Re: Problem with /scripts/persisten in persistent mode


I was trying to complete all the information you asked to me.

If I misunderstood something, please tell me to do it right.

Can you paste the link you used?
  when I boot with that version, the boot messages include:
Linux debian 2.6.26-2-amd64 #1 SMP Sun Jun 20 20:16:30 UTC 2010 x86_64

Booted with the live image that you are attempting to do a,    lh
build           command can you paste back the results of the command:

lh -v
I rebooted my desktop and, after reinstalling live-helper, I did the lh -v (then, if any modification was introduced in the repository, the present live-helper tools are not going to be the same than I used a few days ago). Anyway the commands and their outputs, hand copied, because I was working in console only mode, as I told you before:

#apt-get install live-helper
unpacking from live-helper_1.0.3-2_all.deb

#lh -v
lh-version 1.0.3-2
This program is a part of live-helper

Let us get some more details from above to know for sure which version
of tools and OS build version.

Sure and no worries.
