Description Jesse Keating 2009-04-16 19:46:52 EDT
On a ppc32 install I just did the bootloader doesn't seem to actually be installed. I had to rescue it and run ybin in order to have a boot loader. After that everything worked.
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2009-04-17 13:25:15 EDT
We should be running /sbin/mkofboot here instead of ybin. Can you attach all the usual log files to this bug report, or should I wait until rawhide syncs up to take it for a spin locally?
Comment 2 Jesse Keating 2009-04-17 13:37:09 EDT
I didn't notice that things weren't setup right until after I rebooted, and once I did that, storage.log and program.log were missing (we should be saving those!). Once rawhide syncs here I'll try another install to try and reproduce it.
Comment 3 Jesse Keating 2009-04-17 19:52:09 EDT
Got the log message Running ... ['/sbin/mkofboot', '/sbin/mkofboot', '-f', '-C', '/boot/etc/yaboot.conf'] If you notice, the program is passed twice as arguments. I tracked this back to a change from using rhpl.exec to iutil when execing things and a difference in how they treat arguments. I've submitted a patch that should fix this upstream.

Your fix will be in anaconda-126.96.36.199-1.
