Hi All.

I am quite new to the remastering the GRML live CD. I am trying to
remaster the CD based on the grml-small linux 2.6.20 kernel following
the procedure described in the "Remastering GRML" HOWTO
http://wiki.grml.org/doku.php?id=remastering. Everything went Ok until I
have tried to boot from the resulting ISO - it thrown me to the busybox.

I have noticed that executing mksqushfs results in the GRML file which
is about 0.5 MB smaller than the original GRML file, even though there
were absolutely no changes to the original. If I do not run mksquashfs,
bit simply recreate ISO using mkisofs, the resulting ISO image works
fine. I looks that the problem is somewhere in mksquashfs. I use
mksquashfs distributed with squashfs3.3.tgz via

Could anyone help?
