Description Bruno Wolff III 2007-12-26 13:33:39 EST
Description of problem:
When I used the --working-directory option to have scratch space on a file
system that had enough room while creating live media, I ran into a problem
because when revisor ran livecd-creator it didn't tell livecd-creator to use the
scratch area and it used its default of /var/tmp.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run revisor with live media and a specified working directory
Actual results:
The working directory isn't used when livecd-creator is run.

Expected results:
That livecd-creator would use the specified working directory.

Comment 2 Jeroen van Meeuwen 2008-02-16 12:04:06 EST
What we're seeing is that the installroot setting for yum (/var/tmp/revisor by
default) is being used to loopmount the live media filesystem on. This isn't
consuming any space on the /var/tmp/ filesystem but I can see where it can work
confusing. Revisor might want to override the setting in the yum configuration
if the working_directory has been changed.
Comment 3 Jeroen van Meeuwen 2008-05-23 06:42:23 EDT
There's no way Revisor can change this on the fly. Please adjust the installroot
setting in the appropriate YUM configuration file (/etc/revisor/conf.d/) to
reflect the working directory you configure for Revisor
