dracut-fips not found when adding fips=1 during installation
Last modified: 2015-09-03 06:07:36 EDT
Description of problem:
Installer halts with error `dracut-fips not installed` after adding fips=1 to initfs line before commencing installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Add `fips=1` to boot loader prior to starting installation
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installer
2. Press Tab for options
3. Add `fips=1` to end of configuration
4. Proceed with installation
Installer allows me to set up partitioning, then when I click 'Done' it starts installing.. moments later the system throws the crash handler. The error reported is:
Adding fips=1 would automatically include dracut-fips, and the system could be installed with FIPS enabled (allowing us to use the encrypt checkbox during partioning).
Incorrect install file used - closing ticket.
I do not show this error happening with rhel-server-7.1-x86_64-dvd.iso
