Followup - after getting in to the code to see what was up, the rhpl library is only attempted after system_config_keyboard is not present.

I was able to get a successful run after typing:

yum -y install system-config-keyboard

For some reason, CentOS 7 didn't come with this package by default.

Thanks for the reply Grant.

I can't seem to get livecd--tools to work under CentOS 7 at all - the "rhpl" package has apparently been removed, and livecd-tools requires it to run.

I found it in the rpmforge repository, but the package requires Python 2.6 - CentOS 7 is Python 2.7 (the entire reason for the upgrade on my end, in fact).

Secondly, Lorax doesn't appear to do what I need it to do - I need to generate a LiveCD image from a custom kickstart file, and it looks like Lorax creates an install ISO, not an image designed to come up and run utilities, perform operations and actions from RAM.

Do you have any more suggestions?  I'm about to just start commenting out code and see if that helps.

Centos 7 uses livecd-tools, there are rpms available if you google.
EL7 includes lorax which also works fine.
