Firstboot Error Report
Description of problem:
Problem with firstboot_kdump module.
firstboot fails on installation of Fedora 10. Error log appears to indicate that there is a missing Module: fucntions
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 10 installed from DVD as NEW INSTALL
I have installed on both a Dell Optiplex 745 Desktop and HP Pavilion dv4000 Laptop. Both installs produced the same error.
On the HP Pavilion dv4000, I had initially installed Fedora Core 10 as an UPGRADE from Fedora Core 7 ( choosing UPGRADE instead of NEW INSTALL ), and the error did NOT occur.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora Core 10 from DVD as NEW INSTALL
2.Selected all initially available repositories and all packages
3.After Install completes, REBOOT
Upon REBOOT an error message appears indicating there is a problem with firstboot_kdump module and firstboot did not run because of an error. Also, indicating that a module called functions could not be found.
Since the error has occurred on multiple computers on multiple attempts, the results on the 2 computers mentioned are expected to be a failing 'firstboot' program, because of a missing module 'functions'.

ImportError: No module named functions
reproduced using Fedora 11 Preview (i386) on Dell Optiplex 270 desktop
