Creating Fedora Live CD error


I am using livecd-creator and am getting errors. Does anyone know how to fix. See below:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/livecd-creator", line 1088, in <module>
File "/usr/bin/livecd-creator", line 1069, in main
File "/usr/bin/livecd-creator", line 871, in install
self.installPackages(self.packages, self.epackages, self.groups)
File "/usr/bin/livecd-creator", line 479, in installPackages
map(lambda pkg: self.ayum.selectPackage(pkg), packageList)
File "/usr/bin/livecd-creator", line 479, in <lambda>
map(lambda pkg: self.ayum.selectPackage(pkg), packageList)
File "/usr/bin/livecd-creator", line 215, in selectPackage
self.install(pattern = pkg)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 1759, in install
parsePackages(self.pkgSack.returnPackages(),[kwargs['pattern']] , casematch=1)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 501, in <lambda>
pkgSack = property(fget=lambda self: self._getSacks(),
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 382, in _getSacks
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 206, in populateSack
sack.populate(repo, mdtype, callback, cacheonly)
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 141, in populate
if self._check_db_version(repo, mydbtype):
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 198, in _check_db_version
if repo.repoXML.repoData.has_key(mdtype):
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 684, in <lambda>
repoXML = property(fget=lambda self: self._getRepoXML(),
File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/yum/", line 680, in _getRepoXML
raise Errors.RepoError, ('Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: %s' % self)
yum.Errors.RepoError: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: released


Forgot to mention this is Fedora 7

There is some discussion of this problem in the comments on this page:

It does not look, however, like a satisfactory solution was found. They mention needing to be root, but I don't think that was the problem.
