Description Petr Machata 2014-12-17 23:39:49 UTC
Description of problem:
Text mode installation barfs on me with the following message:

The package 'yaboot' is required for this installation.  This package does not exist.  This is a fatal error and installation will be aborted.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Whatever's on final PowerPC network installation ISO.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wipe your disk.
2. Start a text installation.
3. Don't select VNC, but pure text.
4. Fill out bare minimum of configuration.
5. Begin installation.

Actual results:
I'm typing this by hand as it seems faster than trying to copy it otherwise, typos are thus possible.

Exception yum.Errors.RepoError: RepoError() in <bound method YumSqlitePackageSack.__del__ of <yum.sqlitesack.YumSqlitePackageSack object at 0xblahla>> ignored
Setting up the installation environment
Creating disklabel on /dev/sda
Creating appleboot on /dev/sda2
Creating swap on /dev/sda4
Creating ext4 on /dev/sda6
Creating ext4 on /dev/sda5
Creating ext4 on /dev/sda3
Starting package installation process

The package 'yaboot' etc. etc.
Press enter to exit.

Expected results:
Anaconda installs.

Additional info:
Wasn't yaboot replaced with grub for F 21?
Anyway, bug 1162914 seems related but different.

Does the same thing with VNC installation.

Comment 2 Petr Machata 2014-12-18 18:15:44 UTC
I also forgot to mention this is the netinstall ISO.  I didn't re-check with full ISO yet.
