Description Will Woods 2007-02-04 17:30:43 UTC
While installing onto a system using a pre-existing reiserfs /home, anaconda
traces back because it can't find reiserfstune.

Traceback follows - full dump is attached.

Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 51, in execWithRedirect

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-02-05 21:21:22 UTC
We should make it so that we handle the tools for various filesystems not being
there better

Comment 3 David Cantrell 2007-02-06 16:08:35 UTC
reiserfstune should be there.  scripts/upd-instroot has reiserfs-utils in the
pile of packages to use to build the stage2 image.

Still, I agree with Jeremy, execWithRedirect (among others) could gracefully
handle a tool missing.

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2007-02-21 18:38:03 UTC
What are the exact install parameters here?  reiserfs on a /home partition, no
existing other installs or partitions?

Comment 5 Will Woods 2007-03-22 21:03:25 UTC
I believe there was an existing install on the disk that was being replaced with
F7t1, where /home was reiserfs and the other partitions were (probably) ext3 -
IIRC the user was attempting to install (not upgrade) but also wanted to
preserve /home.

Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2007-03-23 15:16:51 UTC
I'm unable to reproduce this today.  Perhaps there was some transient tree
weirdness that caused reiserfstune to not be in the image?

Comment 7 Will Woods 2007-03-23 15:25:46 UTC
Possibly. Does reiserfstune live in initrd or stage2? We should compare the
current rawhide one to the F7t1 one and see if the location (or presence) of the
file has changed.

Comment 8 Chris Lumens 2007-03-23 16:01:48 UTC
Looks like it was left out of the minstg2.img on Test 1, but it's in the images
now.  Closing out.

Comment 9 Jesse Keating 2007-03-23 19:46:17 UTC
Just to clarify, the reiserfs tools didn't make the manifest for Test1 (and
possibly test2).  Twas a pungi bug.
