I am trying to use livecd-ng to make a livecd with my ide controller in the kernel, so I followed what directions I could find. I am not trying to do initrd and I get
Code:
livecd-ng gentoo-basic initrd
Using current working directory as LIVECD_ROOT.
cp: cannot stat `./archives/gcloop_0.66-1.tar.gz': No such file or directory
cp: cannot stat `./archives/busybox-0.60.5.tar.bz2': No such file or directory
/usr/sbin/livecd-ng: aborting.

I can fetch busybox, but emerge gcloop yields nothing. gcloop didn't seem to be downloaded and google yelds nothing significant. I was hoping someone would know how to solve this and help me out.

Also the documentation for livecd-ng is sparse and if anyone has anymore info on it it would be appreciated. If I learn enough I might take a crack at a how-to for it.

I'm also having trouble with gcloop. I think it's mislabelled, because the script that mounts livecd.cloop in initrd refers to cloop, not gcloop.

I found cloop at http://cvs.lnx-bbc.org/cvs/gar/kernel/cloop/ and http://www.knopper.net/download/knoppix/ but couldn't get it to work with gentoo-sources-2.4.19-r10

There is another problem though: After compiling the cloop module, while doing '/usr/sbin/livecd-ng gentoo-basic initrd', I get the following:
Code:

>>> Executing tar xjf busybox-0.60.5.tar.bz2...
>>> Executing make clean...
>>> Executing make DOSTATIC=true...
3000+0 records in
3000+0 records out
mke2fs 1.32 (09-Nov-2002)
cp: cannot stat `/tmp/gentoo-basic/tmp/cloop-0.66/cloop_ucl.o': No such file or directory
chroot_generate: error: can't find ucl cloop module

Thanks for the link to the Knoppix cloop version. I've got the LiveCD generation working - this thread includes the fix for the cloop_ucl issue....
