Description Edward Rudd 2008-05-21 22:12:23 UTC
Description of problem:
If I disable cleaning. (config_opts['clean'] = False) then mock never builds a
chroot complaining that it couldn't find "useradd"

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

How reproducible:
every time I set config_opts['clean'] is set ot False.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.remove the default build chroot  (ie. fedora-8-i386)
2.set config_opts['clean'] to false
3.run mock --init
Actual results:
ERROR: Could not find useradd in chroot, maybe the install failed?

Expected results:
it to build the chroot.

Additional info:

From looking at the log it seems that mock is trying to do an update instead of
the 'groupinstall buildsys-build' command specified in the config file.
The reason seems to be a check in backend.py on line 252 where a check to see if
the "chroot was cleaned" and if not, it overrides the setup command to update.

This check should be if "chroot was cleaned" and "chroot setup".

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 10:44:59 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '8'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 06:32:08 UTC
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
