live-initramfs is a fork from Casper by Canonical. The project is used to build an initramfs suited to boot live systems.

live-initramfs is a hook for the initramfs-tools, used to generate a initramfs capable to boot live systems, such as those created by live-helper(7). This includes the Debian Live isos, netboot tarballs, and usb stick images.

At boot time it wive isos, netboot tarballs, and usb stick images.

At boot time it will loofilesystems (often a compressed filesystem image like squashfs) is stored. If found, it will create a writable environ‐ ment, using unionfs, for Debian like systems to boot from.

To modify the code you can follow the below process:

Checkout or install live-initramfs

svn co svn://svn.debian.org/debian-live/dists/trunk/live-initramfs/

Then build to match your target platform (i.e. if target is lenny then build with lenny) with debuilder inside the live-initramfs (debuilder is part of devscripts package):

debuild -us -uc -b

Then copy the .deb generated to config/chroot_local-packages.
