Description of problem:
Seen during an install of rawhide on ia64.  Just after installing packages when
it would normally setup the boot loader I get this error:

                    ┌─────────────┤ Warning ├─────────────┐

                    │               └────┘                │                     
                    │                                     │

I then boot the installer in rescue mode and verify that the kernel is installed:
sh-3.2# chroot /mnt/sysimage/
sh-3.2# rpm -q kernel

so I assume booty is incorrectly thinking the kernel was not installed?

I will try to debug this some more but any suggestions more than welcome.

only tried once, I will retest

Looking in anaconda.log I see this as the last few lines:

21:04:55 INFO    : moving (1) to step firstboot
21:04:55 INFO    : moving (1) to step instbootloader
21:04:55 WARNING : Unable to determine kernel type/version for

so, might be something funny with this kernel build.  I will build a tree with a
different kernel to see what that does.

Fixed in git
Comment 3 Doug Chapman 2008-04-01 08:40:12 EDT
Can we get this fix pushed into CVS?  This is completely blocking Fedora-ia64
progress as we cannot install due to this.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2008-04-01 09:14:17 EDT
Uhhh, what CVS?  anaconda is maintained in git now and has been for about six

But it'll be built for rawhide probably later today as we've been doing builds
mostly at a minimum of every other day.
