problem with aufs


I try to make a CD with live-helper from Debian etch, with
linux-image-2.6.26-1-486, aufs-modules-2.6.26-1-486 (unionfs not
available for this kernel), and squashfs-modules-2.6.26-1.486 from
lenny (while this kernel is running). In config/chroot
LH_LINUX_PACKAGES="linux-image-2.6.26-1 aufs-modules-2.6.26-1
squashfs-modules-2.6.26-1" are set, the three deb-packages are in

Booting from the resulting CD gets dropped into a shell within
INITRAMFS after a (seemingly normal) message from squashfs. The
message concerning a union-fs (like seen just before the squashfs
message in successful boots with a respective disk with an earlier
kernel and unionfs) is lacking.

Within the initramfs, lib/modules/2.6.26-1-486/extra/ contains only a
directory squashfs/, not aufs/, although the latter directory
(containing aufs.ko) had been present in the live-helper directory
chroot/lib/modules/2.6.26-1-486/extra/ .

Etch has no packages aufs-tools and aufs-utils. Should this be the

For the case making a lenny CD should be a possible solution: I tried
this and got an error message "Unknown flavor lenny" (probably from
cdebootstrap). Is it necessary to upgrade cdebootstrap to the lenny
version before making a lenny CD?
