Description Arun S A G 2013-11-15 10:25:41 EST
Description of problem:
I cloned the fedup-dracut repo https://github.com/wgwoods/fedup-dracut/ and created fedora-dracut rpms and installed them on a Fedora 19 system. I then created a 'fedup' repo and used it as --instrepo (i did this because i needed to do some cleanups after the upgrade using upgrade-cleanup.sh)

But after the reboot, my boot hangs saying (during actual upgrade)

'dracut-pre-pivot: Warning: UPGRADEROOT is unset, can't save initramfs'

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a fedup inst repo and try to use it for upgrade

Actual results:

Expected results:

Bugzilla is the wrong place for bug reports about pre-released code - file that stuff in github, please.

Anyway, the "UPGRADEROOT is unset, can't save initramfs" stuff was removed from fedup-dracut in commit b4cbcdd, back in October, so I don't think you built your upgrade.img correctly?

I'm just going to assume it was either a build problem or a temporary bug with unfinished code that's now finished.

If you get the same error after building images with fedup-dracut-0.8.0 (from the packages in koji or the tag in git), feel free to reopen this. Please include the versions of fedup, dracut, and fedup-dracut (using commit IDs if you're installing untagged code from git).
