy the contents of the isolinux dir
to a "extlinux" dir, install extlinux (3.62) in this dir and rename
isolinux.cfg to extlinux.conf.
This has ever worked with any distribution I tried. However, the recent
Debian live images that have just been released don't seem to work
anymore. When booting from the usb stick, I am stuck at the splash logo.
The content of boot.txt is shown but the "boot:" string is missing and
key inputs don't work either.
Is this a known problem so it can be fixed?
