OK I am trying to make my own knoppix CD, I followed the wiki tutorial for how to remaster it to the letter, but first of all when I copy the source from the CD, it gives me all these errors about symbolic links and stuff, I jsut ignore them because Stuff gets copied anyways.

When I go to chroot the knoppix source directory, It gives me an error

"chroot:/bin/bash: No such file or directory"

I have checked and both in my knoppix source directory and my knoppix directory bash exists so I am quite confused.

Any help would be appreciated

I think maybe you left out one of the command-line switches. I've done it too. You should get an error "does not comply with iso9660" or something, then you know it is working right

What do you mean with command line switches?

A command line switch (also known as a flag switch) is an extra modifier to be given to the command you are running.

Example: mount -t vfat /dev/hdb1 /cdrive -o ro
Okay, in the example I used two switches, -t and -o. In this case -t means 'filesystem Type' and it's followed by the filesystem I am mounting. The '-o' stands for option and I am requesting that the filesystem be mounted 'read only'.

try using the man pages to learn more about a given command.
example: man mount (to get the manual pages for mount).

Good luck!

After making the mistake myself, I learned that /bin/bash must exsist in the directory you're chrooting into. It doesn't matter if it exsists in your regular directory. So, check to make sure /bin/bash is present in the directory your chrooting into......

Did you use cp -pR to copy the KNOPPIX source?
