2017-12-07 13:10:29 -0500 asked a question Can't boot after upgrading kernel using luks encrypted root fs

Currently on F27 with kernel 4.13.13-300.fc27.x86_64. Anytime I try to install a newer kernel (e.g. 4.13.16-300.fc27) dnf completes correctly, but after reboot the system is stuck after the grub selection menu and before the luks password screen.

I can boot into any prior kernel with no issue. I'm not sure if this is due to kernel or dracut (possibly dracut doesn't build the new initramfs correctly?) dracut version: dracut-046-5.fc27.x86_64

I don't have journalctl of failed boots, as the system doesn't have access to luks encrypted fs at this time. 2 error lines show: dracut-cmdline terminal claiming there is no such device, and dracut-cmdline cgroups claiming the cgroups are already loaded. I don't see any similar lines during a good boot.

2015-03-26 11:14:09 -0500 asked a question Mock and Environment Modules with rpm dependency

I'm building some multiversion RPMs using environment modules. This works great with rpmbuild (I can use environment variables set in the modulefiles for the INCLUDE path etc). How can I tell mock to issue the relevant module load commands necessary to build the dependant RPMS correctly?

currently I module load the versions I want to build against (which publish a $PREFIX_XXX for each lib) and in the %build section ../configure --with-xxx=$PREFIX_XXX ...

As I said, this works very well outside mock, but of course fails spectacularly inside mock (I can't even persuade it to install my custom buildreqs, which have "provides" identical to distro RPMs (required so I can use them as dependency for 3rd party or distro RPMs without also installing the official RPMs).
