Description Richard W.M. Jones 2010-04-21 14:10:14 UTC
Spec URL:

febootstrap is a Fedora equivalent to Debian's debootstrap.  You can
use it to create a basic Fedora filesystem, and build initramfs
(initrd.img) or filesystem images.

febootstrap also includes a separate tool to minimize filesystems by
removing unneeded locales, documentation etc.

The main difference from other appliance building tools is that this
one doesn't need to be run as root.

Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2013-10-30 18:25:52 UTC
This Bugzilla has been reviewed by Red Hat and is not planned on being
addressed in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, and therefore will be closed.
If this bug is critical to production systems, please contact your Red
Hat support representative and provide sufficient business
justification. Issue is already fixed in RHEL-6/7.
