   SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for kiwi

Announcement ID:    SUSE-RU-2013:1234-1
Rating:             low
References:         #819772 #822247 
Affected Products:
                    SUSE Linux Enterprise Software Development Kit 11 SP3

   An update that has two recommended fixes can now be
   installed. It includes one version update.


   This update fixes the following issues:


   fixed handling of bootincluded items: packages and
   archives marked as bootinclude have to respect an optional
   arch setup like this example:


   added build result meta data files each build now
   contains two additional files: The .packages file which
   contains a list of all installed packages The .verified
   file which contains the result of rpm -Va These files are
   only created on rpm based systems and should help to
   compare build results better


   fixed getSingleInstSourceSatSolvable() instead of
   relying on the suffix of a file it's better to actually
   check if it's compressed or non compressed data. Due to
   redirections and symlinks it might happen that a file name
   e.g 'packages' is resolved into 'packages.en.gz'. kiwi
   downloaded the file and failed to check if it's a
   compressed file (bnc #822247)


   fixed fetchFile function. The variable $imageBlkSize
   is not initialized, so it is better to use $chunk


   if a targetdevice is used instead of a loop we need
   to wait for udev to finish the event loop in the same way
   as it is done in bindDiskPartitions() when binding the
   partitions of a loop device (bnc #819772)
