No problem. There is one other step before using the script, which is creation of the auto directory, so your build is maintainable when live-build changes. That is the place where you select the base release (testing, sid...) and the architecture. See the manual for that, it's easy. The script I posted has been used with success to build a testing image, using the live-build package that's in testing. With sid or stable, results might be different.

Michael, that is extremely useful for me. Thanks a lot!
I will learn how to use live-build.

Thanks again.
