I asked for you to attach your config for a reason. I thought perhaps I
might see some detail that might be lost by your mail program mucking
with the formatting. In any case, you do not need to set any --parent-*
options unless you're making a derivative (which you are not). Nor do
you need to set the installer distribution. Setting additional options
like this when you're trying to debug only muddies up the
troubleshooting process. You want to *simplify*, not make things more
complex. That's why my test was with the simplest possible config first.

statements, otherwise it's quite confusing.

See elsewhere in the debian-live list archives for this month about the
sid kernel metapackage being out of sync with the actual kernel and what
to do about it.

Please also heed my earlier advice: "if all you wanted was live-* from

those issues. Please try building wheezy + live-* from sid as per the
