This is because we're not making the boot.img anymore... 

Can we create a boot.iso on ia64 that doesn't depend on the silly disk image?  I
would think that EFI could handle just a regular iso9660 filesystem, but haven't
Comment 2 Prarit Bhargava 2006-01-05 14:10:07 EST
Oops.  What I meant to say (me gud english) was: 
"It looks like the nightly ia64 rawhide builds are failing for some reason. 
The current boot.iso size is 34k in size which makes no sense at all.  Looks 
like the boot.img file isn't being built?" 
and add the rest of that. 
>Can we create a boot.iso on ia64 that doesn't depend on the silly disk image? 
Hmmm ... I'll try this out with a known good ISO and see if it works :)

I had never tried it and the good news it works.  I'm tracking down why 
the boot.iso is 34k in size... 
Comment 4 Prarit Bhargava 2006-01-23 14:49:20 EST
Jeremy -- I'm working on a patch to dynamically calculate the dosfs boot.img 
size and only create it in ia64.  This patch will be based off the patch in 
I'm wondering if it is possible that other arch's (for whatever possible  
reason) might use EFI?  (I'm not considering that for this patch ... just 
curious as to whether or not other arch's run it...)

Thanks for the patch.  Please try the next Rawhide tree with an anaconda build
(should be tomorrow's tree).
