Description David Shea 2014-06-23 15:07:36 UTC
Description of problem:
blkid -s TYPE -u noraid -o value squashfs.img

with util-linux-2.24.2-6.fc21.x86_64, this prints "squashfs" and returns 0. With util-linux-2.25-0.1.fc21.x64_64, it prints nothing and returns 2.

This is preventing rawhide install images from booting.

Comment 3 Karel Zak 2014-06-24 10:11:35 UTC
Fedora package will be fixed after update to util-linux v2.25-rc2.

Comment 4 Adam Williamson 2014-06-24 23:08:53 UTC
This is an automatic release blocker, per :

"Complete failure of any release-blocking TC/RC image to boot at all under any circumstance - "DOA" image (conditional failure is not an automatic blocker)"

marking as such.

Comment 6 Kevin Fenzi 2014-06-25 21:12:38 UTC
When is v2.25-rc2 due out?

If it's going to be a bit, can we backport the fix and at least get rawhide installs working again?

I'll be happy to go and do that later today...

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2014-06-25 22:05:04 UTC
