1 KDE 3.5 on Debian Squeeze on Mon Aug 02, 2010 7:15 pm

I followed the instructions on this site http://techpatterns.com/forums/about1450.html I only had to do a few small changes. I installed Squeeze using a net install CD choosing only standard and laptop no desktop or anything else. I then followed that site but I had to download Lenny versions of libdbus-qt-1-1c2 and libxxf86misc1 then everything installed fine. The site said you can use snapshot.debian.net to install the programs but that didn't work for me. A little bit of extra work but if you need updated packages and a newer kernel could be worth it to you. I tried packing the whole thing up with remastersys but I just couldn't get a bootable system that would allow me to login.

Thanks, That is exactly what I was looking for. I will try it with desktop not laptop and report back.

I should read the whole post. I have remastersys working for lenny, but I have not got the squeeze version to work fully. I can obtain a live install but not install to hard disc. With the original remastersys version for debian, it was stated that you had to have the squashfs and aufs modules for the kernal. These exist for lenny's kernal but not for squeeze's, so I assumed that this requirement no longer applied, as there is a remastersys/squeeze, so I assume it is the installer that is failing. There is a warning supplied with the installer.

I just got finished with the final isos, and will be uploading them. When I'm finished with that, I will take a look and figure what needs to be done.

I can get it to boot but no matter what I set the user to I can't login. I wonder if there is something I have to do before creating the ISO.

OK I had to goof around with it a bit but I found out how to make a good cd out of Squeeze with remastersys. Go to http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages#search_packages download passwd and live-initramfs from Lenny use dpkg to overwrite the squeeze versions. Now create a preferences file in /etc/apt and pin those two packages I used a priority of 1001 so I knew they wouldn't get overwritten. Then set things up the way you want and install remastersys. Now any users you create will work and autologin.
You will want to add your user to the adm group as well as grant them access to sudo with the /etc/sudoers file as the Trinity packages are designed to look for sudo not su and can cause issues if you don't use this setup. You can always set xhost + in a terminal and manually launch any apps as root but that seems cludgy if you don't have to.
The nice thing is once you install the CD on another system you can unpin those two packages as they won't be needed anymore unless you plan to remaster again.
Hopefully this will be useful to others.

Found these instructions online there are now Debian versions of the packages, I have tested this on Debian Squeeze with no issues it works really well. I did not use the pinning myself.

I am not sure why you would use these with Lenny as it is 3.5 based already although I suppose if these fixed a known bug or you just wanted to try things out.

This is going OK I have a few issues I am working out. On boot it won't login to Xwindows but does login to the console. The account has full sudo privileges so you do a console login and sudo su and set the password then you can login to X. The only other issue right now is the installer works but does not setup grub for you. After the install you have to do it manually, Mount your new root (/) partition on /mnt (in my case it is sda2) mount /dev/sda2 /mnt then change root to /mnt chroot /mnt then grub-install /dev/sda and reboot. I think most of these things will be fixed when Squeeze is official as Frag doesn't want to chase a moving platform right now.
