Squashfs prevents live cd from rebooting properly


#1

I got a nasty problem rebooting the live-CD inside a VMware environment. Every time I tried to shutdown or reboot the live-CD I got squashfs errors.

Here a workaround:

1) vi /build-iso/livecd/templates/isolinux.cfg
2) at the end of the live label put ide=nodma
3) rebuild iso
4) test it

#2

Is it possible to cut & paste the squashfs errrors somehow ?
Would be interesting to know if it specifically for vmware that this happens.

I guess this is only related with live-CD under VMware,
BTW ide=nodma is not helping so much.
