( Smile (NB -- I have used Nux's latest .ks file for remastering
purposes, available from http://paste.fedoraproject.org/276060/42426991/raw/)

Livecd-creator is part of livecd-tools-13.4.8 (which has a dependency,
python-imgcreate-13.4.8 ) provided by the EPEL repository.

A custom Stella 6.7 remastered with it proceeds normally through installation except for
the last post-install phase which terminates abnormally with an error code 22.

The replacement packages which cure this problem, available on the web, are newer versions
from Scientific Linux, livecd-tools-13.4.10 and python-imgcreate-13.4.10.

On the host Stella 6.7 system on which livecd-creator is to be run, remove the 2 version
13.4.8 packages, and local install the 2 version 13.4.10 packages.

To ensure that the newer packages are incorporated in the remastered Stella 6.7,
utilize a local repository from which to include the new packages, and add a
--excludepkgs=livecd-tools,python-imgcreate parameter to the EPEL repo definition in the kickstart file.

Crying or Very Sad NB: The result I described in the original post was genuine enough, but there
is a potentially serious problem with the software replacement that was used.
The replacement versions for livecd-tools and python-imgcreate were NOT 13.4.10,
but 13.4-10, meaning they were not new fresh versions, but very old versions from
2012.

I will continue to investigate this, and come back with an update when I can .....

Confused I've now completed two more livecd-creator tests.
The following table summarizes the results to date.

(livecd-tools and python-imgcreate packages)

SOURCE..............VERSION.........DATE PACKAGES CREATED....INSTALLATION RESULT



SL..................13.4-10..................2012........... .........................worked

EPEL................13.4.8-1..............June 9, 2015...............................failed

SL..................13.4.7-17.............August 27, 2015............................worked

EL..................13.4.9-1.................2015........... .........................failed
.............(still a test version)


Pending new developments, I'll continue to use 13.4.7-17.

************************************************************ **************

What's adding to my confusion is that I'm having the same problem in trying
to customize SL6.7, and none of the above versions work on it. ----> ?????

Smile For SL6.7, I tried using the older EPEL livecd-tools and
python-imgcreate packages, Version 13.4.5, and fortunately, it worked.
