Subject: livecd support (mostly) done
Date: Fri, 09 Jan 2004 22:26:34 -0700
Hi guys,

livecd-stage3 in catalyst is now completed (will commit in a minute.) I
have one last thing to add -- a "livecd-stage3/prune" variable support
for the spec file, and of course documentation.

But right now I am getting held up by a kernel bug. I can mount a
loopback fs, and try to copy files to it. I get a "no space left on
device." I can then repeat the exact same cp command, and a few seconds
later it works. Seems to be some weird synchronization bug in the
kernel. I'm using gentoo-dev-sources-2.6.0 and I'm wondering if anyone
has experienced anything similar. This is on amd64 but the loopback code
in the kernel should be arch-independent.

With this bug, sometimes the livecd-stage3 build works, and other times
it will abort with "no space left on device." Not pleasant :/

Regards,

Daniel
