  • Status changed from new to assigned

The temp dir cannot be placed on a non Unix like FS. In your case you have to use -T to dispatch these files locally.

  • Milestone changed from 3.0.2 to 4.0.0
  • Priority changed from normal to low
  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Severity changed from normal to minor
  • Status changed from assigned to closed
  • Type changed from defect to enhancement

I'm changing this to an enhancement request in order to test that the temp dir in on a valid FS from a Linux perspective.

With 3.2.0 on with a similar -d target dir another report gives: FATAL ERROR. Cannot dd blank file

Corresponding to mindi: dd if=/dev/zero of=$imagefile bs=1k count=$BOOT_SIZE

It should be under MINDI_CACHE which is then in that case under /tmp so it should work, except if /tmp has some restrictions.
