Description Warren Togami 2009-02-26 12:20:58 EST
After Fedora 11 switched to the new architecture plan for x86_32, the kernel became either i586 or i686 + PAE.

LiveCD created on a system with PAE support installs the i686 PAE kernel.  This means the LiveCD image will fail to boot on a x86_32 system without PAE.  Shouldn't the LiveCD explicitly install the i586 kernel instead?

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2009-02-26 13:54:26 EST
There's nothing I see in either the configs or the code that would be selecting kernel-PAE and with the build I just did, kernel.i586 got pulled in.

Do you have any out of the ordinary yum plugins installed or something?
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2009-03-03 18:42:52 EST
I can't reproduce this at all with current livecd-tools and repos.  If you're still hitting it, please attach a log of your build and the output of 'rpm -qa yum*' from your build host.
