8 July

  1. After breaking my head on Fedora, I decided to try something else, so I am trying debian now.
    1. Here are the more details about itBKODebian.

9 - 10 July

  1. Got the Debian working :-) BKODebian
    1. Just one small issue is that, I have to use squashfs image instead of iso image.
    2. The problem in using iso image is that, once initrd job is (almost) over, it runs /bin/run-init which is binary executable,
      1. It tries to remove initramfs filesystem.
      2. As I am mounting ISO inside initramfs, it also tries to delete this iso, and fails. with this failue the init scripts panics and stop the boot process.

11 - 12 July

  1. Could not work much because of Internet connectivity problem.
  2. Also missed the weekly meeting
