"The application which allows you to create distributions from scratch."
Due to an oversight I neglected to update the root_fs_helper even though I
had done this on my own system. This caused the program to lock-up. This
has been fixed.
The uml kernel included with gbootroot is now much better at initrd
testing. Before it was limited to the ext2 filesystem, because cramfs
corrupted the filesystem detection phase. In this kernel the order has
been changed so that cramfs is the last filesystem to be detected by the
kernel so initrds made with other types of filesystems like minix will not
fail. However, if your filesystem fails with "bad magic" then you know
that is most likely the case. :)
Finally, I do recommend that you run this program as a normal user even
though it is not a requirement. In case you are wondering I almost always
run gbootroot not as root.
