Comment 1 Matt Domsch 2008-02-02 22:42:26 UTC
jeremy, as always, has the answer.   Commit
901f0871dfc99b04c184301603a808c36c958442

is also needed to be applied to the -base*.ks configs.  Having done so for the
Fedora 8 -base.ks file, the build succeeds.
	 


Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2008-02-03 14:31:22 UTC
Note that that's hopefully just a temporary change needed... breaking compat
with working configs would be unfortunate.  So thanks for reminding me so that I
can be sure to have it cleaned up before building livecd-tools-014, which I'm
hoping to get out this week.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2008-02-04 16:39:57 UTC
Applied the change to the f8 configs in git.  There's not really a good way to
avoid it with the changes without a pretty gross hack.  If more people start
hitting it with custom configs, though, then I'll add the hack
