FTBFS: parted's t9050-partition-table-types.sh test that worked last month now fails
Last modified: 2012-04-11 23:37:10 EDT
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

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.
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
PARTED_SECTOR_SIZE=1024 parted -s f p
