I am trying to rebuild the RHL 9 discs, but when I run buildinstall, I

gunzip: stdin: unexpected end of file

I've seen these before while building the boot.img files, but I even get
the error while building hdstg.img.



No replies...has anyone tried this?

I finally figured out that mk-images was trying to unzip *.o.gz files, which didn't exist. Attached is a patch to anaconda that alleviates the problem.



Also, I cannot find the comps tarball for RHL9, and rhlinux.redhat.com seems to be down. Has anyone seen it?

It appears that rhlinux is having hardware problems. The comps file can temporarily be found here:
http://people.redhat.com/katzj/comps-9.tar.gz
