I am trying to run my own live-build on a bookworm install, but get this error:
Errors were encountered while processing:
 linux-image-6.1.0-13-rt-amd64
 linux-image-rt-amd64

Any ideas?

You don't say how you have created your live build environment.
To start your project, please fork this repository github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc-live-build and checkout the bookworm branch
eg git checkout bookworm
This has had my repository that I used to build this iso merged into it.
github.com/rodw-au/linuxcnc-live-build
There is a lot of activity right now in preparation for the 2.9.1 release
The ISO from this installer are now on the linuxcnc web site so we are getting there!

debian 12 raspi-firmware: missing /boot/firmware, did you forget to mount it?
run-parts: /etc/initramfs/post-update.d//z50-raspi-firmware exited with return code 1
dpkg: error processing package initramfs-tools (--configure):
installed initramfs-tools package post-installation script subprocess returned error exit status 1

That is a pretty old ISO of Debian BookWorm, the 12.2 ISO has no such issues.

Its hard to keep track of things when there are more than one user with issues on the on thread!
I think the installer has been rebuilt on Debian 12.2 now.
robh did say he was doing an upgrade when he had his problem. So it must have been an earlier install.
In any case once, you do a sudo apt upgrade you will be upgraded to 12.2 plus any additional security patches.

Probably since we get this rpi issues about once a week or two, it was much often before.

I am on a brand new install of Debian 12.2. Did the full upgrade to latest then followed forking of the repository and checking out the bookworm version.

What should my apt sources be?

The installer should set the repositories up correctly. (main contrib non-free non-free-firmware) provided you have an internet connection. It seems to be dynamically generated.
refer to :
auto/config (debian  are meant to be set up here but it needs overriding)
config/archives (various files end up in different apt folders based on their name for chroot and binary)
config/includes.installer/preseed.cfg (override here)
config/hooks/normal (510,520,530)

The hooks are used to add some third party repos but not install anything from them

Yay! 2.9.1 is officially released. Grab your .ISO from here
linuxcnc.org/iso/linuxcnc_2.9.1-amd64.hybrid.iso

I will update the download URL in the first post once I gather the strength to tackle the forum editor!

Also note that Linuxcnc 2.9.1 is now in Debian Unstable which means in about 5 days, it will be in Debian 13 (Trixie)
Very cool!

I am trying to install using the image linked above. The image is on a USB drive. It boots. I select start installer.

I see some errors go by that mention:
mount: mounting /dev/sda on /media failed.
mount: mounting /dev/sda1 on /media failed.
mount: mounting /dev/sda2 on /media failed.
mount: mounting /dev/sda3 on /media failed.

I go through the country and language selections and then I get the error that "Your installation media couldn't be mounted. When installing from a CD-ROM, this probably means that the disk was not in the drive. If so you can insert it and try again."

I did find that if I unplug the USB drive and plug it back in and have it retry mounting the drive it will continue the install process.
