Description of problem:
A device created from a Fedora DVD ISO image with livecd-iso-to-disk won't run
if --skipcopy is given. The problem is that it also skips copying install.img,
which is necessary to run.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
WARNING: This will overwrite /dev/sdc1 and the MBR of /dev/sdc .
For my tests /dev/sdc was a USB flash drive. The --noverify skips the
checksumming of the ISO image.
1. livecd-iso-to-disk --reset-mbr --noverify --skipcopy Fedora-13-i386-DVD.iso /dev/sdc1
2. Boot from /dev/sdc .
3. Select rescue mode from the boot menu.
After the two language dialogs, an Error window pops up:
An error occured finding the installation image ...
Boot should proceed into rescue mode.
A simple patch is provided in an attachment. It also fixes another problem --
even with --skipcopy, the size checks assume the entire ISO image has to fit
on the device.
The same problem exists in livecd-tools-034-11.fc14 . I have not included
a patch for that; it looks like similar mods will fix it also.
(Mr. Bugzilla is being cranky again about attachments -- "You must choose
a method for determining the content type", so I'll add it in a comment.)
