Description James Laska 2008-08-28 11:02:37 EDT
Description of problem:

When using the --logfile parameter when creating an image, the logfile is empty unless you provide the -d or -v options.

I was expecting all stdout to be sent to the logfile.  Is that correct?

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run: appliance-tools -n ThinCrust --logfile /tmp/foo.out

Actual results:

/tmp/foo.out is empty

Expected results:

/tmp/foo.out should have all stdout messages?

Maybe this is a moot point considering the doc says what it will do :(

--logfile=FILE   Save debug information to FILE
Comment 2 David Huff 2008-09-05 12:01:05 EDT
Yea because the rest of the output is not logging info but output to sub-process calls, like yum and grub commands.
