I followed this tutorial to create my custom debian CD with build-simple-cdd but I get always an error even I use the basic config.

The ISO file is created (named debian-7.3-amd64-CD-1.iso) but when I try to install it I get the following error:

Avertissement: Failure trying to run: chroot /target dpkg --force-depends --install  /var/cache/apt/archives/base-files_7.1wheezy4_amd64.deb /var/cache/apt/archives/base-passwd_3.5.26_amd64.deb

cat package-list |grep base acpi-support-base install alsa-base install base-files install base-passwd install desktop-base install dnsmasq-base install exim4-base install gcc-4.7-base:amd64 install geoip-database install gettext-base install gir1.2-gst-plugins-base-0.10 install groff-base install gstreamer0.10-plugins-base:amd64 install libfile-basedir-perl install libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0:amd64 install libilmbase6 install libreoffice-base install libreoffice-base-core install libsnmp-base install libxml-sax-base-perl install linux-base install lsb-base install ncurses-base install netbase install perl-base install powermgmt-base install sgml-base install xfonts-base install

Are there any other error messages? Say on virtual terminal 3 or 4 (Alt-F3 or Alt-F4)? – derobert Mar 19 '14 at 16:02
During the creation of the custom cd, you ran dpkg --get-selections >package-list to make a list of the packages right? if you grep base package-list you find base-files and base-passwd as a result on your screen? – nwildner Mar 19 '14 at 17:22
