I am putting a 'live' Linux system on CD-ROM. My intention is to enable our
company's field people (sales, installation & training) to run Linux and our
Linux-based application on their laptops, without disturbing Win95 or
whatever is already on their systems.
I have it mostly working. I am running into lots of little problems that
are related to the root filesystem being read-only.
Obviously you can't have syslogd writing to /var/log/messages, or modify a
Not so obvious: something happens to /dev/null that the 'w'rite attributes
are removed, so things like "command > /dev/null" fail.
I can figure out ways around each of these problems (so far)... but it seems
like I am re-inventing the wheel. I imagine others have done this before,
probably more elegantly. Can anyone point me to some documentation?
