livecd-iso-to-disk shouldn't ask to overwrite boot loader
Last modified: 2009-07-21 14:31:25 EDT
Use livecd-iso-to-disk with on a USB stick already written previously by livecd-iso-to-disk.
Updating boot config file
Installing boot loader
file is read only, overwrite anyway (y/n) ?
Processes running at this time:
/usr/bin/livecd-iso-disk --noverify --skipcopy --reset-mbr livecd.iso /dev/sdb1
syslinux -d syslinux /dev/sdb1
mmove -D o -D O s:/ldlinux.sys s:/syslinux/ldlinux.sys
There is no good reason for the program to ask for permission to overwrite this file. It seems that mtools changed to prompt instead of just go ahead.
I couldn't figure out how to use mattrib to unprotect ldlinux.sys prior to syslinux tries to install it again.
Fixed in git, although the fix is ugly.
I just noticed this still happens in rawhide, was this not built into rawhide yet?
Has there been a new livecd-tools build since the 20th? (answer: no)
I'll get a build before the devel freeze, but this is hardly critical enough on its own to have warranted special builds
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Closing out bug that's been in MODIFIED for a while.
