Description Doug Chapman 2008-04-16 12:34:47 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- and later up through anaconda-

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- still has this issue, the patch appears to not have been
applied yet.

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)
