Description Thomas Vander Stichele 2008-06-26 23:35:27 UTC
Description of problem:

I'm trying to create a Live CD.  After selecting everything, Revisor is building
the Installation Images.

It's at Cleaning Up Build Environment - Pending.

Task Progress is filled completely,
Total Progress about quarter way through.

The console is showing this python backtrace:

Traceback (most recent call last):

Comment 1 Thomas Vander Stichele 2008-06-26 23:51:54 UTC
I added a print to see what buildinstall ends up being:
THOMAS: buildinstall ['/usr/share/revisor/scripts/F9-buildinstall', '--debug',
'--product', 'Fedora', '--variant', 'f9f-i386', '--version', '9', '--release',
'Fedora 9', '/var/tmp/revisor-pungi/9/f9f-i386/i386/os',

of course, this script in /usr/share/revisor/scripts is not executable, and
neither are its friends:

[thomas@ana ~]$ ls /usr/share/revisor/scripts/ -l
total 20
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3856 2008-05-23 00:15 F7-buildinstall
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3679 2008-05-23 00:15 F8-buildinstall
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4528 2008-05-23 00:15 F9-buildinstall
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3497 2008-05-23 00:15 RHEL5-buildinstall

No wonder it doesn't work :)

Comment 2 John (J5) Palmieri 2008-06-27 15:01:13 UTC
looks like a packaging issue but I can't spot it.  The scripts are executable in
the tarball.

Comment 3 John (J5) Palmieri 2008-06-27 15:12:09 UTC
jumped the gun there, something is wrong with the makefile when it installs to
the buildroot

Comment 4 John (J5) Palmieri 2008-06-27 15:59:16 UTC
Submitted a patch upstream that fixes this issue by moving the scripts to


Please look at the specfile changes in the patch and add those to the next
build.  I would hold off on the build however as there are a number of other
bugs being looked at.

Comment 5 Jeroen van Meeuwen 2008-06-30 16:37:05 UTC
Fixed in GIT, ticket #338 closed upstream (thanks J5)
