Description David Quenzler 2009-01-09 21:26:06 UTC
Description of problem:
breed = suse
/boot/grub/menu.lst contains kssendmac

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Install a SuSE client

Actual results:
kssendmac exists as a boot parameter on a SuSE client

Expected results:
No kssendmac boot parameter

Additional info:
Find a way to avoid adding kssendmac to the kernel_options string if it's not applicable to the breed.

Hack (since I'm only installing SuSE clients):
# diff utils.py utils.py.ori
< #    if len(kernel_txt) < 244:
< #        results["kernel_options"]["kssendmac"] = None
>     if len(kernel_txt) < 244:
>         results["kernel_options"]["kssendmac"] = None

Moving this to the cobbler component, Fedora product.

Comment 2 Ricky Zhou 2009-08-05 16:41:16 UTC
Oops, I misread the release - can you check if this is still a bug in F10 or F11 and close this if it's fixed?

Comment 3 David Quenzler 2009-08-05 17:32:20 UTC
I just checked the 1.6.8 source, utils.py still has the same code.  It's not fixed yet.

    # determine if we have room to add kssendmac to the kernel options line
    kernel_txt = hash_to_string(results["kernel_options"])
    if len(kernel_txt) < 244:
        results["kernel_options"]["kssendmac"] = None

Please make sure there's an equivalent Trac item on this open at fedorahosted.org/cobbler ... that's the main list for items we fix upstream.

Seems like this would be an easy one for some one with some SuSE boxes to quickly patch/test, no?

Comment 5 Michael DeHaan 2009-08-10 22:09:37 UTC
Opened up a Trac item here so we don't loose track of this one.


Comment 7 John Poelstra 2009-11-16 17:22:02 UTC
The bug is reported against a version of Fedora that is no longer maintained and Trac tickets appears to be addressed

Can this bug be closed?
