I have tried to build using livecd-0.9.1.tgz, but it gives the error
while booting the CD:
starting unionfs support
insmod: cannot insert module '/tmp/unionfs.ko': invalid module format:
(-1): Exec format error
error inserting module unionfs (1)
I have followed README instructions, including compile unionfs againts
current kernel (kernel-2.6.9-42.livecd.c4) and able to modprobe unionfs
The instructions seems different from the original linux-live script README:
1. it compile squashfs int kernel, while LL-script expect to find
squashfs.ko (however from the boot msg, it seems able to load squashfs,
2. it ask for different kernel version (ie `uname -r`_i686)
3. modify the existing linux isntallation (or do i ned to chroot before
running build-livecd.sh -sl ?)
