I´m having this issue also, but only when I enable the updates repo.

Please, take a look at the attached screenshot. This is what happens
when the system tries to run firstboot.

It's the same message when I try to run it from CLI in a terminal window:

[root at localhost ~]# firstboot
  File "/usr/sbin/firstboot", line 101, in <module>
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/", line 150, in __init__
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/", line 426, in loadModules
    loaded = imputil.imp.load_module(module, found[0], found[1], found[2])
  File "/usr/share/firstboot/modules/", line 10, in <module>
    from firstboot.config import *

Doesn't matter if it's a LiveCD installed or a DVDInstall installed. The
error is the same.

Assunto: [Ambassadors] F8 Live CD respin without first boot wizard?!?

our local LUG organized Fedora/Ubuntu install fest and I created for that
occasion respin of Fedora 8 Live CD with updated packages because I didn't
want to have 10 people go and try to get 200MB (or is it even
more) of updates all at once.

I found out one bug that livecd.creator has or kickstart file, or something
else, so please help me because I don't know where to file this bug.

I recreated the Fedora 8 Live CD with this command:
livecd-creator -c livecd-fedora-8-desktop.ks -f F8Desktop -t /virtual/tmp

It boots and it installs to hard disk without problems, but after first boot
there is no "first boot wizard" that creates user so all users get is an
empty gdm screen to which then can it they know enter root as a user.

Has anybody tried making respins for F8 Live CD? Do your lice CDs work as
original F8 so that you get first time boot wizard that asks for user name
and password so you create user that will log on later?
