Description Menanteau Guy 2019-03-12 14:45:21 UTC
Last Fedora-30-20190312.n.0 server dvd iso is not able to boot.
It is stuck on dracut emergency shell.

in the error log we can see:
localhost dracut-initqueue[805]: Warning: dracut-initqueue timeout - starting timeout scripts

It seems to me that the size of initrd.img (superior than 64MB) could be the problem but I am not able to confirm.

You can see openqa tests with FLAVOR:universal  https://openqa.stg.fedoraproject.org/tests/overview?distri=fedora&version=30&build=Fedora-30-20190312.n.0&groupid=3

Comment 2 Menanteau Guy 2019-03-12 14:47:55 UTC
It seems that last rawhide ppc64le Server dvd iso have the same problem

Comment 3 Brian Lane 2019-03-12 17:19:42 UTC
How was this image created? The cmdline says  inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=Fedora_S_dvd_ppc64le_30  but the label on sr0 is LABEL="Fedora-S-dvd-ppc64le-30"
I don't think it will map _ to -

Comment 4 Menanteau Guy 2019-03-13 10:33:45 UTC
Brian, You are right, I changed inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=Fedora_S_dvd_ppc64le_30 by inst.stage2=hd:LABEL=Fedora-S-dvd-ppc64le-30 in the grub command line and it is a lot better !!! so nothing to do with the initrd size...

The iso is comming from the dayly compose:  https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/compose/branched/Fedora-30-20190312.n.0/compose/Server/ppc64le/iso/Fedora-Server-dvd-ppc64le-30-20190312.n.0.iso

Comment 5 Brian Lane 2019-03-13 16:10:09 UTC
Ah! DVD. I'm going to bet that pungi is creating that label with the - in it. The boot.iso looks fine:

$ isoinfo -d -i Fedora-Everything-netinst-ppc64le-30-20190312.n.0.iso

Looking at the way ppc64le creates the isolabel shows that it is different from x86_64, because of yaboot (which we don't use anymore) and escapes. I think right way to fix this is to just use the same code as x86_64 in the ppc64le template.

referenced pungi PR is not yet merged and install on production.
So last delivered f30/rawhide composes still have same failure.

Comment 7 Adam Williamson 2019-03-15 18:50:58 UTC
Beta is in freeze right now, so this needs a freeze exception to go in. I'm gonna just go ahead and call this an automatic freeze exception per "Complete failure of any non-release-blocking TC/RC image to boot at all under any circumstance - "DOA" image (conditional failure is not an automatic freeze exception)" - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/QA:SOP_freeze_exception_bug_process#Automatic_freeze_exceptions . OK, technically it does boot if you change the args, but come on. :P

Brian, I see you merged the fix, can we assume an update is on the way? Thanks!
