cobbler kssendmac and breed suse
Last modified: 2009-11-16 12:22:02 EST
Description of problem:
breed = suse
/boot/grub/menu.lst contains kssendmac
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install a SuSE client
kssendmac exists as a boot parameter on a SuSE client
No kssendmac boot parameter
Find a way to avoid adding kssendmac to the kernel_options string if it's not applicable to the breed.
Hack (since I'm only installing SuSE clients):
# diff utils.py utils.py.ori
< # if len(kernel_txt) < 244:
< # results["kernel_options"]["kssendmac"] = None
> if len(kernel_txt) < 244:
> results["kernel_options"]["kssendmac"] = None
Moving this to the cobbler component, Fedora product.
Oops, I misread the release - can you check if this is still a bug in F10 or F11 and close this if it's fixed?
I just checked the 1.6.8 source, utils.py still has the same code. It's not fixed yet.
# determine if we have room to add kssendmac to the kernel options line
kernel_txt = hash_to_string(results["kernel_options"])
if len(kernel_txt) < 244:
results["kernel_options"]["kssendmac"] = None
Please make sure there's an equivalent Trac item on this open at fedorahosted.org/cobbler ... that's the main list for items we fix upstream.
Seems like this would be an easy one for some one with some SuSE boxes to quickly patch/test, no?
Opened up a Trac item here so we don't loose track of this one.
The bug is reported against a version of Fedora that is no longer maintained and Trac tickets appears to be addressed
Can this bug be closed?
