Description Eli Wapniarski 2014-07-12 21:01:40 UTC
I have been getting:

dracut-install: ERROR: installing 'vi'
dracut-install: ERROR: installing '/etc/virc'
/usr/lib/dracut/dracut-install -D /var/tmp/initramfs.8LBEMd -a vi /etc/virc ps grep cat rm

When installing kernel-3.15.4 and when I intalled kernel-3.15.3.

The computer seems to work fine. However, I don't belieive I should be getting this.

Please help me to resolve it.

Getting similar too. Few months ago I ran:
yum remove vim-minimal-7.4.179-1.fc20.x86_64

And today during update:

Comment 2 Sandro Bonazzola 2015-05-11 06:15:59 UTC
This is affecting also mock builds when the kernel package is one of the dependencies. Rising severity since this make such builds to fail.

Comment 3 David Caro 2015-05-11 06:30:19 UTC
As a workaround on mock, you can install the vim-minimal package manually before running it

Comment 4 Tuomo Soini 2015-05-13 18:09:36 UTC
dracut should depend on vim-minimal.

Same problem in rhel7.

echo 'install_items=" ps grep cat rm "' > /etc/dracut.conf.d/50-no-vi.conf

Comment 9 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 12:21:25 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 10 Fedora Update System 2015-06-05 23:39:14 UTC
dracut-037-13.git20150518.fc20 has been pushed to the Fedora 20 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
