Building a custom GoboLinux LiveCD

- The CloopUtils package, available at: http://gobolinux.org/packages/binary/current/CloopUtils--2.00--i686.tar.bz2
- Is this package appropriate for other Linux distibutions?
- I see no particular "home page" for this, although I found:
- "A convenience directory. It "mountExtracted" [sic] bind it with /Mount/CD-ROM inside Mounted, i.e., on the chrooted environment, you can access it via /Mount/CD-ROM, using it as a contact to the "external world" to easilly copy files in and out."
- This paragraph doesn't make sense to me. It needs to be reworded. -- Sy
This can't be right:
-rw-r--r-- 1 gobo gobo 4685824 2004-08-02 15:41 GoboLinux-~NoVersion.iso
I'm missing something, aren't i? :

I played around a bit too much, and when the CD was unmounted, ejected, reinserted and a
mount /Mount/CD-ROM is attempted, it reports
mount: /System/Kernel/Devices/ide/host0/bus1/target0/lun0/cd already mounted or /Mount/CD-ROM busy
Also, sound mysteriously died. This was solved by rebooting the system. -- Sy

Is the "No space left on device" message normal?
On the mailing list, Andr�Detsch reported:
Btw, we are moving to squashfs (instead of cloop). I have already updated the generation scripts, and will update the how-to as soon as a first alpha for 012 becomes released.
