Description Jesse Keating 2008-07-28 16:13:17 EDT
I'm having difficulty getting /usr/sbin/wrapper to do the right thing that
anaconda expects, IE writing out a zImage into an output directory.  Looking at
the --help output I see options for -O and -v, -O being output and -v being
verbose.  However using -v I get a usage statement, where the usage statement
says -o is the output, and sure enough, using -O I get a usage statement as well.

Using -o I still don't get an image in my output directory, only something oddly
named in PWD.

/usr/sbin/wrapper -o /out/ppc64.img -i
/srv/pungi/f10-alpha.4/10-Alpha/ppc/os/ppc/ppc64/ramdisk.image.gz -D
/usr/lib/kernel-wrapper/ /srv/pungi/f10-alpha.4/10-Alpha/ppc/os/ppc/ppc64/vmlinuz

seems to just produce 

zImage.4890.o: ELF 32-bit MSB relocatable, PowerPC or cisco 4500, version 1
(SYSV), with unknown capability 0x41000000 = 0x11676e75, with unknown capability
0x10000 = 0x90402, not stripped

(and last but not least, wrapper fails completely if gzip isn't installed,
kernel-bootwrapper should Require gzip)
Comment 1 Jesse Keating 2008-07-28 17:27:40 EDT
Changing summary as I've narrowed down the main problem, gzip is a requirement
and if not installed, odd things happen.

The documentation being wrong is because '--help' somehow passes into objdump
and the -O and -v is from objdump.

I'll fix the requires.
