Description of problem:
The latest update of parted to 1.8.2-1.fc6 caused libparted-1.8.so.0 to
disappear. Thus programs from the anaconda and anaconda-runtime packages linked
against it do not work anymore.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install anaconda-runtime
2. Try to build a custom install DVD with buildinstall etc
# pkgorder --product=Fedora $FCBASE/$arch $arch Fedora > $FCBASE/pkgfile.$date
Traceback (most recent call last):

mkinitrd needs to be rebuilt. Peter Jones figured out what needed to change in
the mkinitrd package yesterday, so there may already be an update available.
We don't release updated anaconda source RPMs. The START_ARRAY problem is
because the FC-6 anaconda does not build correctly with the latest kernels.
