where the upper and lower parts are the same (e.g. fr_FR) simply fr should still work

ok, seems not (it was meant to, for the lazy).. use fr_FR (or fr_BE or de_DE) then. With or without ".UTF-8".

Live-config defaults to running all scripts (some will exit early for various reasons) if a user does not specify something (e.g. "components=script1,script2" or "nocomponents")

Autologin is the debian-live default and will be set by the relevant DM script (e.g. /lib/live/config/0100-lightdm) If you use lightdm and specify "nocomponents=lightdm" then xinit will do the job (unless you exclude also xinit) I tested this with various combinations but didn't work out what debconf was up to.

Use the proper syntax then everything should work as expected.

BTW the image includes sudoers.d/live (it probably should not) so nopasswd sudo will be enabled for "user" whether or not live-config sets it.

Yeah, fr_FR worked. Looks like there will be a lot of rewriting the boot help screens.

sudoers.d/live gets added by snapshot (9.1.0). There's a variable in the config file to turn it on and off. I thought when I was testing yesterday, I had boots with and without sudo, depending on what was on the boot cmdline, but now I'm not so sure. So I'm also not sure what should be in the boot menu entries in the iso.

I don't have a snapshot that has the newer live-* packages and does not have sudoers.d/live in it. Guess I need to make one of those.

Code: Select all
boot=live union=aufs components=openssh-server

You don't actually need openssh-server but you then must generate the keys manually (ssh-keygen -A).

Add sudo to components (if a root password is preset, optionally) only if sudo is not preset in the image.

Others, e.g. locales/refracta-lang or hooks to suit. You must use either "components=script1,script2" or "nocomponents" else strange things happen.. "config=whatever" is defunct.

I don't use ip=frommedia (a live-boot parameter) and network is OK on multiple machines, I suppose wicd sorts it.
