Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 200264
ia64 default installs don't work
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:38 EST
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):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to install with 'linux text'
2. When prompted for packages to include -> select custom, leave defaults,
3. Reboot and try to login.
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
