Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 815275
path and name of squashfs.img should be consistent across all architectures.
Last modified: 2015-04-29 19:48:06 EDT
Description of problem:
We would like to see consistent paths and names to squashfs.img across architectures. The current situation is, that on all architectures except s390x the path is: LiveOS/squashfs.img
on s390x is: images/install.img
This is causing some visible errors and more will come. For example in dracut/anaconda-netroot.sh file there's hardcoded "LiveOS/squashfs.img" path.
info "anaconda fetching installer from $repo"
treeinfo=$(fetch_url $repo/.treeinfo) && \
stage2=$(config_get stage2 mainimage < $treeinfo)
if [ -z "$stage2" ]; then
warn "can't find installer mainimage path in .treeinfo"
runtime=$(fetch_url $repo/$stage2) && /sbin/dmsquash-live-root $runtime
Please reconsider which is better. We would like to see it on all architectures in following folder: images/install.img ( bug 782108 ), but opposite is also fine.
This will indeed require some other changes in code.
For f17 we should change the s390 path to LiveOS/squashfs.img and reevaluate the paths for F18.
I don't want to make a change like this at this point in a Fedora release.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Need to re-examine this for the future. dracut can now reportedly handle other locations. We need to think about the list of tools that this will affect.
I think we can do this for F23.
