[root@ps3 boot]# kexec -f --command-line="root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
video=720p panic=30" --initrd=initrd-22.214.171.124-43.fc8.img vmlinuz-126.96.36.199-43.fc8
Cannot determine the file type of vmlinuz-188.8.131.52-43.fc8
There is difference between F7's kexec-tools.spec and F8's kexec-tools.spec as
-%define archdef ARCH=ppc64
+%define archdef ARCH=ppc
I guess that this is the reason why ppc32 kexec can't handle 64-bit kernels.
Created attachment 298016 [details]
use the same configuration as F7
I tried the change attached to use the same configuration as F7,
and the ppc32 kexec could load 64-bit kernels correctly.
kexec-tools-1.102pre-7.fc8 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 8
fixed in -7.fc8
kexec-tools-1.102pre-7.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
