Re: How to make a live CD/DVD from your harddisk installation
I'm a bit of an intermediate Linux user (slightly passed newbie) and I've followed the directions exactly like you have them, however I've noticed 3 things.
1. Upon creating the MD5 hash, I get a permission denied for vmlinuz, but the rest of the files are ok.
2. If I switch over to verbose mode (alt-F2) during boot, I see several Permission Denied messages during startup.
3. Once the live DVD has started, I'm immediately taken to my login screen. Neither my user name, nor password work when trying to log in. I even went as far as making a user named ubuntu with a security of 999. Still no joy. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as at this point, I'd love to have a Live DVD of my current system (11.04) that is installable, however if I can't get past the login screen, seems a bit of a moot point.
Just a shot in the dark, but I'm guessing that the MD5 Permission Denied error has something to do with this. Many thanks in advance.
