Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 487230
buildinstall generates invalid .treeinfo, breaking virt-install
Last modified: 2009-03-07 06:07:01 EST
Current (20090224) rawhide .treeinfo has:
initrd = images/pxeboot/initrd.img
boot.iso = images/boot.iso
kernel = images/pxeboot/vmlinuz
which is normal, but the [general] section says:
arch = i586
buildinstall passes --arch i586 to both mk-images and maketreeinfo.py. mk-images changes its arch to i386 (which is correct) but maketreeinfo.py was never informed of the change.
This causes virt-install (and other tools) to be unable to find the images-$arch section (which must *always* be present), making it unable to install Rawhide.
I think the proper fix is to pass 'i386' (i.e. basearch) to both mk-images and maketreeinfo.py.
A patch been sent to anaconda-devel-list for review.
Committed and pushed your patches. This should be fixed in up the next build of anaconda. Thanks.
I was able to get to the graphical stage of anaconda with yesterday's rawhide, so I believe this is fixed.
