fatal initscripts package error during install.
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:04:25 EST
anaconda reports an fatal error installing initscripts. Happening on
VC1 shows a bunch of errors from rpmdb like
rpmdb: /var/lib/rpm/Triggername: unable to flush: Read-only file system
(repeat for various rpm related files)
What is the error?

output of rpm on VC2
this is the output of running
% rpm --root /mnt/sysimage -ivh /mnt/source/Fedora/RPMS/initscripts-.....
There are a bunch of errors about being unable to create files. Somehow
/mnt/sysimage managed to get remounted as read-only.
So, probably not an initscripts bug (unless initscripts did the remount). Not
really sure where problem is coming from....
The first warning is just a key thing. The %pre failed presumably
because of the read-only filesystem.
Punting to anaconda.
This was the first kernel bug that we hit last night. sct has a fix
for it, but then we hit more :/

log of /proc/mounts and install.log during install
This log shows the output of:
- grep /mnt/sysimage /proc/mounts
- tail -n 3 /mnt/sysimage/root/install.log
during the course of the install.
As you can see, /mnt/sysimage is mounted read-write until anaconda begins
installing initscripts. At that point:
- /mnt/sysimage shows up as being mounted read-only
- the tail of install.log contains only null characters
I am no longer seeing these symptoms in the installer. Is this bug
fixed in the kernel, or has Jeremy implemented a workaround in the
installer? If the former, please close.
Just worked around for now (we're not doing selinux stuff for test1 :()
did this ever get fixed properly ?
