Basically every time I run a “zypper dup” on my machine, all of the packages install but when it gets to the dracut portion post-install, it just hangs indefinitely and fills the /var/log/zypper.log file with the following error (repeated continuously):
[zypp::posttrans++] RpmPostTransCollector.cc(executeScripts):94 /usr/lib/dracut/modules.d/50drm/module-setup.sh: line 27: warning: command substitution: ignored null byte in input
I have Tumbleweed installed on other machines with no issues at all and the zypper.log file doesn’t grow exponentially with every transaction (I’ve seen mine hit 15GB in just a few minutes). I’m up to date as of today’s updates and it’s still happening. I checked the file in question and it doesn’t look particularly unusual: (line 27 is the *.ko line)
local _fname _fcont while read _fname || -n "$_fname" ]; do case "$_fname" in ** *.ko) _fcont="$(< $_fname)" ;; ** *.ko.gz) _fcont="$(gzip -dc $_fname)" ;; *.ko.xz) _fcont="$(xz -dc $_fname)" ;; esac
I’ve compared the file to another machine where it works fine and the file seems identical.
