Cloud work in last week (20150921)

Last week Dusty started looking into few bugs related to cloud base image. His first work was on the locale issues coming up in the base image. If you login to the system, you will see many warnings like:

-bash: warning: setlocale: LC_CTYPE: cannot change locale (en_US.UTF-8): No such file or directory
-bash: warning: setlocale: LC_COLLATE: cannot change locale (en_US.UTF-8): No such file or directory
-bash: warning: setlocale: LC_MESSAGES: cannot change locale (en_US.UTF-8): No such file or directory
-bash: warning: setlocale: LC_NUMERIC: cannot change locale (en_US.UTF-8): No such file or directory
-bash: warning: setlocale: LC_TIME: cannot change locale (en_US.UTF-8): No such file or directory

Last Monday I tested the patch locally first, and then pushed it to the spin-kickstarts . His next work was related to the cloud-base-vagrant image, where we removed extlinux, and used grub for booting, you can view the commit here.

I also worked on broken i386 cloud image, it was not getting built for last few weeks. While trying to build the last known broken kickstart locally, I found the dracut was on a loop, it never went to the next stage. With the help Ian McLeod, the amazing upstream author of Imagefactory, we chased down the issue in #anaconda, and Kevin (nirik) confirmed that Oz requires more RAM to build the i386 image. We tested that locally, Dennis will update the koji builders to get the issue fixed. If you are trying to build the i386 version of the Cloud image locally, remember to increase libvirt memory in /etc/oz/oz.cfg Rest of my time mostly went on tunir and autocloud project. There will be few more blog posts in coming days on them.
