Description Netbulae 2012-05-07 19:18:21 EDT
Description of problem:

I followed all the steps from the wiki (http://www.ovirt.org/wiki/Node_Building) to compile the node iso from git. But it fails at the very last step :-( 

I tried many different options but all the time I get the error:

"imgcreate.errors.CreatorError: No packages or groups specified"

ovirt-node-iso]# make iso publish
rm -f *.ks
Node Creator script is:  ~/ovirt-node/recipe/node-creator
cp ~/ovirt-node/recipe/*.ks .
rm -f version.ks
( \
    echo "PRODUCT='"oVirt Node Hypervisor"'" ;\
    echo "PRODUCT_SHORT='"oVirt Node Hypervisor"'" ;\
    echo "PACKAGE=ovirt-node-iso" ;\
    echo "VERSION=2.3.0" ;\
    echo "RELEASE=999.02.fc16" ;\
) > version.ks
ksflatten -c ovirt-node-image.ks -o ovirt-node-iso.ks
~/ovirt-node/recipe/node-creator ovirt-node-iso.ks

Tried it on a fresh install off Fedora 16 and the process is fine. So I think it has to do with my Fedora 17 install.
Comment 2 Joey Boggs 2012-05-31 20:30:36 EDT
Looks like ksflatten isn't working correctly in F17. ksflatten on ovirt-node-iso.ks results in %include's not be flattend to inside a single kickstart file.
Comment 3 Joey Boggs 2012-05-31 21:20:43 EDT
workaround for now is to install older pykickstart version, bz submitted for pykickstart

Comment 4 Mike Burns 2012-06-14 09:31:58 EDT
No fix needed in ovirt-node, just in pykickstart
