Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 111905
mkbootdisk is missing on AMD64
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
As mkbootdisk package is ExclusiveArch, there is no package for AMD64
platform. As there is a possibility to build boot ISO file, there is
no reason to exclude this package from other platforms (I have no FDD
on my current servers but CD-ROM).
Please apply next patch and remove arch restriction from SPEC file.
The patch print out error message for x86_64 and disallow a creation
of bootdisk on FDD.
There should be probably a test for 2.88MB floppies too.
I tested mkbootdisk-1.5.1-1 from FC1 and RHEL3.
Created attachment 96466 [details]
Forcing ISO bootdisk on x86_64 (AMD64)
As this package is pure shell script it can be build as noarch.
Add BuildArch: noarch to SPEC file and make conditions for different
architectures like patch above.
fixed in mkbootdisk-1.5.2-6
