Is the eject binary in the installtree?
Comment 3 John Reiser 2011-07-20 10:48:39 EDT
Re-run fails today, bug #723538 [pungi].

Using the last DVD which did compose [July 14 ??], it looks like there is no 'eject', but the situation is complicated:
$ cd $DVD/isolinux
$ file initrd.img
initrd.img: XZ compressed data
$ xz --decompress -c initrd.ing >/tmp/initrd
xz: initrd.img: Compressed data is corrupt
$ file /tmp/initrd
/tmp/initrd: ASCII cpio archive (SVR4 with no CRC)
$ cpio --list </tmp/initrd | grep eject
20486 blocks  ## no 'eject'
So the first part of initrd.img is an XZ compressed output of a CPIO archive, and the CPIO archive contains no 'eject'.

[Evidently initrd.img is a "complicated" file.  Where are the utilities that know how to diagnose it?]
Comment 4 Martin Gracik 2011-07-21 04:31:12 EDT
The new initrd is complicated. It's a dracut initramfs glued together with our own xz initrd.

But what I meant is if the eject binary could be found in the yumroot directory in pungi's work directory. I guess you removed it in the meantime, so we just have to wait until the pungi bug gets fixed.
Comment 5 Martin Gracik 2011-07-26 04:11:32 EDT
Do you still get this error? Looks like other people don't hit it.
Comment 6 John Reiser 2011-07-26 10:22:51 EDT
pungi has been aborting earlier, I haven't gotten to 'eject' in a week.  Today pyorbit cannot be found.  (That's after fixing the is_beta vs. isfinal rewrite.)  Before today, there was a conflict between netxen-firmware and linux-firmware over file /usr/lib/libphan.fw.  (The string "netxen-firmware" appears nowhere except in /var/cache/pungi/ourtree/{*.sqlite, <<others>>}.)
