Also, change any reference to /isolinux in the config files to /syslinux.
I've written a little Python script for that that is by no means
polished (you have to hard code the target partition in the script and
it uses too many OS calls), but works for me and makes sure that I
don't forget any of the renames/edits. Please feel free to use and/or
expand if you like it.


from subprocess import Popen,PIPE
import os
import shutil
import tempfile

DEV = "/dev/disk/by-label/LIVE"
MNT = tempfile.mkdtemp()

def dircopy(src, dst):
    srclist = os.listdir(src)
    for name in srclist:
        srcfile = os.path.join(src, name)
        dstfile = os.path.join(dst, name)
        print("cp "+srcfile)
        shutil.copy(srcfile, dstfile)

os.system("mount %s %s" % (DEV,MNT))

if not (os.path.isdir(MNT+"/live")):
if not (os.path.isdir(MNT+"/syslinux")):

dircopy("/live/image/live", MNT+"/live")
dircopy("/live/image/isolinux", MNT+"/syslinux")
shutil.move(MNT+"/syslinux/isolinux.cfg", MNT+"/syslinux/syslinux.cfg")

os.system("sed -i -e 's/isolinux/syslinux/' %s/syslinux/*.cfg" % (MNT))

os.system("umount  " + MNT)
os.system("syslinux -d /syslinux/ " + DEV)
