Description

There is a parameter in the Squeeze version of Debian LiveHelper that is used to tell what kind of Live image is to be built. As it is possible to specify isohybrid while invoking the command lb_config to start a new Live project, there is obviously a configuration file in live/…/config-base/ which should be modified to use the option isohybrid.

So we have to 2 the following simple tasks:

  1. change the option to isohybrid
  2. build a new CD image, may it be larger than 700 MB
  3. test the image in qemu and eventually on real media

The parameter to be changed seems to be LB_BINARY_IMAGES on line 9 of file config-base/binary.

We need to check that this will not increase the ISO image size too much. If this would happen, it would be better to keep a different image file for CD's and USB keys.

LB_PACKAGES_LISTS can have values stripped or minimal
LB_BINARY_IMAGES can have the value iso or iso-hybrid

Can you report the difference in image size between LB_BINARY_IMAGES=iso and LB_BINARY_IMAGES=iso-hybrid? If an iso-hybrid image is more than several MB larger than a standard ISO, we can forget it immediately :(.

Have you ever tested the parameter LB_PACKAGES_LISTS with value stripped? I think I made trials months ago and obtained a CD that was not functioning!

Finally iso-hybrid is not mandatory while building the CD image, it is a 3rd option that is specified instead of usbimg, see r1709. For example:

./build-img.sh iso-hybrid en
