Description Doug Maxey 2008-01-20 03:49:36 EST
Description of problem:

While attempting to create a ppc iso with pungi on an x64
machine, during the mksiofs stage the -magic flag was passed
with an arg from anaconda but the use of the flag was disabled
during the compile with cmake as there was no

OSError: Got an error from /usr/bin/mkisofs: This program \
has been compiled without magic library support.
Ignoring the -magic option.

Hmm.  Tried to rebuild with the file-devel package installed,
but nothing changed.  Will keep digging to see why cmake is
not picking up the file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. modify /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/pypungi/config.py
   to hardcode the arch to ppc.
2. run pungi

Actual results:
3. observe that pungi dies with genisoimage error (mkisofs)

Expected results:
The iso file would be created.

Additional info:
see the attached tail -40 of the session log.

Ah.  Bumped the Release in the spec file, rebuilt the src.rpm,
and now cmake is finding the magic.h.  dunno...

I know that recently the BuildRequires received a major
makeover, was one of the losses the file-devel package?  If so,
then this package prob needs an explicit BuildRequires: file-devel

However, running the newly installed genisoimage/mkisofs barks
that the anaconda/boot/magic is not present, which indeed is
the case.  Where did that file go?
