booty should require efibootmgr on ia64
Last modified: 2008-03-04 10:18:18 EST
Description of problem:
A while back efibootmgr was removed from the elilo package into it's own
package. It is no longer automatically there by default. On ia64 booty uses
efibootmgr to set the boot options. Without it anaconda hangs at "installing
bootloader". We need to add the following to booty's specfile to make sure it
is available when needed:
Or, I hear rumors that some vendors may be building efi based x86 systems soon
also, so perhaps we don't want the %ifarch ia64. Your call on that.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
On second thought.....
efibootmgr is not available on ppc and probably won't be available on sparc,
alpha and arm. Since booty is a noarch package we need to make sure that it
works on all platforms so %ifarch probably isn't valid since a booty.noarch
built on one platform will not be the same as on another.
I am thinking the right place for the "Requires efibootmgr" is in elilo.
Yes, it should be in elilo. Not booty.
This will be fixed in the next build of elilo.
