It basically means nobody adapted it:


If you feel like doing it, go ahead. "Fixing that part in defaults.sh
should be simple. But then again, how does a live image for a lemote
system look like? Will grub work? If so, maybe simply fixing
scripts/build/lb_binary_grub2 will do the trick. Anyway, you'll probably
need to focus on the lb_binary* scripts.

The right place to ask about this is the debian-live list (or IRC
channel, or whatever).


Note that Squeeze has live-build 2.x and development is of live-build
3.x, which has many changes.
