QA:Testcase Media Repoclosure
Associated release criterion
This test case is associated with the Release_Criteria#no-broken-packages release criterion. If you are doing release validation testing, a failure of this test case may be a breach of that release criterion.
This testcase will verify that the offline repository included on release blocking images will not contain broken dependencies.
- Obtain access to an environment with the
- Download the ISO to be tested to that machine.
How to test¶
- Mount the ISO to be tested locally.
mount -o loop Rocky-8.5-x86_64-minimal.iso /media
- Determine the path to the
repodatadirectory(ies) on the ISO.
find /media -name repodata
- Run the
dnf repoclosurecommand on the mounted ISO.
dnf --verbose repoclosure --repofrompath BaseOS,/media/BaseOS --repo BaseOS --repofrompath Minimal,/media/Minimal --repo Minimal
- Unmount the ISO.
dnf repoclosurecommand does not generate any errors.

NOTE: In this example the content of the
Rocky-8.5-x86_64-minimal.iso was copied to
/tmp then the BaseOS repository was modified to remove the
setup-2.12.2-6.el8.noarch.rpm package and the repository metadata was regenerated.
