Thanks for all your help. I managed to get it to work with the --nochroot option. Hope to have some results to show soon. I am trying to create an XFCE-based remix, but with all the extra goodies like in Fusion/Kororaa, etc. Cheers Jacek

You can check out my kickstart file for inspiration: https://github.com/valentt/Fusion-Linux/blob/master/kickstarts/fusion-17/fusion-live-extras.ks you should specify which temp folder to use when starting livecd-creator with --temp= option Hope this helps. valent.turkovic
