Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "<string>", line 64, in __iter__
  File "/usr/lib/yum-plugins/whiteout.py", line 46, in

    (step, instance) = anaconda.dispatch.currentStep()
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1115, in <module>
SyntaxError: not well-formed (invalid token): line 1, column 0

Does anyone have any ideas?

It crashes half way through the build process with the above errors

Thanks Nathan
