#94 new defect

motd link not created properly on systems build in chroot

Reported by: jrollins Owned by: jrollins
Priority: minor Component: debirf

Sensitive: no

Description (last modified by jrollins)

I built a debirf minimal image inside of a chroot, and when I booted it (which booted fine, fwiw) I noticed that the motd was missing. I noticed that the motd link was broken, and therefore motd was not displaying at all:

INIT: Entering runlevel: 2
Starting enhanced syslogd: rsyslogd.

Debian GNU/Linux lenny/sid debirf-minimal ttyS0

debirf-minimal login: root
0 debirf-minimal:~# ls -al /etc/motd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 36 Nov  6 20:31 /etc/motd -> /home/test /minimal/root/var/run/motd
0 debirf-minimal:~# 

Building the image in a non-chroot environment causes no problems with the motd in the resulting image.

I don't have an idea about what could be causing this. Could it have something to do with how cpio creates the archive in the chroot?
