The RPMs don't create a features.cfg.

Mostly likely you were root when you ran makecat, and now the Interchange 
daemon can't write to the catalog directories for its status and log 
files. Try doing (as root):

chown -R interch:interch /var/lib/interchange/your-catalog-dir

And then restart Interchange.
