Fatal error using dud for 7.2Alpha installation
Last modified: 2016-05-31 16:18:51 EDT
Using a driver disk for a 7.2 alpha installation fails. The problem is seen with
different installation methods (pxe/net or remote storage).
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install 7.2 alpha
2. select a driver disk
A fatal error screen (see screenshot1) about a missing kmod-driver package appears.
The installation will be aborted, but the driver package is still present and usable (see screenshot2).
Driver disk should be loaded and installed
No additional information is available is collectable because no shell (F2) or F3 screen is working.
The driver package can be installed on an existing 7.2 system without problems.

Thanks for reporting this.
From the kmod package it seems like you have rebuild the driver for rhel7.2, I understand it can be loaded/used on an existing rhel7.2 installation.
- Can you upload the driver package?
- Also the one for 7.1 might be useful, so I can compare with a 7.1 deployment.
- When using pxeboot, you use format "dd=http://<ip>/driverdisk.img", right?
The pxeboot notation is inst.dd=http://<ip>/driverdisk.img.

I got the issue reproduced, and this looks indeed like an issue here preventing the DUD to work.
- For reproducing, I used KVM guests, deployed with virt-install
- I use kickstart, and the additionally inst.dd=http://<ip>/driverdisk.img
- After 7.1 deployment, kmod-megasr is installed, after 7.2 deployment not
- both DUD images follow the same directory structure
- the 7.2 RPM installs fine on an installed rhel7.2 alpha
I see this difference while installation, RHEL7.1, but not 7.2:
DD: Processing Network Drivers from /tmp/DD-net/
DD: Processing DD repo /media/DD//rpms/x86_64 on /tmp/DD-net/megasr-16.01.2014.0318.4fts-6.el7.1-000.x86_64.iso
DD: Extracting files from /media/DD//rpms/x86_64/kmod-megasr-16.01.2014.0318.4fts-6.el7.1.x86_64.rpm
This issue should be considered as blocker.
The issue is reported for RHEL-7.2-Alpha-1.1 with kernel-3.10.0-302.el7.x86_64, which was distributed to partners. I have no access to later builds.
"Doc Type: Bug Fix → Known Issue"
Does that mean there is not intention to fix this?? Please explain.
We're trying to reproduce the problem(s) now.
Note that the original problem in comment #0 and the problem in comment #8 are two different failures in two different code paths, so we may need to split this bug in two in order to track those separately.
I can reproduce this in KVM when booting with the provided 7.2 DUD iso. There are multiple problems, here are fixes for 2 of them:
In addition to those it extracts the drivers 3 times, into DD-1, DD-2 and DD-3.
In which beta snap shot can we expect this to be fixed?
anaconda-184.108.40.206-1.el7 is included in Snapshot 1 so this fix is included in snap 1.
Retest with Snapshot2 (anaconda-220.127.116.11-1.el7) done.
Using a driver disk is working fine with this snapshot.
