Description Jan Stodola 2015-10-16 04:41:39 EDT
Description of problem:

/usr/share/doc/lorax-<version>/README.product says:

Lorax now supports creation of product.img and updates.img as part of the build
process. This is implemented using the installimg command which will take the
contents of a directory and create a compressed archive from it. The x86, ppc,
ppc64le and aarch64 templates all look for /usr/share/lorax/product/ and
/usr/share/lorax/updates/ directories while creating the final install tree. If
there are files in those directories lorax will create images/product.img
and/or images/updates.img

From this description it's not clear whether /usr/share/lorax/product/ and /usr/share/lorax/updates/ are directories on the file system where lorax is running from, or directories in lorax installroot (the second is correct, see bug 1244330 comment 11)

Please, make it more clear.
