Description Kazunori Asayama 2008-03-13 10:34:57 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #405341 +++

[root@ps3 boot]# kexec -f --command-line="root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00
video=720p panic=30" --initrd=initrd- vmlinuz- 
Cannot determine the file type of vmlinuz-

Additional info:

There is difference between F7's kexec-tools.spec and F8's kexec-tools.spec as

 %ifarch ppc
-%define archdef ARCH=ppc64
+%define archdef ARCH=ppc

I guess that this is the reason why ppc32 kexec can't handle 64-bit kernels.
Comment 1 Kazunori Asayama 2008-03-14 01:44:55 EDT
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.
