||Using and Customizing Knoppix|
I pretty much followed your instructions but hit two
problems (I'm using Knoppix 3.3-2003-11-19):
1) I could not make the race condition go away for /dev/null. I did not understand which partition we should mount with the option nodev. Finally, I decided to boot my own debian and make the customizations on the remastered directory and the problem went away.
2) After all customizations, I decided to create the compressed image. It did build it, however, the boot sequence fails when trying to read the compressed image. I suspect it may be a create_compressed_fs version problem. I tried then to recompile create_compressed_image and the cloop module on my debian. Interestingly I could not mount the image on the 3.3 knoppix disk but I was able to mount compreesed images produced with my own create_compressed_fs. Anyone with similar problems? I think we may need to customize miniroot.gz to contain a cloop.o that matches create_compreesed_fs..
