This looks like the compose going wrong.  Or at least, odd.
Comment 2 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2008-06-02 18:53:02 EDT
rawhide of 2008-06-02 is still including anaconda- in the initrd.img
files for isolinux and pxeboot.  Stage2.image is also

Boot still fails.
Comment 3 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2008-06-04 17:39:25 EDT
still wrong today (2008-06-04)

still not installable
Comment 4 Jesse Keating 2008-06-04 17:46:09 EDT
I'm pretty sure that booting is failing for something different.  As to
reporting the wrong anaconda version, I'm digging into that right now.
Comment 5 Jesse Keating 2008-06-04 17:57:12 EDT
Bingo.  The source tarball for has an old spec file in it for
so the anaconda version is listed wrong at build time.
Comment 6 Chris Lumens 2008-06-04 18:24:10 EDT
We rebuilt today so should be in the tree AND it should have the right
spec file.  Let's see if the booting problem goes away as well and if not, open
a new bug for it.
