Description Galder Zamarreño 2008-12-31 11:51:31 EST
Instructions in http://docs.fedoraproject.org/install-guide/f10/en_US/sn-installing-from-harddrive.html are incorrect. Doing "cp -a" throws an SELinux error. It should instead "cp -rp" as indicated in: http://galder.zamarreno.com/?p=244
Comment 1 Karsten Wade 2008-12-31 18:40:19 EST
Agreed on the mistake with -a, but do we need to copy recursively while preserving other contexts?  Don't we just need to copy the install.img instead of the entire tree under images/?
