    Cant find KNOPPIX filesystem

    Ive just remastered MiniKnoppix for the 3rd time, only to get the same error everytime I do it:

    Code:
    Welcome to KNOPPIX live Linux-on-CD!
    
    
     Accessing KNOPPIX CDROM at /dev/scd0.../modules/cloop.o: init_module:
    Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including IO and IRQ parameters
    Can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry.
    Dropping you to a (very limited) shell.
    Press reset button to quit.
    Im remastering from a working MiniKnoppix version, i unpack the filesystem then switch to knoppix 3.3 to chroot and make the iso. I dont seem to get any errors and the iso seems to be the correct size.

    Im following the commands *exactly*, and I even tried the feather linux tutorial:

    http://featherlinux.berlios.de/remastering.html

    and im gettin the same error everytime.

    There was a similiar post a month ago (http://knoppix.net/forum/viewtopic.p...f1c050241a8bae), but none of the suggestions worked.

    What am i doing wrong?

    Same problem here.

    The Remastering HOWTO has some obvious mistakes and is less than clear on remastering 3.4, can someone please give a complete list of instructions.

    On a related matter, where is the source for create_compressed_fs? I need to run it on a RedHat 7.3 machine and the version of glibc is different.

    This error occurs when you use a different cloop version to remaster.

    It's best to remaster from the same OS you are trying to remaster to avoid this issue. I discovered this when trying to remaster Knoppix 3.4 when booted from Knoppix 3.2.

    Ah, that'll be it, I used an old version of create_compressed_fs. I'm re-mastering on a RedHat 7.3 box, where can I find the source?

    Right, I've rebuilt a static version of create_compressed_fs and used that to remaster and still the same problem.

    This is very frustrating, I had no problems with 3.3. I want to use 3.4 as it has alot of nice features but unless I can crack this I'll have to dump it.

    Miniknoppix is based on 3.3, im using 3.3 to do the remaster.

    I have a debian install on the computer im remastering with, can I apt-get some cloop utils and use that? I can copy /usr/bin/create_compressed_fs from 3.3 too. What version of cloop should I get?

    cloop-2.01

    cloop-2.01 is needed for kernel 2.6.x up
    get it from alex's "morphix" or nakada's "berry linux" or klaus's linuxtag_developer
    the module cloop.ko is tightly associated with kernel_version which "compiles" it

    Of course it is, but I'm not replacing the kernel or the module. Is create_compressed_fs or what it creates dependant on the kernel too?

    Yes, the cloop module is specific to the kernel, and create_compressed_fs will use whatever version of cloop your kernel is using.
