Description Zhang Yanmin 2007-01-22 03:06:06 EST
Description of problem:
I built up a new dvd images from the latest development tree and installed it to 
my ia64 box by nfs. I walked around bug #222840 by replacing netIPv4/6 with
fixed value 1. Then, the installation went ahead, but initrd was lost when
installing kernel.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Rebuilup dvd image from the latest development tree;
2.Install os on the machine by choosing nfs method;
3. When installing kernel, anaconda looked hanged for more than 10 minutes;

Actual results:
After installation, reboot machine, machine hanged.

Expected results:
Machine shouldn't hang when rebooting

Additional info:
1) I checked the partition and found initrd was missed.
2) I checked /root/install.log and found mkinitrd reported it couldn't find
/sbin/nash. Checking the rpm installation sequence written in /root/install.log,
I saw that anaconda installed mkinitrd firstly, then kernel, then nash, while it
installed many other rpms among them.
3) The correct sequence should be: nash, mkinitrd, kernel.

This was due to a bug in pkgorder that was fixed the end of last week
