SUSE Recommended Update: Recommended update for python-kiwi
Announcement ID: SUSE-RU-2020:1048-1
Rating: moderate
References: #1165823
Affected Products:
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Open Buildservice Development Tools 15-SP1
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Module for Development Tools 15-SP1

An update that has one recommended fix can now be installed.

Description:

This update for python-kiwi fixes the following issues:

  • Fixed _get_grub2_mkconfig_tool

Last patch on this method breaks the search for alternative mkconfig names. It returns always on the first lookup which could be none. This breaks on systems that uses a different name than grub2-mkconfig, like on Ubuntu.
  • Increase spare space on disk repart (bsc#1165823)

The sizing of the virtual cylinders in parted seems to be unfavorable, as with some disks and SD cards here the device size is not a multiple of the cylinder size, so the last incomplete cylinder is wasted. If this wasted space is more than 5MiB, kiwi tries to resize indefinitely. Therefore min_additional_mbytes gets increased to prevent running into this situation.
