An update that has 5 recommended fixes can now be installed.
This update for python-kiwi fixes the following issues:
Update from version 9.21.7 to version 9.21.23
- Do not exclude filesystem folders in OCI images. (bsc#1176129)
This commit does not exclude filesystem folders during the rsync call in OCI images. It has been noted that including an empty /dev folder does not hurt and it can eventually help to work around some limitations of container related tools such as buildah.
- Fix/Refactor s390 support (bsc#1170863, bsc#1176977, bsc#1170863,bsc#1175729, bsc#1176134)
- On s390 the boot process is based on zipl which boots into an initrd from which a userspace grub process is started to support the grub capabilities. The implementation of this concept is provided via the grub2-s390x-emu package. Once installed the setup of the bootloader is done via the grub2-mkconfig and grub2-install commands and therefore from a caller perspective the same as with any other grub2 setup process. For kiwi this means no extra zipl bootloader target code is needed. Therefore this commit deletes the zipl setup from kiwi and puts on the standard grub2 process.
- To support different targettypes the grub2-s390x-emu provided zipl template must be adapted. Parts of the former zipl bootloader setup therefore now applies to an update of the zipl2grub template file
- Support for CDL/LDL DASD targets has been disabled in the schema When testing 4k devices and a respective zipl2grub template setup for CDL/LDL targettype it has turned out that grub2-install is not able to run on such a device. My assumption is that the device code in grub2-install does not work for 4k devices with an fdasd created partition table. As this needs further investigations and most probably adaptions on the grub toolchain for s390, we disabled the setup of these modes for now. emulated DASD (FBA) and SCSI targets stays supported.
- Fix compat link for rpmdb location Fix the symlink creation for `/var/lib/rpm`. More specific or derived container images in which the base root tree already included the `/var/lib/rpm` the link, the `ln` command was creating a symlink inside the `/var/lib/rpm` folder given that it was following the already existing symlink. Adding the `--no-target-directory` force `ln` command to treat `/var/lib/rpm` path as the fully qualified symlink name.
- Fixed s390/sle15 Virtual disk integration test The integration test used FBA mode as target. As the target is expected to be KVM this is the wrong setting. SCSI should be used instead.
- Support dynamic linux/linuxefi in any case Instead of restricting the dynamic linux vs. linuxefi setup to a specific grub version, support this setup for any version of grub.
