Bumped into this oddity when trying to build the Linux half of my livedvd
project. Testing in both a VM booting the ISO, and burning the ISO to an
actual disc and booting it yields the same results:
Error from /live.log is:
Begin: Running /scripts/live-premount ... done.
Begin: Running /scripts/live-realpremount ... done.

Debian Bug #540000 is one of the few bugs that is both fairly recent, and
directly relates to this. Unfortunately, the original creator of the bug
didn't provide a whole lot of information regarding his setup or such. I've
since sent in my own observations, but I'll have to see if that offers the
Debian maintainer any idea as to what's wrong.
Some things I've checked:
- Tested both Lenny & Sid versions of live-helper, live-initramfs, &
- Checked my squashfs-tools package, and it's 3.3, producing SquashFS 3.1
- Manually attempting to mount the squashfs root fails with a similar error as
above, "invalid argument", but nothing comes up in dmesg, and I don't have
strace available in the minitroot environment to see what's going on behind the
Anyone got something else to try? I've mostly run the amd64 scripts
one-by-one, modifying 10-init-lh_config.sh to pass different mirror parameters
to lh_config, and tried both cdebootstrap and debootstrap, but neither seems to
work. I am putting my guest disk image into the chroot environemtn, so the
resultant filesystem.squashfs is ~1.5GB, but I doubt that's an issue because
the booting system has 8GB of memory to play in.
