Description Amin Astaneh 2007-06-25 17:18:36 UTC
Description of problem:
When running livecd-creator, python fails with this exception:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/livecd-creator", line 1088, in <module>
  File "/usr/bin/livecd-creator", line 1069, in main
  File "/usr/bin/livecd-creator", line 872, in install
  File "/usr/bin/livecd-creator", line 694, in configureSystem
    subprocess.call(["/usr/bin/passwd", "-d", "root"], preexec_fn=self.run_in_root)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/subprocess.py", line 443, in call
    return Popen(*popenargs, **kwargs).wait()
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/subprocess.py", line 593, in __init__
    errread, errwrite)
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.5/subprocess.py", line 1051, in _execute_child
    raise child_exception
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

This is while building livecds based on the fc6 livecd media within fc7 OS. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
livecd-tools 009-1.fc7
python 2.5-12
How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F7 on x86_64 arch
2. Install livecd-tools
3. yum update
4. execute this command with packages:
  livecd-creator --repo=c6,file:///root/repo/core/
--repo=lcd6,file:///root/base_packages --package=qwik-livecd-base
--package=qwik-logos --package=qwik-livecd-disk

Actual results:
Python raises exception and dies.

Expected results:
Complete livecd creation, iso written to disk.

Note that doing the package bits like this isn't at all recommended with the
current tools.

Does your package list include the passwd package?

Comment 3 Amin Astaneh 2007-06-25 20:22:30 UTC
>Does your package list include the passwd package?


Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-06-25 20:29:14 UTC
Aha, I see what it is.  Your package set is only being specified by the
/etc/livecd/*.conf files.  Those are no longer used by the livecd generator. 
See the README for how to currently do things.

Comment 5 Curtis Falany 2007-06-25 20:37:15 UTC
This is Amin's manager.  Did this(ese) package(s) really go from released to 
deprecated in less than 6 months?
