Default livecd

Hi,

I'm trying to build a new livecd with catalyst but it seems like no matter
what I do, when the cd boots, it fails miserably mounting the cd. Booting
with the debug option gives me a shell and I can manually mount the cd just
fine.

There must be some problem with the init script but I can't seem to figure out
what?

This is a problem with genkernel-3.4.9. It's already fixed in SVN, and we'll be
releasing 3.4.10_pre1 soon. In the mean time, you can apply the patch 208477 or
use genkernel-3.4.9_pre6.


Also, you'll likely run into a problem with mounting the squashfs loopback. You
need to make sure you're using <squashfs-tools-3.3 or using >=gentoo-sources-2.6.24.

I was just about to answer the questiong myself. I'll just copy'n'paste what I
was about to mail.


Part of the errors are due to genkernel being broken:
http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=207159

The other part is sqashfs. Apparently something is wrong with the generated
squashfs image. I'm getting "Invalid argument" error when trying to mount it
on the livecd and the following errors when I try to mount it on the build
system, where catalyst is run:

squashfs: version 3.2-r2 (2007/01/15) Phillip Lougher
SQUASHFS error: Major/Minor mismatch, trying to mount newer 3.1 filesystem
SQUASHFS error: Please update your kernel

Both kernels are 2.6.23-gentoo-r6 and I'm not going anywhere near 2.6.24. I'm
using sys-fs/squashfs-tools-3.3 btw.

Nothing is "wrong" with squashfs. It's just that squashfs-tools-3.3 generate the
squashfs in a different format than 3.2, and gentoo-sources-2.6.24 is the first
kernel that's patched with support for the new 3.3 format.
