After installing all of the required packages from software management, Image Creator still does not create image or bootstrap software selections.

When I click on finish and let the creation failure occur, the config.xml looks like this....

Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<image name="test-usb" schemeversion="2.0">
  <description type="system">
    <author></author>

Notice that the <packages> section is missing after the repositories. If I click on the "change" button and select a package group like KDE4 and select accept, the packages are still not added to the config.xml.

Any ideas would help. I'm baffled by this.
