That or downloading them to /tmp (or similar) in %post via HTTP or the
like.  Either is reasonable.  I tend to do the downloading as it's more
flexible for non-NFS installs.


Well, I'm pulling my hair out.  Sigh.

Just tried:

%post --nochroot

(cd /mnt/sysimage ; gunzip -c | tar xf -) < /mnt/source/root-overlay.tgz

and it failed.  It seems that /mnt/source has been *unmounted* by the time
%post gets run.  Which makes no sense to me.

When is /mnt/source unmounted?
