Description Paul Done 2003-06-03 07:18:17 UTC
See for background info.

The livecd-ng script references versions of BusyBox and Cloop which aren't 
available and the versions are hard-coded in the script. These variables need 
to be factored out into the gentoo-basic or custom profile somehow. BusyBox is 
incorrectly referenced as a bz2 archive when it should be a tar.gz. Also, the 
default emerge livecd-ng should included a dependency on Busbox, Syslinux and 
Cloop to ensure that theses are installed in the /etc/livecd-ng/archives 
directory automatically when livecd-ng is emerged.

The cloop specific issue is addressed in the seperate existing bug, number: 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run emerge livecd-ng
2. set gentoo-basic profile settings
3. run livcd-ng gentoo-basic fetch build initrd clean cloop isogen umount
4. view script warning/error messages which appear for Busybox/Syslinux
Actual Results:  
The livcd-ng script failed with errors relating to missing/incorrect BusyBox, 
Cloop and Syslinux references.

Expected Results:  
Generated the ISO image with no errors.

Machine: Dell Latitude C640 Laptop - fairly standard and upto-date Gentoo 
based system with KDE.
