"Verify and boot" not working
Last modified: 2008-05-09 13:09:04 EDT
Description of problem:
I've tried several of my local spins today to see if verifying the
image during boot is working. It seems to be not to work. Also the
latest official release, Fedora 9 Preview, has the same problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora-9-Preview
2. Select "Verify and boot"
media should be verified
The live image itself boots fine. The only problem is that it doesn't verify itself.
Ugh. This is because isomd5sum is getting installed after the kernel and thus
the initrd isn't ending up with checkisomd5sum
Could make mkinitrd depend on isomd5sum, but that's a little bit ugly. But
given where we are time-wise, it's probably the only viable solution. The real
fix is that we need support within rpm to hint that things should be installed first
Or actually, it looks like I can get away with adding some whiteout in
livecd-creator... starting a full set of images to make sure I'm not missing
Yeah, I lied. I just got lucky with the image I built and it was already ending
up with the right ordering.
Just going to build mkinitrd with the requires.
This worked in a test of a F9 livecd a couple of days ago.
