This is probably the same problem that were preventing PXE boots.
It's fixed upstream, and should be easy to backport. I'll try to reproduce it here to make sure it really is, and spin a new rpm.

There is a scratch build at http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=789050 with a proposed fix for this issue. Can you verify if it really fixes it for you?

Comment 3 Kevin Verma 2008-08-28 06:24:59 EDT

I confirm suggested Koji build fixes this issue. 

Many thanks !

Comment 5 Glauber Costa 2008-08-28 12:19:37 EDT

I've pushed a new update in testing state. I did so because it's an update that fixes two bugs. So, to be sure that one of them is not breaking the other one, can you retest the new update and karma it accordingly ?
