I'm using the latest F11 version of squashfs-tools on a fully updated x86_64 F11 box. Just discovered that it works on Fedora-11-i686-Live.iso, but fails with F10-i686-Live.iso. So the new question is, why doesn't it work with the F10 image? Also, after expanding squashfs.img for F11, it gives me another single huge (over 3 GB) file ext3fs.img. I know that rsync doesn't work particularly well between install images - going between the F11 Preview and Final DVDs required about half the full ISO size, while the deltaiso was more like 5%. It would be completely useless for the leap from Fedora N to (N+1). Unless there is a way to expand the Live image into a file tree where many of the files haven't changed, it looks like rsync won't be much help here.
