creation of ppc64 boot images fails
Last modified: 2013-11-21 04:41:57 EST
Description of problem:
image creation of ppc64 netboot images fails in recent nightly.
Logs are available:
This is a Snapshot 2 breaker. Last successful compose was on thursday then compose failed due fips and python-multilib issues. Yesterday's respin of nightly was first which fail on this issue.
Just to limit the bounds.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. Product
Management has requested further review of this request by
Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red Hat
Enterprise Linux release for currently deployed products.
This request is not yet committed for inclusion in a release.
The test compose failed, but due to an actual problem rather than a faulty mk-images script. The netboot image on ppc64 is 55k over the size limit, so we should track that as a separate problem.
Requesting a qa_ack+ now so we can push this change.
New test compose is running to see if we can get the ppc64 netboot image down to the right size:
The last netboot is even bigger, but I also found a problem with the script where it would have still rejected the image if it had been under the target size. I've posted a new patch to fix that.
New test build of anaconda running with the updated patch mentioned in comment #5:
anaconda-13.21.208-1 still fails:
It does seem to get farther than before, which is why the test compose passed. However, buildinstall is still throwing an error and there are a number of files missing.
$ find RHEL6.5-20130925.2/work/ppc64/buildinstall -type f
$ find RHEL6.5-20131003.4/work/ppc64/buildinstall -type f
