Description David Aquilina 2008-11-10 14:58:18 EST
Description of problem:

When working a 5.3 ia64 problem, I generated a sosreport and attempted to upload it to Issue Tracker. IT refused the upload as it was 100MB+, so I took a look at the sosreport and discovered that it was including all of /boot/efi: 


My system had many more kernels installed, I'm just providing a small sample here. sosreport didn't used to do this -> Regression

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

[root@rx4640 tmp]# rpm -q sos

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run sosreport from 1.7-9.13.el5 on an ia64
2. ...
3. Do not profit
Actual results:

Huge sosreport with kernels and initrds included

Expected results:

Non-huge sosreport

Additional info:

Looking at "sos-capture-elilo-conf.patch" from the sos SRPM in 5.3, this line is probably at fault: 

     24 +        self.addCopySpec("/boot/efi/*")

You probably want that to be "/boot/efi/efi/redhat/elilo.conf" instead.
