Description Christopher Blizzard 2006-08-09 00:00:36 EDT
We get this on build59 of our OLPC builds, listed here:


I will attach a screenshot.  Probably cosmetic, but still ugly.

Reported by Teus Benschop.  Thanks!

Why does this not show up in FC6 original testing?
Custom initramfs?
Comment 4 Christopher Blizzard 2006-08-09 09:06:25 EDT
Yes, we have a custom initramfs for OLPC.
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2006-09-28 12:27:43 EDT
Then make ram a symlink to ram1!

Comment 7 Matthew Miller 2007-04-06 14:18:00 EDT
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.

[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
