Unable to build F12 LiveCD using livecd-creator

Hello!!
I'm trying to build F12 LiveCD using livecd-creator, but now I am stuck with an error which dont know how to solve. Speaking of which, I'm not sure I understand its meaning, either

First, some basic info and steps I've taken so far:

Computer which acts like building host has Fedora 12, 32bit. That machine is dedicated just for building, so it has 70gb hdd space, 3gb ram. Following howtos, set SELinux to permissive. In /root, I've created following dirs:
# mkdir /root/livecd-creator/F12live (for .ks files)
# mkdir /root/livecd-creator/cache (for packages from repo)

That computer and .ks files were used for building F10 with support for serbian language, so I've just edited fedora-live-base.ks and supply different repo links (we have our mirror server with all fedora packages). Building process started with:
# livecd-creator --cache=/root/livecd/cache -f F12-LiveCD-Latin -c fedora-livecd-desktop.ks

from F12live directory. Everything starts ok: repo retrieving, package downloading and installing. But, then breaks, and this is the error:
Code:

As I can see, I have 2 errors: first - deprecation warning, second - umount error. Unfortunately, I'm not very much familiar with building process, so I dont understand the second error meaning.

Can someone help me about that??

I'm also providing both .ks files, so you can see their configurations.

Thanks in advance!!!

Here, let me answer to myself

Successfully solved this problem, so I'll write solution if anyone would ever needed. Many thanks to "nailuj24" from #fedora IRC channel

1. freshly installed OS, only with basic packages, don't do update - I'm not sure do you really have to do like this, but on my every day workstation I had that error, on newly installed system did not

2. switch SELinux from enforcing to permissive using "setenforce 0", don't edit /etc/sysconfig/selin

3. install "livecd-tools" and "spin-kickstarts", copy and edit *.ke files from /usr/share/spin-kickstarts/

4. start "livecd-tools" regularly, and that's it

5. If the error from above still occur: #rm -rf /var/tmp/imagecreate-*, and reboot

That would be all!!

Don't know how anyone is getting anywhere with the liveusb creator but I find the utility to not be intuitive at all.
