Description of problem:
The 32-bit arm disk images include both kernel and kernel-lpae. Kernel-lpae is usually installed last and the dtb symlink created points to the lpae dtb folder which does not contain all dtb files. This causes a boot failure on some devices.
We have attempted to exclude kernel-lpae from the installation by adding "-kernel-lpae*" to the package section but this caused all the images to fail waiting for input:
Problems in request:
missing packages: kernel-lpae
Would you like to ignore this and continue with installation?
Please respond 'yes' or 'no':
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-lpae should not be required for the installation.
Disk image failure in F34:
Proposing as a blocker for F34, this prevents us from creating a release blocking image (Minimal armhfp).
Note the code in anaconda that requires kernel-lpae to be in the package set if available was added in 2013 in response to this bug:
commit is https://github.com/rhinstaller/anaconda/commit/ffe01087ce10c80c991776c92f30c669c5a50e01 (the logic has been moved/tweaked since but the basic idea is the same).
Hi, I am not sure how to fix the issue in the context of the bug 1013015.
1. Is the current behaviour a regression?
2. Should we drop the support for the kernel-lpae package?
3. Should we extend the condition for the installation of the kernel-lpae package?
4. Should we allow to exclude the package kernel-lpae from the installation in a kickstart file?
I think perhaps #3, extending the logic to prefer lpae if available but not require it. This would allow us to exclude it in the kickstart(#4) to make disk images that will boot on all hardware.
