Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1013015
Anaconda should install an lpae kernel on ARM if the CPU is capable
Last modified: 2013-10-15 02:34:56 EDT
Description of problem:
When installing Fedora with Anaconda on the ARM systems containing LPAE functionality, the LPAE kernel should be installed, even if a non-LPAE kernel was booted to get to the installer. The LPAE kernel is needed for both providing more than 4GB of RAM and also for hardware virtualization support.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. PXE Boot an ARM server to install with Anaconda
kernel package gets installed
kernel-lpae package gets installed
All ARM systems with LPAE support set the "lpae" flag in the Features list in /proc/cpuinfo. Here is an example line:
Features : swp half thumb fastmult vfp edsp thumbee neon vfpv3 tls vfpv4 idiva idivt vfpd32 lpae
