For a long time I had wanted to try building a Debian Live(equivalent to Knoppix) due to some of the advantages listed on Debian's site

So I played with it and since the manual is huge, I created a small concise how-to video to describe the process of building debian live .Literally it takes just 3 commands to build it.

Here are the commands I used on my knoppix 7.0.4 dvd to build a live Debian wheezy DVD.

#apt-get install live-build
#mkdir tutorial1 ; cd tutorial1 ; lb config
#lb build 2>&1 | tee build.log
The how-to video is available in CC-BY-SA license and hosted on cannot embed the video on these forums as we do not support it otherwise I would have embedded it here.
