Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2012-05-04 16:39:13 EDT
I'm still seeing this with 17.TC2 with a koan --replace-self install.  I'm setting repo=.... to get the 17.TC2 squashfs.img.  Does koan need to be setting something (or removing something) on the kernel boot line?
Comment 3 Orion Poplawski 2012-05-04 16:44:03 EDT
Bah, looks like it was the lang= line which is coming from koan.  Re-assigning.
Comment 4 Orion Poplawski 2012-05-04 16:51:53 EDT
Nope, removing the lang= line doesn't help.  There is a LANG=en_US.UTF-8 entry and that's what causing it.  Removing it works.
Comment 5 James C. 2012-05-21 20:24:14 EDT
This has been addressed in the following github issue:


Version 2.2.3 koan will introduce the --no-copy-default option, which will prevent the copying of the options from the current default kernel. Additionally, you can remove the "lang: ~" option from the kernel_options setting in /etc/cobbler/settings to prevent that option from being added in the future.
Comment 6 James C. 2012-06-06 08:30:59 EDT
2.2.3-1 has been released, which resolves this bug.
