hi every one
um...in bid to make a live ( backup ) cd of a running Arch Linux installation , i have tried larch 7 and archiso-live
hm..while using archiso-live , i have used the livebackup profile to create an live image of the system..
However , after booting the live system to the desktop ...
i realized something was wrong
when i opened a terminal ( lxterminal or xfce terminal )
instead of getting the usual
23:32 fplolz ~ $
i dont get any verbose out put at all
i get a blank terminal
when running gparted ( from the icon shortcut issuing the command sudo gparted )
i get an error
Failed to run /usr/sbin/gparted as user root
Failed to for new process: No such file or directory
on the start up of livecd ,
i get the following errors
*Adding new real_root branch: /tmp/base.lzn
mkmod: /real_root/dev/console: File exists
mkmod: /real_root/dev/null: File exists
mkmod: /real_root/dev/zero: File exists
Edit: though , i could log in as root from lxdm .. i cant access the terminal from root in lxdm..
same for a non-root usesr
i wonder if the problems are related..
um..does anyone know how to fix this?
Any help would be much appreciated
thanks in advance

I still can't get it to work
is the command "source exports"
maybe the culprit Godane?
After alot of messing around I think the errors are related to /dev/pts
If anyone has ever had this issue please comment?
I have not support the livebackup profile in a long time. I'm doing a rewrite of called archiso2 which may get my scripts into the offical archiso project.
So the livebackup profile is not supported anymore. I'm sorry.
The new scripts are below:
PS the 'source exports' is need since everything is the archiso-live git repo.
I'm working on a live cds based on Archlinux. http://godane.wordpress.com/
so, will the new archiso2 scripts build a livebackup?
I really liked the livebackup except for the non-usable terminal thing
but other than that it was very cool:cool:
and so I also make alot of livecd stuff including a livecd for ARCH

and I'm diggin the zen kernel right, but I have made a "kit" for Slackware and have one for ARCH (x86 and x86_64) I am making now
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions … ost4019567
and have made a prelim x86_64 ARCH live version too
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions … ost4017796
the point of my questions being-
How would I integrate your live-live and such to my stuff?
yours uses squashfs 4.0 or higher?
you see, my "kit" will have everything needed to just run the script and wala
as yours does
I also dont have a real hdd installer
but I wanna use the archiso-installer
and was gonna try it out in qemu so we'll see.
Thanks Godane and keep it up!
