New submission from Tong Sun <suntong001 at gmail.com>:

1st, logging the conversation from grml-devel mlist into bts.



I have the following in my /etc/grml/grml-live.local

$ grep -1 OUTPUT /etc/grml/grml-live.local
# Skip download of pageant, plink, pscp, psftp, putty and puttygen
# using wget to store it inside $BUILD_OUTPUT/windows/?
# Main output directory
OUTPUT="/dev/shm/gl" # mount -o remount,suid,dev,rw /dev/shm

# Where do want to find the chroot of the buildprocess files?
# CHROOT_OUTPUT="$OUTPUT/grml_chroot"
# Where do you want to find the compressed chroot, bootstuff,...?
# Where do you want to find the final ISO?

and I invoked grml-live as

% rm /dev/shm/gl/grml_isos/depen64.iso
% grml-live -a $ARCH -c $CLASSES -g $USE_NAME

However, the iso is still generated at /dev/shm/gl/grml_isos/depen64.iso.

% grml-live -a $ARCH -c $CLASSES -g $USE_NAME

grml-live [0.9.43]: check your configuration (or use -F to force execution):

  Local config:      /etc/grml/grml-live.local
  main directory:    /dev/shm/gl
  Chroot target:     /dev/shm/gl/grml_chroot
  Build target:      /dev/shm/gl/grml_cd
  ISO target:        /dev/shm/gl/grml_isos
  Grml name:         depen64
  Release name:      depen rocks
  Build date:        2010-07-23
  Grml version:      0.0.1
  Debian suite:      sid
  Architecture:      amd64
  Boot method:       grub
  Template files:    /usr/share/grml-live/templates
  Logging to file:   /var/log/grml-live.log

Is this ok for you? [y/N] ^C

2nd, I found that the DISTRI_INFO variable might have no effect as well (fine
with me if you can't duplicate the problem).
