Comment 1 Josef Komenda 2002-08-19 18:46:28 UTC
The current iso build process is that on Zealot.devel.redhat.com I run the

cd /var/spool/up2date/

rm -f *.rpm

rm -f *.hdr

rm -f /tmp/installer/RPMS/*.rpm
(this to clear out any previous rpms)

up2date -d --nosig apache apache-devel mod_perl `up2date --showall
--channel=redhat-rhn-satellite-i386-7.2 | sed 's/-[^-]*-[^-]*$//' | grep -v tk`

cp *.rpm /tmp/installer/RPMS/

cd /tmp/

rm -rf satmake/

scp -r root@dhcp59-208.rdu.redhat.com:/home/jkomenda/cvs/rhn/satellite/install/
(this after running a 'cvs up' in my local cvs/rhn/satellite/install/)

cd satmake/

make clean && make && make install


Please advise as to how I should modify this process in accord with the changes
to /satellite/install/ in cvs. 

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 2002-08-21 06:14:34 UTC
The process you are using to build an installable image has changed.

Basically right now what you need to do is way simper:

1. make sure you   have an updated CVS checkout of the rhn tree (rhn/build and
rhn/satellite in particular). Use "cvs up -d -P" to make sure

2. cd rhn/satellite
3. make iso

From the output of the make file you should get enough detail to figure out
where the tree and iso images are. You should be able then to start testing the
installer from this new tree...

Comment 3 Josef Komenda 2002-08-21 15:33:28 UTC
I updated my cvs and ran 'make iso' from the ~/cvs/rhn/satellite directory. It
seemed to run smoothly, however, I have grave doubts about the installer running
correctly, as it is only 17M, as opposed to the previous versions, which came in
at 55M. 

Testing the installer on sat-inst.webdev-colo comfirms this:
  Unresolved rpm dependencies:
  Package python-popt-0.9.0-4.7.2 conflicts with rpm-python < 4.0.4

Back over to solve the dependencies, updated packages paradox.
