Hi Emmanuel,

I've been following your work with interest, but sadly never found time
to chime in so far.

I'm personally interested in a solution that would allow to create DVD /
USB live media with persistence and VirtualBox images at the same time
from a single source.

At the moment, I'm repacking Ubuntu LTS images and producing VirtualBox
machines and USB sticks using the usb-creator-gtk, but this process, of
course, leaves much to be desired.

In what concerns Veewee, yes, these are all very typical issues with
Ruby projects and I don't think that it's gonna get any better :-(

Yes, I would very much prefer to use libvirt too. Do you have the
details w.r.t. what's wrong with its virtualbox backend?


I was under impression that it's ought to work...

Sincerely yours,
