Description Jan Kratochvil 2010-05-27 11:55:52 UTC
Description of problem:
There is a condition no longer compatible with F13 bash aborting the operation.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Try to build biarch USB flash using:

Actual results:
Error finding block device of /dev/  Aborting!

Expected results:
built image

Additional info:
The condition
    if [[ "$DEV" =~ "/dev/loop*" ]]; then
was already wrong before as the right side is a regex, not a shell wildcard pattern.  Due to the bash change described in Bug 558537 (not a bug) this pattern no longer works with F13 bash.  IMO the correct one is:
    if [[ $DEV =~ ^/dev/loop ]]; then

It still does not work, though:
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
But this will be some different problem for a different Bug.

Should I continue filing the fixes here when they are being ignored?
