Description Will Woods 2009-02-24 16:47:44 EST
Current (20090224) rawhide .treeinfo has:
  initrd = images/pxeboot/initrd.img
  boot.iso = images/boot.iso
  kernel = images/pxeboot/vmlinuz
which is normal, but the [general] section says:
  arch = i586

buildinstall passes --arch i586 to both mk-images and maketreeinfo.py. mk-images changes its arch to i386 (which is correct) but maketreeinfo.py was never informed of the change.

This causes virt-install (and other tools) to be unable to find the images-$arch section (which must *always* be present), making it unable to install Rawhide.

I think the proper fix is to pass 'i386' (i.e. basearch) to both mk-images and maketreeinfo.py. 

A patch been sent to anaconda-devel-list for review.

Committed and pushed your patches.  This should be fixed in up the next build of anaconda.  Thanks.

I was able to get to the graphical stage of anaconda with yesterday's rawhide, so I believe this is fixed.
