Description John Reiser 2007-10-20 15:25:31 UTC
Description of problem: During install from DVD for Fedora 8 based on rawhide of
Oct.19, 2007, the message "/usr/sbin/load_policy: Can't load policy: no such
file or directory" appears.  This is after loading drivers (firewire*, libata,
sata_nv, pata_amd), with a full-screen blue background, just before the message
"anaconda-, the Fedora installer" appears at the bottom in white text.

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

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create install DVD using "pungi -c /usr/share/pungi/f8-fedora.ks
--destdir=/data/Fedora8 --name Fedora --ver 8"
2. boot DVD, choose install
Actual results: "/usr/sbin/load_policy: Can't load policy: no such file or
directory" in white letters on all-blue backgroud, after loading drivers, and
before "anaconda, the Fedora installer".

Expected results: no complaint

Does your installation DVD pull in the policycoreutils package?

Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2007-10-22 14:17:36 UTC
Actually, anaconda should be requiring that package.  I've added this to the
spec file.  Please let us know if the next build of anaconda fixes this bug for you.

Comment 3 John Reiser 2007-10-23 14:51:17 UTC
The message still appears using today's (Tue.Oct.23) anaconda-, even
with 'policycoreutils' added explicitly into the .ks kickstart file that is
input to pungi.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-04-04 14:13:45 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
during the development of Fedora 8. In order to refocus our efforts as
a project we are changing the version of this bug to '8'.

If this bug still exists in rawhide, please change the version back to
(If you're unable to change the bug's version, add a comment to the bug
and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help and we apologize for the interruption.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
