Description Don Zickus 2006-07-26 16:22:27 UTC
Description of problem:
I installed rawhide 20060725 on an ia64.  Upon reboot, it wouldn't let me in. 
In single user mode, I found out there was no /etc/shadow file.  
Reinstall with some custom selections.  UPon reboot, I can log-in but no
network.  Apparently dhcp-client is not a high priority package.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install with 'linux text'
2. When prompted for packages to include -> select custom, leave defaults,
selecct done.
3. Reboot and try to login.
Actual results:
Can't login

Expected results:

Additional info:
It seems the ia64 menu is different than x86_64.  On x86_64, you have the choice
of selecting one of three pre-configured environments (office/prod, development,
something else).  Ia64 doesn't seem to have those choices. 

Is this just the case of ia64 suffering some bitrot until fc6-test2 is out the
door, then pickup the pieces for rhel-5?

It's the case that you're installing 0725 on one machine and a different day's
rawhide on another -- and yesterday's rawhide happened to have this quirk. 
Should be fixed in today's
