Description Brendan Conoboy 2012-03-05 23:47:45 EST
Description of problem:

Something has happened in the last month that prevents parted-3.0-7.fc17.src.rpm from building successfully any longer.  It was initially noticed on ARM, but also FTBFS on x86_64.

From mock's build.log:

+ parted -s f mklabel pc98
Backtrace has 8 calls on stack:

+ fail=1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Happens on Fedora 17 buildroots on x86_64, armv5tel, and armv7hl.  Since the exact same test worked a month ago it is presumably some other component to blame.  Perhaps /usr move?  Reason is unclear.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. /usr/bin/mock -r fedora-17-x86_64 parted-3.0-7.fc17.src.rpm 
2. Observe the failure in build.log.
Comment 1 Brian Lane 2012-03-14 14:38:09 EDT
This is due to a change in mkswap, it no longer removes the bootloader part of the disk. This helps reveal another assert problem in the partition reading code, this time in mac.c -- we really shouldn't traceback on a bad partition table, especially when doing a mklabel.

reproduce it with:

PARTED_SECTOR_SIZE=1024 parted -s f mklabel mac
mkswap f
PARTED_SECTOR_SIZE=1024 parted -s f p

I can confirm that parted-3.0.8.fc17 built successfully.  Assuming this is also in rawhide, we're all done.  Thanks!
