Description Valent Turkovic 2008-01-22 13:38:43 UTC
Description of problem:
revisor gives lots of these messages:

cp: cannot stat 'chroot': No such file or directory

if I do in console:

# stat chroot
stat: cannot stat `chroot': No such file or directory

I get the same error, but if I do with full path then I don't get this error:

# stat /usr/sbin/chroot

Please verify if the package "coreutils" is in the package set.

Comment 2 Valent Turkovic 2008-01-24 12:09:03 UTC
off course it is

# yum install coreutils
Package coreutils - 6.9-12.fc8.i386 is already installed.

Comment 3 Philip Heuer 2008-02-04 02:25:27 UTC
I also encounter this issue during the "Build isolinux and Installer" step. I
tried creating symbolic links to chroot in both /bin and /usr/bin. This did not
resolve the "cp: cannot stat `chroot': No such file or directory" message. I am
using coreutils-6.9-12.fc8 and revisor-2.0.5-15.fc8. Running "rpm -ql coreutils
| grep chroot" confirms that coreutils installs chroot to /usr/sbin/chroot. The
coreutils package was also included in the distribution package set.

Comment 4 Philip Heuer 2008-02-04 03:19:41 UTC
After finding the --debug flag in /usr/sbin/revisor, I found that the errors are
occurring during the following the buildinstall stage of "Build isolinux and
Installer". The pertinent debug output was:

Initting progress bar for Building Installation Images
Setting rundir to /var/tmp/revisor-rundir
Running command: /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/buildinstall --product Fedora
--variant f8-i386-custom-local --version 8 --release "Fedora 8" --prodpath
Packages /var/tmp/revisor-pungi/8/f8-i386-custom-local/i386/os
Extra information: /var/tmp/revisor-rundir False None

Comment 5 Philip Heuer 2008-02-04 05:04:26 UTC
After more tracing, the problem seems to lie in
/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/upd-instroot script (called from buildinstall) which
is in the anaconda-runtime package. I have filed Bug 431392 against the anaconda
package since there is not a separate anaconda-runtime package in the bugzilla

Comment 6 Jeroen van Meeuwen 2008-02-04 10:55:32 UTC
Reopened that bug after it was closed "RAWHIDE" with the indication that they'll
need to be more specific about what is causing this.
