Description Prarit Bhargava 2005-06-29 17:18:01 UTC
Description of problem: 
When attempting to build the installation, buildinstall fails to build images 
because of a script error in mk-images. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):  
How reproducible: 100% 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.  Run pkgorder 
2.  Run genhdlist 
3.  Run buildinstall 
Actual results: 
buildinstall fails with: 
cannot find package kernel-BOOT in path /home/ia64/RedHat/RPMS 
kernel-BOOT does not exist for ia64 -- using kernel package 
unpacking /home/ia64/RedHat/RPMS/kernel-2.6.11-1.1381_FC5.ia64.rpm.ia64 
Wrote /tmp/makebootdisk.initrdimage.17216 (6652k compressed) 
mkdosfs: Need intended size with -C. 
Usage: mount -V                 : print version 
       mount -h                 : print this help 
       mount                    : list mounted filesystems 
       mount -l                 : idem, including volume labels 
So far the informational part. Next the mounting. 
The command is `mount [-t fstype] something somewhere'. 
Details found in /etc/fstab may be omitted. 
       mount -a [-t|-O] ...     : mount all stuff from /etc/fstab 
       mount device             : mount device at the known place 
       mount directory          : mount known device here 
       mount -t type dev dir    : ordinary mount command 
Note that one does not really mount a device, one mounts 
a filesystem (of the given type) found on the device. 
One can also mount an already visible directory tree elsewhere: 
       mount --bind olddir newdir 
or move a subtree: 
       mount --move olddir newdir 
A device can be given by name, say /dev/hda1 or /dev/cdrom, 
or by label, using  -L label  or by uuid, using  -U uuid . 
Other options: [-nfFrsvw] [-o options] [-p passwdfd]. 
For many more details, say  man 8 mount . 
umount: /tmp/makebootdisk.tree.17216: not mounted 
mv: missing file argument 
Try `mv --help' for more information.

Expected results: 
buildinstall builds installation correctly. 
Additional info: Discussed with Jeremy Katz, and I am working on a solution & 
patch now.  Jeremy has suggested sending this patch to anaconda-devel.
