I have a problem with creating modified distribution (subset of Fedora,

I tryed to make ISO file with anaconda from Fedora Core 1 and from
anaconda from RHEL3 and I have got the same Anaconda crash (installation
exited abnormally or so).

Could be the problem in signing packages by my own key?

Probably not.

This is what I did:

export PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/anaconda
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime:/usr/share/comps-extras
export BASEDIR=/var/ftp/pub/linux/mydist/i386

# copy RedHat/RPMS/* and RedHat/base/comps.xml to $BASEDIR

genhdlist --withnumbers --productpath RedHat $BASEDIR
pkgorder $BASEDIR i386 > /tmp/pkgorder.txt
getfullcomps.py comps.xml $BASEDIR i386 > /tmp/comps.temp
# no error mesage here

pushd /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime
buildinstall --comp $BASEDIR/HLinux/base/comps.xml \
            --pkgorder /tmp/pkgorder.txt --version 1 \
            --product "MyDist" --release 1 $BASEDIR

Did you get errors running buildinstall? If so, look at the archives. There was a patch posted that should help.
