|The pendrive-usbhdd.sh script in /usr/sbin is broken. It works up until the last step, when it tries to copy the kernel and the initial ramdisk. It tries to copy /cdrom/boot/isolinux/linux24 and /cdrom/boot/isolinux/minirt24.gz but the directory /cdrom/boot does not exist. In fact, I don't know where the kernel is when I try to copy it manually.|
The new release of DSL looks excellent. If not for shaky WPA support in the backported ipw2200 driver, I would be using it on my production machine.
EDIT: I believe I discovered the problem. /dev/shm is mounted on /cdrom, not /dev/cdrom1, so it only sees the KNOPPIX filesystem on /cdrom. Manually mount /dev/cdrom1 on /cdrom2 and copying the kernels is a temporary fix.
I added the code to prevent this situation as was/is in v3.4.x..
It is always better when trying to do installations not to use 'toram'.
Leave the ram availble for quicker copying.
Thanks for reporting.
