    F17 boxgrinder-meta appliance doesn't seem to be able to grind an F17 boxgrinder-meta appliance

    Tony Sweeney Newbie

      Hi,

       

           I finally got my Jenkins boxgrinder-meta appliance to build.  It's a lightly modified version of the stock appliance, with Java and a Jenkins user added, and some minor tweaks to get the privilege escalation working.  The appliance file is as follows:

       

      name: %JOB_NAME%

      summary: Jenkins Boxgrinder slave instance

      version: %BUILD_NUMBER%

      release: 0

      hardware:

        memory: 1024

        partitions:

          "/":

            size: 10

      appliances:

        - boxgrinder-meta

      packages:

        - java-1.7.0-openjdk

      files:

        "/":

          - etc/sudoers.d/jenkins

          - home/jenkins/.ssh/authorized_keys

          - tmp/boxgrinder.sed

      post:

        base:

          - chown root:root /etc/sudoers.d/jenkins

          - chmod 440 /etc/sudoers.d/jenkins

          - useradd jenkins

          - chown -R jenkins:jenkins /home/jenkins

          - chmod 700 /home/jenkins/.ssh

          - chmod 600 /home/jenkins/.ssh/authorized_keys

          - sed -i -f /tmp/boxgrinder.sed /usr/share/gems/gems/boxgrinder-build-0.10.4/bin/boxgrinder-build

       

      This builds fine on an older F15 boxgrinder-meta version 0.10.2 node in our own datacenter (The build system substitues in values for the things that look like DOS variables).   The freshly ground appliance has box-grinder-build version 0.10.4.  I have started an instance of this appliance in ec2 and successfully attached it to our Jenkins cluster.  In order to validate it, I tried building a vanilla boxgrinder-meta appliance (appliance files from GitHub), and it fails with the following error:

      I searched the web for similar errors and all I could find was this from the libguestfs mailing list last January:

       

      https://www.redhat.com/archives/libguestfs/2013-January/msg00079.html

       

      The libguestfs people seem to think that this is a boxgrinder bug.

       

      The file /etc/selinux/config file on my appliance exists and has SELINUX=disabled

       

      I'm happy to attach any further files to help diagnose the problem.

          I mounted the partially built appliance disk image, and the /etc/sysconfig/selinux file in the target file system there is as follows:

           

          [root@localhost ~]# cd /mnt/boxgrinder-meta

          [root@localhost boxgrinder-meta]# cat etc/sysconfig/selinux

          # This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.

          # SELINUX= can take one of these three values:

          #       enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.

          #       permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.

          #       disabled - SELinux is fully disabled.

          SELINUX=permissive

          # SELINUXTYPE= type of policy in use. Possible values are:

          #       targeted - Only targeted network daemons are protected.

          #       strict - Full SELinux protection.

          SELINUXTYPE=targeted

            So, I loaded the augeas command line tool on both the F15 boxgrinder-meta in our data center and on the F17 node in AWS, and the problem seems to be that /etc/sysconfig/selinux is no longer in the Shellvars lens in the F17 version.

             

            F15:

            [root@boxgrinder2 ~]# augtool

            augtool> print /augeas/load//incl[. = '/etc/sysconfig/selinux']

            /augeas/load/Shellvars/incl[15] = "/etc/sysconfig/selinux"

            augtool>

             

            F17:

            augtool> print /augeas/load//incl[. = '/etc/sysconfig/selinux']

            augtool>

             

            So, F15 can grind an F17 appliance, but F17 can't.

              It turns out that on both F15 and F17, the file /etc/sysconfig/selinux is in fact a symbolic link:

               

              [root@boxgrinder2 ~]# ls -li /etc/selinux/config /etc/sysconfig/selinux

              400501 -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 449 Feb 17  2012 /etc/selinux/config

              400502 lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root  17 Feb 17  2012 /etc/sysconfig/selinux -> ../selinux/config

              [root@boxgrinder2 ~]#

               

              This appears to also be true on CentOS5 and CentOS6 and presumably other headgear distros

               

              The Augeas Shellvars lens in F15 includes /etc/sysconfig/selinux, whereas the F17 version has only /etc/selinux/config

               

              If I change the three occurrences of etc/sysconfig/selinux to etc/selinux/config in /usr/share/gems/gems/boxgrinder-build-0.10.4/lib/boxgrinder-build/helpers/guestfs-helper.rb, then the (hacked) F17 boxgrinder-meta appliance can correctly build an F17 boxgrinder-meta appliance.  This hack would, however, fail if run on F15, with the same problem I was experiencing earlier.
