Live CD development

A Debian Jr. livecd can be built using live-helper with the following steps:

svn co svn://
( cd live-helper ; debuild -us -uc )
sudo dpkg -i live-helper*.deb
svn co svn://
sudo make-live --root junior &>make-live.log

Currently the junior config in svn is for a usb key using gnome. You can change this by editing the appropriate variables in junior/config. Other possible values for LIVE_PACKAGES_LIST are "kde-junior" or "xfce-junior", and LIVE_BINARY_IMAGE can be changed to "iso" to generate a CD image.

For more help with configuration, see ["DebianLive/Configuration"] or join #debian-live on
