Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 58945
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:39:14 EDT
Description of Problem:
if you start qmkbootdisk as normal user you may think it actually created a bootdisk
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch qmkbootdisk as user
2. select device and kernel
3. click ok
you don't get any boot disk and no error messages or warnings at all
either a request for root password (like many other tools) or a message saying
the bootdisk couldn't be created
if you start qmkbootdisk in a shell you actually get a "Cannot find root
partition in /etc/fstab" message. What if you start it from Gnome/KDE panel?
there's no warning there... just an 100% ok which makes you think the floppy is
I guess this is due to the use of labels rather than devices in fstab.
Probably it should be linked against console-helper.
I'm not sure about it, since if you run it in a root shell it does exactly what
it needs console-helper.It's fixed in rawhide.
