Description of problem:

Firstly installation of "Fedora 9 x86-64" on a partition (sorry, I can not find
the entry for F9 bug report), then install "Fedora 9 ia32" on another. Boot ia32   
will report "request_module: runaway loop modprobe binfmt-464c". I find that the
two partition with the same root=LABLE=/. After I modify the grub "root=LABEL=/
->  root=/dev/sdaX and /etc/fstab "LABEL=/ -> /dev/sdaX". the system can boot

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

Steps to Reproduce:
1.installation x86_64 fedora 9 Alpha on /dev/sda1

Actual results:

Expected results:

Reassigning to proper component (anaconda) as this looks more like an
installation/kernel problem.

Read ya, Phil
Comment 2 Chris Lumens 2008-03-14 13:38:39 EDT
This should be better in F9-Beta since we are using filesystem UUIDs instead of
labels in /etc/fstab.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-14 18:18:59 EDT
We should still double check to make sure there aren't two filesystems with the
same label, though.
Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2008-04-01 17:29:23 EDT
Jeremy, I think you said this was fixed in another bug.  Setting this one to
need retesting.
Comment 5 Song, Youquan 2008-04-11 07:20:51 EDT
With UUID instead of label in FC9 beta. this bug is fixed.
