Description Richard W.M. Jones 2013-08-31 04:36:26 EDT
Description of problem:

See bug 1003153.  Uninstalling a module left an empty directory
in /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d.  After that, dracut would no longer

I: *** Including module: i18n ***
I: *** Including module: drm ***
I: *** Including module: growroot ***
F: installkernel failed in module growroot

Deleting the directory fixed dracut.  However dracut should be
more robust in this case.  It should give a warning, naming the
empty directory, but should not fail.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

dracut 029-1.fc19

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an empty directory under /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d
2. Try to run dracut.

Actual results:

Fails, unnecessarily.

Expected results:

Since the patch is upstream, we can close this bug now, right?
