Description Richard W.M. Jones 2010-08-31 04:10:08 EDT
Description of problem:

To support the new ext2/disk-based appliance in rebased libguestfs
(bug 613593) we require febootstrap >= 2.9.

This is a backwards-compatible change over the current version (2.7), which
adds the ability to build ext2-based appliances and fixes a couple of minor
bugs elsewhere.

Comment 5 Richard W.M. Jones 2010-11-26 04:35:04 EST
Setting back to ASSIGNED.  We found a bug in febootstrap 2.10
yesterday to do with creating large directories.  Fixed upstream
in this commit:
We should rebase to 2.11 which includes this fix.

libguestfs now requires febootstrap >= 2.11, and we found no regression caused by this rebase. Moving to VERIFIED.
