Description of problem:
After applying latest up2date to ES3 Update 2 and merging them to the
tree, installations made will fail to run in graphical mode with X
start error. In /tmp/X.log there is a message about missing
liblaus.so.1 library. Comps.xml doesn't include laus-libs package at
all, so probably buildinstall won't extract the required file from
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ES Update 2
2. Up2date to latest packages.
3. Rebuild installer with buildinstall.
4. Try to install.
Actual Results: Graphical installation failed, VESA driver not
loaded, dropped down to text mode.
Expected Results: Graphical installation mode.
Another small thing - this is what /usr/share/anaconda/anaconda.conf
reads in stable version.
Title Red Hat Linux Beta
This isn't supported. A newer laus has been released since the U2
spin of trees which splits laus into having a laus-libs package which
then also needs to be pulled into PACKAGES in
As far as I know buildinstall runs upd-instroot within itself, so
exactly no laus-libs package included there, that's the reason why it
failed. Can't you just add it to the stable tree, so updates will go
I added it there, but that doesn't help the currently released
packages much since I'm not psychic :-)
