Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 83029
buildinstall fails after update to kernel 2.4.18-19.7.x
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:50:27 EDT
Description of problem:
When rebuiling install disk images with recommended RH patches (in particular
kernel-BOOT-2.4.18-19.7.x), the "cdboot.img" contents is too large to fit:
buildinstall fails with "No space left on device".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-runtime-7.3.7
Steps to Reproduce:
1._ build an installation root (in ./i386).
2._ replace packages in the i386/RedHat/RPMS and i386/SRPMS directories by
RedHat 7.3 updated packages (up to Jan 13, 2003).
3.$ export PYTHONDIR=/usr/lib/anaconda
4.$ export PATH="$PATH:/usr/lib/anaconda-runtime"
buildinstall --pkgorder pkgorder.txt --comp dist-7.3 --version 7.3 i386
Actual Results: This fails while building "cdroot.img" with error "No space
left on device" (files from update are too large for the 2880k disk image).
Expected Results: Successful completion of "buildinstall".
Unfortunately, we're not psychic and so can't take into account future growths
of the kernel. Rebuilds of the installation tree like this isn't supported --
to get it to work, you'll have to edit mk-images.i386 in anaconda to change the
modules which get sucked in for various cases.
