livecd-tools - hung on checking filesystem

Hi all,

I am having some difficulty building my own fedora image with livecd-tools or a derivative thereof. I have a heavily modified kickstart file which in addition to installing software does a bunch of other things such as: create users (I added support for that), copy configuration files to /etc, update services by downloading the latest rules, setup databases, updatedb, and a few others.

I recently found out that some of my errors were caused by not disabling selinux while running livecd-tools; however, even after doing fixing that, the script hangs on checking filesystem indefinitely (just before creating the ISO image). Oddly enough, when I run this on a machine with plenty of ram and do everything in ram, it never hangs on this step. It is only when I use a physical disk.

My physical disk is running BTRFS in a raid10 configuration, but I don't see any errors in dmesg.

I have no idea as to what to do to get this working no matter what system I use to build the images on.

I re-ran this on my desktop with selinux setenforce 0 and still got ext4-fs errors when running the newly built image. I'll plan on removing all of my custom scripts and iterating through to see what is causing this error as it makes the system unusable.
