Re: pungi ignores a lot of RPMs when building CD image

Hello All,

I thought I got it...  But this is not true... I have now the problem
reversed :-(((

By changing the first letter of the product name to a capital, the
result was that I have now a CD image of 331 packages, where I need
362. Before this change, I had 31 packages...

The problem is still pkgorder, at the same location as mentioned below.

For some reason pkgorder is really stubborn, and still mixes up the
productname by changing the first letter of several packages. It does
not matter where the packages come from, either from the orignal
FC6-DVD , or from the FC6-Updates repo, or from my custom repo. Even
if I build without my own repo, does not matter.
Notice that a bug in pkgorder does not even tell anybody if it can
find a package at all, it just continuous, resulting in an incomplete

So, does anyone know how the location of a package is determined in
pkgorder? (I mean the relative path inside a repo, with the product

It does NOT read it from Pungi configuration file (Tried to change it
completely, no result)
Tried to change the product name on the commandline of pkgorder -> no
result either...

So, nowhere in my tree I can find the wrong productname, and neither
does any change of any product_name setting help.

I really hope, someone can help me out here... I am starting to get
quite desperate about these tools... :-((

Hello All,

I got it! but, it is very strange... ;-))

I debugged the pkgorder script and found the following:
* At the routine 'processTransaction()' the complete lists of
dependencies is available, then it calls the routine
printMatchingPkgs() to print the packages to standard, after it has
checked that they are available.
* The filemask that is passed to printMatchingPkgs() through
'fpattern', is build up as follows: <os-dir>/Product/package*. Where
Product starts with a capital, but my product_name in the pungi
configuration does NOT star with a capital. So, the product-dir in the
os-dir does not start with a capital. So, no dependency files can be
found, leaving a os-disc1 with just a few files in it...

I searched through the entire tree several times, but nowhere I have
listed the productname with a capital, so this capital must be
introduced by the tooling itself ! (Fedora also starts with a
capital... Redhat also, and probably other distros using anaconda

So, to be able to build a customised CD, you must use a product_name
in Pungi that starts with a capital. I have changed this in my build
environment and now it works!

I believe the problem is introduced by collecting the dependencies in
the routine addGroups() -> ds.ResolveDeps() in the pkgorder script.

For me it is going to deep in the external tooling, which I do not
fully understand yet how they work. Maybe someone else recognises this
phenomenon and can pick it up from here?
Or if someone can give me some tips on this, I can look further into it...

Kind Regards,

Remy Bohmer
