- Fix rpm metadata creation
There are rpm versions that require access to /dev and fail
with the error message 'Failed to initialize NSS library'
For details see:
Due to the rpm location checkup fix from Issue #1037 this
change impacts builds for distributions that uses an rpm
version with the above behavior (e.g CentOS) and fails as
consequence of the rpm call error. This commit fixes this
in a way that we make sure the host /dev is available at
the time of the call.

- Refactor handling of runtime tests check dict
Consolidate check list into CliTask base class such that we
can avoid duplication of runtime check dicts. Only runtime
tests that require stateful information according to the
commandline call are handled directly in the task code

- Delete check_grub_efi_installed_for_efi_firmware
The motivation is nice to check if the required grub module
package is part of the package list if the efi firmware is
requested, but as long as there is no distribution wide
standard for packaging grub this check will cause more trouble
than it is of help. Currently it failed for the arm architecture
and the grub2-arm64-efi package. We decided to prevent checking
against static lists and dropped this runtime check. Missing
grub modules will be recognized at the grub stage when we
search for them.

- Adding custom curl options for dracut-kiwi-lib module
This commit parses the `` argument from
the kernel command line to read and use curl options for the
`fetch_file` function of `` utility. Options are passed
as comma separated values.
Fixes #891
2019-04-05 - Marcus Schäfer <>
- Auto upgrade all image descriptions to v7.0 schema
2019-04-05 - Marcus Schäfer <>
- Deleted pxedeploy section
There is no further demand in the client config creation for the
legacy netboot code. Customers using the netboot initrd already
create the client config.<MAC> file manually or through another
system. With the next generation kiwi we also recommend the disk
based network deployment using the dracut capabilities and marked
the netboot code as still supported but on the legacy stream.
Along with the deletion in the schema the following changes
were also done:
* Deleted use of pxedeploy section in implementation
* Increase schema version to v7.0
* Update documentation on schema version update
* Added xsl stylesheet conversion from v6.9 to v7.0
Automatic schema version upgrade from v6.9 to v7.0 deletes
the pxedeploy section from any type specification
This Fixes #19
