Your / partition does not match the the live image

anaconda-126.96.36.199-1 & pykickstart-1.54-1.
Installing from a liveusb stick which was created from a livecd iso.
LiveCD was created with ext3.
When I run "liveinst" to install.
I select "replace existing Linux system" or "Use entire drive".
In both cases the following error occurs.
"The following errors occurred with your partitioning:
Your / partition does not match the the live image you are installing from. It
must be formatted as ext3.
This can happen if there is not enough space on your hard drive(s) for the
Press 'OK' to choose a different partitioning option."
"Use entire drive" should just nuke everything right?
It nukes everything, but autopartitioning doesn't take into account the fs type of the live image that's being installed and is always defaulting to ext4. So if you build an ext3 live image, that causes problems.
I've pushed a fix for this to master (bbf767d27d7032d1afdd0ba05ad1897e3b5cb56c) although we're still trying to decide if we're going to include it in F12 or not given how late in the game this is.
Thanks for the fix, would love it if you can get it in F11, I hope you mean F11 & not F12?
Ok I see -55 will test.
