I'm running Alpine 2.5 and having a problem making a custom iso.  I go
through the instructions here:

http://wiki.alpinelinux.org/wiki/How_to_make_a_custom_ISO_image

And things go well until, during the make phase, it gets to installing
syslinux.  I then get:

Downloading syslinux-4.06-r0
tar: usr/share/syslinux/ldlinux.c32: not found in archive

At which point the build dies.

I've gotten this error trying to build the default alpine-rescue.

Any pointers?

Thanks!

Brian

Thanks for the response - I'll give it a try this morning.  I assume
another option would be to try edge - but I'd like to get an iso working w/
the stable release first.

I'll let you know how it goes!

Not 100% sure, but it looks like alpine-iso is not backwards
compatible since it has been set to use syslinux-5 (which is not in
alpine 2.5).
You could try to checkout an older version of alpine-iso (before the
"support for syslinux-5" commit) which should probably still work.
You can do that by going into alpine-iso dir and: git checkout
4fc8419f46c543ae18bda240350d17f83f5bc936
If that still doesn't work, you could try to checkout some older
commit and see if that works.

Yes, we should probably branch it in git.

You can also use http://nl.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v2.6 which is compatible.
There is no release yet (waiting for grsecurity patch), but you can
build an iso from it if you want.
