Description Abhishek Singh 2012-04-19 06:36:36 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm using livecd-tool package (version 16.11-1.fc16.x86_64) on a Fedora 16 machine. Whenever I use livecd-iso-to-disk with --format --msdos --reset-mbr parameters, I get a "/usr/bin/livecd-iso-to-disk: line 1092: [: too many arguments". But the script continues to work despite the error. The script exits with an exit code of "1".

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

How reproducible:
Every time you run the script with --format --msdos --reset-mbr parameters

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run livecd-iso-to-disk command with --format --msdos --reset-mbr parameters
Actual results:
Throws a "/usr/bin/livecd-iso-to-disk: line 1092: [: too many arguments" and exits with an exit code of 1.

Expected results:
Should not throw that error and should exit with an exit code of 0.

Additional info:
I'm using this on the http://xs-dev.laptop.org/xs/OLPC-School-Server-0.7-i386.iso ISO file and also on the ISO created by myself using pungi.
Comment 1 Brian Lane 2012-04-19 13:23:44 EDT
What is the full commandline that you used? The line in question is:

if [ -e $TGTMNT/$(basename "$SRC") ]; then

I can't reproduce it here.
Comment 2 Abhishek Singh 2012-04-19 23:15:57 EDT
The full commandline I used is:

livecd-iso-to-disk --format --msdos --reset-mbr /sandbox/nexs/OLPC\ School\ Server-0.7-i386.iso /dev/sdb1

The iso in question "OLPC\ School\ Server-0.7-i386.iso" is placed insided /sandbox/nexs directory and "/dev/sdb1" is the single partition on my USB stick of partition type Linux and formatted as vfat. The same problem happens even if it is formatted as ext4.
Comment 3 Abhishek Singh 2012-04-23 02:22:30 EDT
Found the cause of the error. It is because of the blank spaces in the file name of the source ISO file. When I renamed the file and removed spaces, it did work well.

Probably we need to take care for files with blank spaces in its name in the livecd-iso-to-disk script.
