xenial cloud image builds fail due to /lib/modules being present

Bug #1797170 reported by Dan Watkins

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

/lib/modules is now created by a package in the archive, which means that the `mkdir /lib/modules` in the ubuntu-cpc 030-root-tarball.binary hook fails (therefore failing the entire build).


New xenial cloud images cannot be produced.

[Test Case]

Attempt a livefs build of the ubuntu-cpc project; it will fail without a fix, and pass with a fix.

[Regression Potential]

The fix is to modify the `mkdir` to `mkdir -p`, so the potential for regression is very low.

Hello Dan, or anyone else affected,

Accepted livecd-rootfs into xenial-proposed. The package will build now and be available at https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/livecd-rootfs/2.408.38 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested and change the tag from verification-needed-xenial to verification-done-xenial. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed-xenial. In either case, without details of your testing we will not be able to proceed.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance for helping!

N.B. The updated package will be released to -updates after the bug(s) fixed by this package have been verified and the package has been in -proposed for a minimum of 7 days.
