Description Adam Williamson 2016-03-07 12:49:15 EST
This is a sort of tracker bug for https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1313957 and https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1313949 , being filed for blocker tracking purposes.

As a result of both those bugs, F24 x86_64 network installs usually get an i686 kernel and do not boot. This is clearly a release blocker for F24 Alpha and needs fixing somehow, but we are not sure which of the two bugs is most amenable to being fixed, so we are filing this issue-level bug to act as the blocker bug for the problem.

Blocker criterion is "A system installed with a release-blocking desktop must boot to a log in screen where it is possible to log in to a working desktop using a user account created during installation or a 'first boot' utility." or "A system installed without a graphical package set must boot to a state where it is possible to log in through at least one of the default virtual consoles.", depending on the install type.

Discussed at today's blocker review meeting [1]. Accepted as an Alpha blocker - whichever underlying bug we decide to fix, this is clearly an Alpha blocker as it prevents installed system boot after an x86_64 network install

I sent an anaconda patch:


which should fix this from the anaconda end (stopping it installing kernel-PAE on x86_64 even if it's available). I tested it, it seems to work.

This was fixed from the pungi end (it doesn't put i686 kernels in the x86_64 trees any more). The anaconda patch is applied to f24-branch but is not in the anaconda currently in Alpha builds.
