I can create a custom CD with simple-cdd wich install by default severals packages (I want apache and mysql for example), but I have a problem when I want to add custom deb files (first one is nammed siglcode). I put them in a directory, I add the parameter --local-packages localpackages/ (I put the first error, sorry it's in french but I translate at the end of the line)

checking for missing dependencies with edos-debcheck:  /home/cedric/www/EC/SIGL_OS/simplecdd/tmp//mirror/dists/squeeze/main/binary-i386/Packages /home/cedric/www/EC/SIGL_OS/simplecdd/tmp//mirror/dists/squeeze/contrib/binary-i386/Packages /home/cedric/www/EC/SIGL_OS/simplecdd/tmp//mirror/dists/squeeze/non-free/binary-i386/Packages

Here is the file MergeList have a problem with on the last line

I do not undestand where is the problem.

Best regards

I was building deb files on an Ubuntu 11.04 box, and installing them on a Debian Squeeze : so stupid. Built on a Squeeze now, and no more problem.
