Bug Description

The usb-creator script puts the compressed filesystem that contains the local repository

as /cdrom/

instead of as an actual cdrom, which can install additional-drivers from...

Jockey is what I believe that additional-drivers program is called, and it fails on a usb live cd.

It can be fixed by including:

deb file:/cdrom/ oneiric main restricted

in the /etc/apt/sources.list file

or as a new file in the sources.list.d directory.

This may be a casper, or jockey, or some other install related fix.
