Description Rich O'Hare 2006-09-12 18:24:46 EDT
Description of problem:
  Buildinstall leaves packages out of the pkgfile.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run buildinstall against original, un-updated, FC5 RPMS.
   buildinstall --comp dist-$release.$date \
   --pkgorder $FCBASE/pkgfile.$date --version $release \
   --product 'Fedora Core' --release "Fedora Core $release" \
   --prodpath Fedora $FCBASE/$arch
Actual results:
Count the number of RPMS included in the pkgfile.$date. Only
1749 of the 2185 packages are included.

Expected results:
All 2185 packages should be in the pkgfile.

Additional info: build script and anaconda.log attached.
Note the build script completes without error, but the CD's which are produced 
fail when attempting to install the bootloader.

Comment 2 Rich O'Hare 2006-09-13 12:54:10 EDT
It looks like it is actually the pkgorder python script that fails to include
all RPM packages.

I tried it on an x86_64 machine, and it worked. For some reason it does not work
Comment 8 Jeff Moe (jebba) 2007-01-12 23:11:13 EST
I have seen this problem and can reproduce it by running pkgorder by hand. For
some reason, in my environment, if I run as root, it misses 10% of the packages
or so (the exact same packages every time). If I run it as my regular user, it
works correctly. This is true whether I use `su` or `su -`. I looked at `env`
and LANG and such were the same. Adding PATH:/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime, one of
the only significant differences in the `env` had no affect. I have 8,526
packages that I'm working with, so my environment is different...

The same problem is described in this thread:
