I suspect the problem is that the Fedora-10-comps.xml is required to get the
package groups (createrepo cannot create this file from thin air).
Once this comps.xml file is found in some repository, livecd creator seems
to stick to this repository, ignoring the other repositories?
Maybe try to manually drop a copy of the comps.xml file "somewhere" into
your local repository, while commenting out all the other repositories
(leaving only yours enabled).
I got tired of this problem and worked around it by just re-using the same
cache directory over and over.
this is what I used
maybe --cost works for repos being adressed with http:// not file://
