Beta2 doesn't boot

Description

The beta 2 iso doesn't boot. Unable to find kernel:linux

We might want to use the remastersys method since that seems to result in bootable media and would ensure we have a vm image to publish that's identical. See http://n2.nabble.com/Building-the-Live-DVD-from-the-GISVM-tp3683042p3683042.html

Replying to wildintellect:

The beta 2 iso doesn't boot. Unable to find kernel:linux

can you edit the boot options? and change the kernel to "vmlinuz"?

what files available in /, /boot/, and /boot/grub/menu.conf ?

is it using grub at all or some isolinux magic?

We might want to use the remastersys method

if you are familiar with it and have it working then it's got my support.

Beta3 using remastersys doesn't seem to have this issue. Remastersys is now 1st option in build_iso.sh
