1. You are building an F18 livecd
2. The problem is caused by the %postrans script of the kernel package.

Right. Sorry for any confusion.

Do you have a patch? Maybe someone should reassign then to Component kernel.
This bug seems to break all live medias. I guess it should get some higher alertness, shouldn't it?
It's not clear to me if this is a kernel issue, or a livecd-creator one.
latest log actually shows two issues:
1) livecd is creating a dracut.conf that includes ext4 module when ext4 is a built in. Harald said he'll fix dracut to work around dracut.conf files that do that.
2) livecd-creator is not handling some symlink (or so) right with copyfile and it's making it blow up.
moving to livecd-creator for 2.
I fixed the problem mentioned in the bug summary upstream here:
It's a dep ordering issue that keeps cropping up, so I've just removed the dep.
That error would seem to indicate that /etc/localtime is a symlink to the zoneinfo file instead of a copy. I wonder why?
Changing the copyfile to copy2 works fine.
Also, I'd like to encourage people to give livemedia-creator a try for creating live media for F17 and later. You can find it in the lorax package.
This changed in glibc recently:
Regarding "livecd is creating a dracut.conf that includes ext4 module when ext4 is a built in. Harald said he'll fix dracut to work around dracut.conf files that do that." - is it possible the identical issue exists for ext3 but wasn't fixed? I just tried to generate a live image of Rawhide with livecd-creator and I'm looking at:
E: No '/dev/log' or 'logger' included for syslog logging
F: Failed to install ext3
F: installkernel failed in module kernel-modules

This should fix things (18.7 and 17.13) adamw who has reproduced the bug tested it and confirmed that it works. For some reason I don't see the problem on my setup using F16.

Any chance we can update the epel 6 version too?
