Broken iso live images on debian sid


Even with the simplest configuration (or the following config: git clone git://live-systems.org/git/debian-lxde-desktop.git) live-buil creates on debian sid *broken* iso images which are not able to boot (after displaying the boot menu futher booting ends on initramfs prompt). I have executed some tests like described in the attached file (sid-lb-config.txt).

For some reason the versions of live builder packages packages on the created image are older than these ones on the build host (details in the attached sid-lb-config.txt file).

Do you have any idea, how to trace this issue? it is useless to check the BTS of debian refer to this issue, yet.

I am not sure if it is a bug in new sid packages, the new version of live builder3.x, my missunderstanding of the live manual or something else.

I hope that this message will save people some frustration with building of live images on debian sid ;)

Thank you in advance for any hints.

regards, Mark

The system starts to boot displaying the boot menu like (even I specified in one more complex config "--distribution sid"):
# boot menu:
