Hi Marco,

Got it working now.  livecd-creator should be run on x86_64 as:

sudo setarch i386 livecd-creator ...

D'oh, I think OLPC asked Warren to push that X driver update, and it
sounds like we didn't test it properly.  Is there a good way to select
which version of an RPM to use in kickstart, maybe?

I tried building Rawhide, and got the error you mentioned, linked below.
Running "bash-3.2# mount -t jffs2 mtd0 /mnt" works, though, so I'm not
sure what's up / why it's not creating /dev/root properly.  Jeremy, any
