Description Colin Charles 2004-05-28 06:03:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040510 Epiphany/1.2.4

Description of problem:
The images/ directory is now totally empty, meaning no bootable
installer is being found

From a working good tree, there should be "mac" and "pseries" as
sub-directories, and a boot.iso to allow installation from the latest

This is currently unavailable, and is possibly a bug in the build scripts.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit


Actual Results:  2. Its empty

Expected Results:  It contains 2 sub-directories - mac, pseries.
Inside each, a boot.iso will exist.

Just random tree wonkiness with build machines going bad.  It happens,
new build machine has been set up now which should hopefully help
things a bit.
Comment 2 David Woodhouse 2004-06-03 09:44:53 EDT
Images still absent. Failure mode seems deterministic:

Reassigning to rel-eng.

Comment 5 Paul Nasrat 2004-07-05 09:02:39 EDT
As if by magic :)


I just did a build myself and was going to add a comment that that
seemed OK.  Checking we now have rawhide ppc boot images.
Comment 6 Barry K. Nathan 2004-07-10 05:09:10 EDT
The rawhide ppc boot images seem to be gone again...
Comment 7 Paul Nasrat 2004-07-10 05:27:17 EDT
Different issue - probably just tree breakage in rawhide:

[09Jul2004 05:39:04] Package mismatches exist on ppc
[09Jul2004 05:40:33] CRITICAL ERROR : Broken deps exist on ppc
[09Jul2004 05:40:33] No package conflicts on ppc
Comment 8 Elliot Lee 2004-07-16 12:43:03 EDT
Broken deps will be there on-and-off - it's up to the package
maintainers to fix them.
Comment 9 David Woodhouse 2004-08-06 06:39:34 EDT
Doesn't seem to be dependencies. There's bizarre stuff happening.
First we see this while running buildinstall...

Removing unused python files in hdimage... WARNING: Unique disk
signatures don't exist
* setting file_context_path to nil
rm: cannot remove `/tmp/treedir.32288/image-template/./biosdisk of 80
is None':
No such file or directory

... then the line 'biosdisk of 80 is None' appears to be in the
generated pkgorder file, and genhdlist barfs:

genhdlist: FATAL ERROR -> "biosdisk of 80 is None" is not a package name!!
Your package list file
/mnt/redhat/nightly/rawhide-20040806/ppc-logs/pkgorder.19032 is most
likely CORRUPT!

Re-opening, it has disappeared again :)
