Will Woods' comment:

I'm 98% sure this is caused by a bug in dracut, which should be fixed by this
patch: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.initramfs/2639

* Using a kickstart with "network --device=link" causes parse-kickstart to
write "ip=..." args to /etc/cmdline.d, then unset CMDLINE
* The bug with _getcmdline causes the "ip=..." arg to get duplicated
* "getargs ip=" returns the duplicated "ip=..." args, and then the network
module dies with the "Please supply bootdev argument for multiple ip= lines"
error.
Comment 1 Kamil Páral 2012-05-03 14:52:50 EDT
See attachment 573018 [details] to see the kickstart used.

Proposing as NTH. A lot of existing kickstarts may be broken and we can't fix
this with an update after final release.
Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2012-05-04 07:23:30 EDT

Comment 3 Kamil Páral 2012-05-04 10:04:33 EDT
How can I test this? dracut is part of initrd.img, right? How can I build it from updates-testing?

Either build a test iso or wait for the next compose that includes it - that will include the new dracut in the initrd.
Comment 5 Adam Williamson 2012-05-04 13:42:29 EDT
Discussed at 2012-05-04 NTH review meeting. Seems to break significant kickstart functionality (choice of network device), so accepted as NTH.
