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

Hello All,

To finish this thread:
Due to this bug, I believe that Pungi/Anaconda is not ready yet for
building a really custom installation CD, derived from Fedora 6 and
custom repositories. It took me a lot of time and finally I had to
give it up.

I want to thank the people that helped me so far for their efforts.
Unfortunately I am not going to be using it any further.

Kind Regards,

Remy Bohmer

Hello Jesse,

What you mention is exactly what I want, except my product is not
named Fedora, but something else...
I will summarise the facts here below, hope this clears something up.

> Are you putting packages into different directories under os/ ?
No, the /os/ is an intermediate buildresult of what pungi (with
anaconda) is doing. I am not modifying it in any way. My goal is to
use as many standard tooling as possible, without the need for me to
modify the tools. (Except if there is a need for a bugfix)

So, only 1 directory with packages is there in /os/myproduct, not 2.

But after building the /os directory pungi calls at some point
pkgorder and this one introduces a problem while building the
os-disc1/myproduct directory.
I can reproduce it easily while just running pkgorder on the /os tree
that is generated by pungi, as you earlier suggested.

During build and debugging pkgorder, I have seen that
processTransaction() searches for the relative path of a package. This
path is mostly called os/Myproduct (Uppercase-M) instead of
os/myproduct. (Lowercase-M) os/Myproduct (Uppercase-M) does not exist,
so the package cannot be found. (the lacking 631 packages) Some
packages are searched in os/myproduct (lowercase-M), and these are
found correctly. (the 31 I had)
Due to a bug in pkgorder this 'file-not-found' issue is not visible to
the outside world. I have a patch for this, so that this it is at
least visible that this happens.

As a test, I have renamed the product_name to Myproduct (Uppercase-M).
If I do that I end up with 631 packages in /os-disc1, lacking the 31 I
had while using the lowercase M.

The packages that are searched for, in the wrong directory, can come
from any repo, i.e. fc6-dvd, fc6-updates, or my own custom repo, but
always the same packages go wrong.

> Are you getting multiple product dirs somehow?
I am thus NOT getting multiple product dirs in /os-disc1. It is not a
destination (/os-disc1) problem but a package gathering problem from

Do you have any idea how the relative-paths are resolved from the /os
I am certain that the cause is there somewhere, but I already spent 2
days debugging pkgorder with pdb, and it does not bring me any closer
the root cause :-((
I do not understand the relation to yum/package-dictionaries etc.
Notice that I have verified that dependency resolving works fine...

I really hope you can help me on this...

Kind Regards,
