LIN6-2551 : Get some errors when booting xeon+cgl+glibc-cgl from iso with wr-installer

Created: Mar 5, 2013    Updated: Apr 28, 2018
Resolved Date: Apr 17, 2018
Previous ID: LIN5-4427
Found In Version: 6.0
Severity: Standard
Applicable for: Wind River Linux 6
Component/s: Build & Config


Problem Description
Try to boot intel-xeon-core+cgl+glibc-cgl from the ISO image which is built with target installer feature.

The 1st problem:
Got some errors when booting from iso image. Most of the errors were caused by "Read-only file system".
See attached screenshots: xeon-installer-iso-boot-log1.png  xeon-installer-iso-boot-log2.png 

The 2nd problem:
Failed to install RPMs to target disk.
It reported do_rootfs failed.
See attached screenshot: xeon-iso-install-rpm.JPG

Expected Behavior
Passed to boot from iso and install wrlinux to target disk.

Observed Behavior
1, some errors when booting iso
2, failed to install RPM to target disk


Misc Info 


Use glibc-small wr-installer image which points to previously built CGL image. This is documented in the README for the wr-installer layer

Steps to Reproduce

step 1; configure the project
/wrlinux-5/wrlinux/configure --enable-board=intel-xeon-core --enable-kernel=cgl --enable-rootfs=glibc-cgl --enable-parallel-pkgbuilds=15 --enable-jobs=15 --with-sstate-dir=/buildarea/build/lx32-prjs/intel-xeon-core/bitbake_build/sstate-cache --enable-target-installer=yes --with-rcpl-version=auto

step 2; make fs
Get ISO image: 
$ ls export/*.iso

step 3; boot with kvm
sudo kvm -cdrom /path/to/intel-xeon-core-glibc-cgl-cgl-dist.iso -hda hd0.vdisk -m 512

OR boot from real target:
step 4; burn the iso to DVD or USB disk.
Assume USB disk is /dev/sdc:
dd if=/path/to/intel-xeon-core-glibc-cgl-cgl-dist.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=1M

step 5; boot from USB device
Edit boot argument in GRUB, append "selinux=0 enforcing=0" for kernel cmdline.
There are some errors caused by "Read-only file system" when booting from ISO.

step 6; choose a lock disk to install wrlinux
For example: /dev/sdb
And there is critical error when installing RPMs to target disk.
