I have built a very nice Debian Live CD but with two problems.
One, I can't switch to the static IP addressed used by my lan. I
included a copy of my interfaces file in chroot_local-includes. When I
boot from the CD I can substitute this file in /etc/network but I can't
find a way to shutdown the network and restart it with the substituted
file. I must have failed to include some package as there is no network
entry in the Debian/Applications drop down list.
(Bringing along my special config files does work very nicely in other
cases. Specifically, I have an xorg.conf file which allows me to use a
Wacom tablet. After booting from the cd I substitute a copy of this
file and restart gdm and the Wacom tablet works perfectly.)
My second problem must also be an omitted package as only root has a
The CD is 575 MB. I hope a couple small packages might correct these
problems without taking more than the remaining space.
