Making a livecd iso - for f15 but from within f14?
Does anyone know if it is possible to make a livecd iso for f15 by
running livecd-creator from an f14 system?
I did try to create a mock-chroot for an f15 environment in a running
f14 system, and building from there after installing livecd-tools and
spin-kickstarts in the chroot - but it failed
(The terminal had the following if it is any help:
mock-chroot> livecd-creator -v --logfile /tmp/livecd-creator.log -c
Using label 'fedora-livecd--i686-201105311432' and name

about the loop device? (If so, recompile or `modprobe loop'.)

I guess this indicates I can't do it from within mock?
This same system is able to run f15 install iso builds using pungi
within a mock chroot without any problem.
I guess that from a running f15 system, it is possible to use
livecd-creator running as root from some starting directory to create
a livecd - the reason I want to do this is to have a livecd with a UK
keyboard as the default, but built with my own package list. But my
build machine is running f14 and not f15!
Thanks for any hints to resolve this.
