Description Bruno Wolff III 2011-02-18 15:32:48 UTC
Description of problem:
I think starting with livecd-tools 15.4 I have been getting the following:
livecd-iso-to-disk --resetmbr --format Fedora-Education-Remix.iso /dev/sdd
Verifying image...
/spare/livegames/Fedora-Education-Remix.iso:   f1a278f1683a1a3a8fdb8d6e4617d0ff

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This particular example is with what could be 16.1, but I saw the same message with 15.4 (both the compose and livecd-iso-disk were from 15.4).

How reproducible:
Seems to happen all of the time based on small sample set. I don't know if it is in the compose or the check where the problem happens at this point.

Steps to Reproduce:

I check some old images and they show fail now, whereas I am pretty sure they showed pass in the past. So this might just be a livecd-iso-to-disk problem.
Next I'll try to test this by reverting.

Comment 2 Bruno Wolff III 2011-02-18 16:08:27 UTC
I went back to 15.3 and so the same problem, so maybe something else changed. As I am pretty sure I wasn't seeing this previously with 15.3.

Comment 3 Brian Lane 2011-02-18 17:07:30 UTC
I did several installs with F13, F14, F15 TC2 images yesterday and had no failures that I noticed. I did Live and DVD media using v16.1 and just tried them again to be double sure. I suspect your images may be bad.

Per 2011-02-18 Alpha blocker meeting -

#agreed 678609 - not accepted as Alpha blocker or NTH.  Candidate for Common_F15_Bugs or post-Alpha update

This may be related to bug 692135 which suggests it may be limited to i386 basearch.
