Hi folks, and welcome to the Fedora 20 Beta blocker bug news...
The bad news is that we're still some way from a viable Beta RC. We need
work on several blockers, all of which is outlined below. I'll start
with bugs that need work from developers; QA folks, there are tasks for
us listed later on.
Accepted blockers - anaconda and python-blivet
- "installer fails
to apply lower bound to resize requests in custom spoke" - this bug has
been open for a while and needs a fix from anaconda team, when they have
- "Apple Mac EFI:
you have not created a bootloader stage1 target device" - this bug
breaks the most common installation scenarios for Apple systems (guided
install alongside an existing OS X install). bcl has been working on
fixing it: back in September he posted an initial patch, then decided
that it was not sufficient -
There is no information since then that I can find.
Cannot remove non-leaf device 'btrfs.14'" - this is a crasher with
certain existing btrfs volumes. dlehman posted a plan on how to fix it,
but there is no proposed patch that I can find.
Accepted blockers - other
- "DVD is
oversized (larger than 4.7 GB)" (spin-kickstarts, comps, pungi) - a fix
for this was scheduled for TC3, but it caused the DVD compose to break,
and was backed out to produce a testable TC4. TC5 continued without the
problematic fix (and hence is still over-size). AIUI, dgilmore was
supposed to be looking into the compose issue, but I believe he is now
on vacation, so we may need someone else to step in: CCing nirik and
- "rootfs on thinp
not found, startup failure" (dracut) - an update containing a fix for
this has been submitted -
but one reliable tester has reported that it breaks boot on their
system, so further developer work may be required here, harald:
- "F20 Beta TC1
ARM disk images unable to find root filesystem" (dracut) - this bug is
marked as an unresolved blocker but has in fact been worked around
since, I believe, TC2. We can probably ship Beta with the workaround,
and this may just need some Bugzilla Bureaucracy rather than developer
attention at this point.
treats a disk with partially corrupt GPT as having no partition at
all" (anaconda) - this looks like it could well be accepted as a
blocker, so developer attention would be appreciated.
- "Upgrade to f20
fails because of deltarpms" (fedup) - Will posted a proposed fix for
informal testing; Will, one of the reporters has confirmed the fix is
good, so can you please submit an update? Thanks!
Bugs requiring QA attention
- "Anaconda uses
LVM when Standard Partition is selected in text mode" (anaconda) - this
bug has been verified fixed by the update
, but that update needs more karma to go stable. That is the build that is in TC5, so
anyone who's tested TC5 and found it generally OK (no worse than previous builds) can
+1 the update: please do!
"devicetree.py:1293:handleVgLvs:DeviceTreeError: failed to look up thin
pool" (python-blivet) - this is believed to be fixed by the
update (and hence in TC5). We need to verify the fix and add karma to the update so it can
be pushed stable and the bug closed.
factories need to set a default name if empty name given for defined
device" - exactly the same as 1013800: this should be fixed in TC5,
please confirm the fix and up-karma the update.
This has been your blocker bug news, folks - if everyone can help out
with fixing the remaining issues and testing the anaconda/blivet update,
that'd be a great help. Thanks!
