I booted a Fedora 26 live image and tried to upgrade with the custom
built anaconda rpms (anaconda, anaconda-core, anaconda-gui,
anaconda-tui and anaconda-widgets). They were successful in
installing, I could see with "rpm -q" that the rpms are the ones I
built. However when I started installing to hard disk, my changes to
the anaconda were not visible. Any suggestions to look into?

I am trying to build a live image (with livecd-creator) based on Fedora 26.
In doing so I patch a couple of packages (I maintain them in a local rpm
repository) including anaconda. However with the iso built with the patched
anaconda rpm, I don't see the GUI in booting. The screen goes blank after
sometime and the login screen doesn't appear.
Then I tried to build anaconda without any patches and still the result is
So I suspect the issue is with me building anaconda locally. What I did was,
1. I downloaded the srpm of anaconda with dnf
2. extracted the anaconda.spec file modified it to have the patch (my patch
is there in the SOURCES directory)
3. built the srpm, and from that a mock build to get the rpm, and updated my
local rpm repository with the built anaconda*.rpm files.
Any help to identify and fix what may have gone wrong is highly appreciated.
