Tried the remaster procedure and ran into a few problems.
Forgive the stupid question, but when installing new packages for a remaster, where are they being installed to? Do I understand correctly that they're being installed into the ramdisk and are later in the process copied (with everything else) to the hard drive for imaging? If this is correct, I've a few questions:
- As there's no "enhanced" install when booting DSL from CD, is there no way to create a master with the full command set as opposed to BusyBox?
- On a 256MB system there's not enough room in the ramdisk to install OpenOffice - can this be installed to the hard drive and still be included in the image?
- Is there a way to do a complete (enhanced) DSL install to a hard drive, then boot from CD and image the hard drive install to another partition?
