sounds like squashfs version mismatch. are you sure you're using the
right kernel images in your configuration? can you dump the whole
content of your usb stick (dd if=/dev/sd? of=image.img) and put it
online somewhere for inspection?
Bug 540000 appears to describe a similar event but this was closed
no, that's something different. there, the user did build an image
himself with a wrong options in the live-helper config tree. the symptom
however is the same, squashfs version mismatch.
There is also a similar discussion at
but this too did not seem to have been resolved. Both earlier reports
are much older.
no, that's something different as well. there, it's union fs mismatch
(unionfs vs. aufs).
