I'm trying to create a Fedora 22 livecd, but livecd-creator is creating a Fedora 24 livecd. Here is the repo statement in my kickstart file:

repo --name=fedora --mirrorlist=$basearch

I tried passing the releasever option to livecd-creator on the command line:

 livecd-creator --config=workspace/tt_000000_l_tester_f22_os/ --fslabel=virgin.mate --releasever=22 -v -d

The full text output is here. What am I doing wrong?

IMO far better to download an updated ios -

Can you provide the command and the corresponding output (at least the 50 initial lines of the output if it is longer than that) using fpaste or similar services?

hedayat, thanks for your help! I provided the command and uploaded the output.

You're welcome! Is this the complete output? I feel that there should be more line at the top. If not, check if it had created any log files with more detailed output.

also, make sure that there are no other repo= lines in your .ks file.

Yes, it is the complete output. There are no other repo= lines. This link includes -v -d options for more verbose messages,

%include fedora-repo.ks

in fedora-live-base.ks with:

repo --name=fedora --mirrorlist=$basearch

and removing fedora-repo.ks and fedora-repo-not-rawhide.ks resolved the issue.

:) So, there were other repo lines!

No there weren't. Only the lines that said to include those other files. All I did was move the repo line above from fedora-repo-not-rawhide.ks to fedora-live-base.ks

There were, but not in your .ks file but in the included ones!
