Description Richard W.M. Jones 2010-06-02 13:28:12 UTC
Description of problem:

If you edit appliance/supermin.d/hostfiles by hand, and if this leaves
a backup file, then febootstrap-supermin-helper will read the backup
file, thus creating an extra large initramfs.  The helper program should
ignore dot files and backup files like '.*' and '*~' and others.

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

febootstrap 2.7

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2010-07-30 11:47:09 UTC

Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2010-09-03 07:25:34 UTC
Hidden files were already ignored.

febootstrap 2.9 now also ignores backup files.;a=commitdiff;h=7d7d6e5814475dc4f97f9af8965462c8865e1ae1
