kickstart file used with livemedia-creator

Description of problem:

livemedia-creator fails on installing fedora-logos from the updates repo.  After repeated attempts on different systems, this always fails on the same package.  If I remove the updates repo from the kickstart file, the image compose completes successfully.

I have installed the fedora-logos package with no errors on an existing F17 system, so the package appears to be good.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  livemedia-creator \
      --make-disk --no-virt --image-only --keep-image \
Actual results:
Installing fedora-logos-17.0.2-5.fc17.noarch (4 MB)
Fedora-related icons and pictures
anaconda 17.29 exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pyanaconda/cmdline.py", line 114, in messageWindow
    raise RuntimeError(errtxt)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pyanaconda/yuminstall.py", line 262, in callback
RuntimeError: (Error Installing Package)
A unpack error occurred when installing the fedora-logos package.  This could indicate errors when reading the installation media.  Installation cannot continue.

losetup: /dev/loop1: detach failed: Device or resource busy
2012-08-31 12:45:38,851: Install failed

Expected results:

  Package installs and the rest of the compose completes without error.

Additional info:

I used a specific fedora repo because I was seeing other errors when using these mirror lists:

Comment 1 D. Marlin 2012-09-20 14:52:28 EDT
I think I've found the problem.  Please note that the /boot partition in the example kickstart file is 'VFAT'.  The version of fedora-logos in updates adds the following lines:

  +pushd $RPM_BUILD_ROOT/boot/grub2/themes/system/
  +ln -s background.png fireworks.png

VFAT does not support symbolic links, so I believe this will cause the install to fail.  The original (F17 GA) version of fedora-logos did not include this symbolic link, so it installed without errors.
Comment 2 Brian Lane 2012-09-20 20:31:46 EDT
Which example kickstart? livemedia-creator's example has / and /boot on ext4. We shouldn't be using VFAT for anything other than the UEFI system partition, and that's mounted on /boot/efi/ not /boot.
Comment 3 D. Marlin 2012-09-20 21:54:03 EDT
The example kickstart file is the one attached to this BZ, and which may be used with livemedia-creator to reproduce the error.  It uses:

  part /boot --size 255 --fstype vfat --asprimary --label=boot

Some devices we install require a VFAT /boot partition (boot loader requirement).

It appears that this issue is due to a change in the fedora-logos package, and not specific to livemedia-creator, so I have moved it to that package.
Comment 4 Tom "spot" Callaway 2012-09-21 12:46:06 EDT
I suppose we'll do a cp -a instead of a symbolic link. Frickin frackin legacy filesystem trash.
Comment 5 D. Marlin 2012-09-21 12:51:52 EDT
Perhaps we could try the symbolic link, and only copy if it failed?

I'm sorry, but we're still stuck with some legacy file systems, at least for now.
Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2012-09-21 13:02:34 EDT
No, because the symlink happens during package generation time. It tries to write out the package manifest including symlinks, and fails on VFAT, but not in a fatal way (that file just doesn't get written out).
Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2012-09-21 13:50:56 EDT

Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2012-09-21 13:51:07 EDT

Comment 9 Matthew Garrett 2012-09-21 14:51:32 EDT
Not sure that changing this is a good idea - /boot has to be a POSIX filesystem, using vfat for it isn't supported.
