PPl i have been trying to create a lmde livecd with many applications preinstalled( like smplayer,qemu etc) getting it to boot...
THIS IS WHAT I DID
i created an empty directory and copied all contents of my / (except media and proc) to that directory. and then using mksquashfs i created filesystem.squashfs
then using unetbootin i created a live usb using original lmde iso and then replaced the original864MB filesystem.squashfs with that of my own(2GB in size)..
i was able to successfully boot into the new "lmde" however my user accnt wasn't there instead just that live account with automatic login many applications like Deluge, Vuze, Qemu worked though ... ALL I WANT TO DO I SOMEHOW COMPRESS MY / into filesystem.squashfs and boot into it much like i do through my HDD with my user accnt and all my customization. ..IT WUD BE LIKE CARRYING MY OS (aka PC) on a USB STICK!! HELP!!
