I had the same problem last night.  I also tried the latest livecd
script from git (which has the --compress option) but that didn't work
at all for me.  It kept erroring out claiming there was only ~1700mb
free on the card, which is completely wrong.  So it thought there wasn't
enough space for the image, and quit.

I spent several hours just trying to make a bootable SD card last night
and had no luck.  Is this the state we're currently in?  If people have
been successful can someone please doc the real steps somewhere?  The
wiki instructions don't seem to work.
