http://askubuntu.com – I am trying to use live-build to create a remix of ubuntu 12.04. My goal is a bootable liveusb that can install the base ubuntu system plus my custom packages. I am using live-build with the following config options: lb config --mode ubuntu --distribution precise --hostname myubuntu --username myuser --archive-areas "main contrib" --cache-packages true --binary-images iso-hybrid --architecture amd64 --debian-installer live For some reason it fails with the following error: Building dependency tree... Done E: Unable to locate package ubuntu-desktop-generic E: Unable to locate package consol (HowTos)
