[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: live-initramfs
Version: 1.157.2-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch

The function copy_live_to in scripts/live doesn't take the boot parameter 
live-media-path into account, resulting in trying to copy the whole hard disk 
to ram in my case. Attached a patch which should fix the problem.
