Using an AppVM based on fc33, which previously successfully built a 4.1 iso which successfully booted and installed, I thought I would re-run, just to see what has been happening. I saved a copy of my builder.conf file, ran a
make distclean and then also
sudo rm -rf chroot-* and then copied my builder.conf back.
make qubes-os-iso fails with:
-> Building template fc32 (logfile: build-logs/template-fc32.log)... make: *** [Makefile:341: template-local-fc32] Error 1
Rummaging about in the template-local-fc32.log file, I see that the issue is
Unable to detect release version (use ‘–releasever’ to specify release version)
I found various references from 2020 claiming that this has been fixed. Apparently not so. I also saw some recent posts here claiming also to have hit the problem and surmounted it, but there are no details as to the solution, or even if the problem was a recent one, or the historical one.
Here is the log file: – sorry, new users, as I apparently am, cannot upload files.
Here is (essentially) my builder.conf file, based on the example-configs/qubes-os-r4.1.conf one:
Added near top: DISTS_VM := fc32 buster
Added near bottom: COMPONENTS := (filter-out gcc,(COMPONENTS))
