Description Peter Jones 2010-05-06 17:07:18 UTC
Description of problem: efiboot.img and boot.iso are being created with UEFI boot images that don't actually have any data in them:

sd 36:0:0:0: [sdb] 1957888 512-byte logical blocks: (1.00 GB/956 MiB)
sd 36:0:0:0: [sdb] Assuming drive cache: write through
 sdb: unknown partition table

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-13.39-1

Comment 1 James Laska 2010-05-06 18:09:37 UTC
Do we know what might be broken with the creating the UEFI boot images?  I gather we could extra compose logs if needed?

Comment 2 Peter Jones 2010-05-06 18:16:21 UTC
Well, I'm doing composes here in my attempts to fix the problem; I think it's related to tools like dmsetup and parted switching to making /dev/mapper nodes via the udev rules instead of doing it themselves. Thus, since we're in a chroot, and not bind mounting /dev (as I've always recommended we do in the past, but hey, nobody listens), udev does it at the wrong place.

There is a patch upstream that has been acked.  It just needs to be git am'd and cherry picked over to the F13 branch and then a new anaconda built.

Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2010-05-07 07:42:34 UTC
anaconda-13.41-1.fc13 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 13.

Comment 6 Jesse Keating 2010-05-11 00:05:02 UTC
This fix is in and has been confirmed.
