Description Tom Rini 2021-04-08 19:00:16 UTC
Description of problem:

The arm-image-installer script uses "xzcat" to decompress the xz file passed with --image but does not depend on xz being installed

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


How reproducible:

arm-image-installer --image=Fedora-Rawhide.xz --target=Bananapi --media=/dev/mmcblk0

Without "xz" installed on the system.

Actual results:

/usr/bin/arm-image-installer: line 313: xzcat: command not found
0+0 records in
0+0 records out
0 bytes copied, 3.9945e-05 s, 0.0 kB/s
= Writing image complete!

Comment 1 Tom Rini 2021-04-08 20:07:05 UTC
There is also a missing dependency on libselinux-utils, to provide getenforce which is called to see if relabeling is required.  Since both of these missing deps are rather common a Fedora install, I should note that my use case is "I don't have Fedora installed, let me throw it in a container so I can put Fedora on some ARM SBCs I have handy".

And xfsprogs if you're using the Server image.
