Description Martin Banas 2011-03-31 02:07:14 EDT
Description of problem:
If the installation is started with fips=1 kernel option, anaconda should install dracut-fips package by default (also in minimal installation).
See comment #20:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start RHEL6 installation with fips=1 kernel option
2. Proceed to stage2, select "minimal" packageset group
3. Finish the installation
4. # rpm -q dracut-fips

Actual results:
dracut-fips package is not installed when fips=1 is provided on kernel command line

Expected results:
According to Stephan Mueller ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=691419#c20 ) this package should be installed unconditionally when fips=1 is given.
