Re: [rdo-list] tripleo centos7 images missing linux-firmware package

Thanks!  I've been using guestmount + chroot to achieve the same :)

How do I install linux-firmware in the IPA ramdisk?  I do not think that libguestfs tools work with these and if I gunzip -c | cpio -id and then re-assemble, the image is not working anymore (kernel crashes).

Hi Ilja,

Whilst it doesn't help fix the underlying issue, as a workaround you can use virt-customize to add this package in prior to uploading the overcloud image which is a fairly trivial task.


$ virt-customize -a overcloud-full.qcow2 --install linux-firmware


$ openstack overcloud image upload --update-existing

This article is a good reference although it requires a Red Hat
