vinstall-iso - gunzip doesn't like initrd.img
« on: May 21, 2008, 03:18:41 am »

Hi there,

I'm trying out the iso install but I get stuck on the gunzip action on the initrd.img.  It seems that the gunzip I'm using (part of Damn Small Linux busybox v1.2.2) is not up for the job.  For one thing, it doesn't like the -S.img argument that gunzip uses in the script.

Suggestions would be most welcome !

you could try renaming the initrd in the script "mv initrd.img initrd.gz" and get rid of the -S .img
