7.55. febootstrap

Updated febootstrap packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The febootstrap packages provide a tool to create a basic Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Fedora file system, and build initramfs (initrd.img) or file system images.

Bug Fix

The "febootstrap-supermin-helper" program is used when opening a disk image using the libguestfs API, or as part of virt-v2v conversion. Previously, this tool did not always handle the "-u" and "-g" options correctly when the host used an LDAP server to resolve user names and group names. This caused the virt-v2v command to fail when LDAP was in use. With this update, the "febootstrap-supermin-helper" program has been modified to parse the "-u" and "-g" options correctly, so that virt-v2v works as expected in the described scenario.
Users of febootstrap are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
