anaconda does not create boot.iso on ia64
Last modified: 2008-06-21 16:25:16 EDT
Description of problem:
It appears this is a fallout of the changing from boot.iso to netinst.iso and
then back to boot.iso. On ia64 we no longer get a boot.iso created. I am
digging through the code now to understand why but figured I would file this
just in case it was an obvious fix to you guys.
The last version that worked OK appears to have been just before the commit:
6e48880d0b0aa76f139fdca081c5ca48c146ee82 Change the ISOs we build
Which should have still created netinst.iso as I understand it. From that point
on we no longer got boot.iso or netinst.iso.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-126.96.36.199-1 and later up through anaconda-188.8.131.52-1

patch to replacemissing '/' in mkisofs command line
It appears the problem is we are missing a '/' in the command line of mkisofs
in mk-images.ia64. I am testing with this fix now to ensure that is all that
is wrong but either way this patch is needed.
I have confirmed that my above patch does indeed fix the missing boot.iso problem.
anaconda-184.108.40.206-2 still has this issue, the patch appears to not have been
We haven't done a build since the patch was pushed (well, we did, but it was a
build with only a small targeted fix rather than top of the tree)
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
