zerozero@deb-kde ~/Documents $ apt show live-initramfs
Package: live-initramfs
New: yes
State: not installed
Version: 1.236.2-1
Priority: optional
Section: misc
Maintainer: Debian Live Project <debian-live@lists.debian.org>
Architecture: all
Uncompressed Size: 512 k
Depends: busybox, file, initramfs-tools, sudo, udev, user-setup
Recommends: cryptsetup, eject, rsync, uuid-runtime, wget
Suggests: loop-aes-utils, curlftpfs, genext2fs (>= 1.4.1), httpfs2,

Description: Debian Live initramfs hook
live-initramfs is a hook for the initramfs-tools, used to generate a initramfs
capable to boot live systems, such as those created by live-helper. This
includes the Debian Live isos, netboot tarballs, and usb stick images.

At boot time it will look for a (read-only) media containing a "/live"
directory where a root filesystems (often a compressed filesystem image like
squashfs) is stored. If found, it will create a writable environment, using
aufs or unionfs, for Debian like systems to boot from.

You probably do not want to install this package onto a non-live system,
although it will do no harm.


live-initramfs is a fork of casper <http://packages.ubuntu.com/casper/>.

i thought i did need it for remastersys. Remember remastersys? Spins your own distros of your configured system?

turns out i needed the debian wheezy .debs version from the forum instead.

i was trying to install from the squeeze repo....
