Description Prarit Bhargava 2005-07-08 14:46:49 EDT
Description of problem: 
I noticed that the boot.img vmlinuz image did not unpack properly and was 
a different size than expected. 
The ia64 build process yields: 
Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/us.map.gz 
Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/us-acentos.map.gz 
Loading /lib/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty/us.map.gz 
cannot find package kernel-BOOT in 
path /mnt/redhat/nightly/rawhide-20050708/ia64/Fedora/RPMS 
kernel-BOOT does not exist for ia64 -- using kernel package 
unpacking /mnt/redhat/nightly/rawhide-20050708/ia64/Fedora/RPMS/kernel-2.6.12-1.1422_FC5.ia64.rpm.ia64 
Wrote /tmp/makebootdisk.initrdimage.7107 (6720k compressed) 
cp: writing `/tmp/makebootdisk.tree.7107/vmlinuz': No space left on device 
(and continues on) 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.  build installation 
Actual results: 
Build finishes, but kernel image is corrupt. 
Expected results: 
Build should fail? -- Jeremy, what do you think? 
Additional info: 
I'm going to pursue this for ia64.

Looks like the size of the boot.img just isn't big enough.  Bumped a bit.
