Description Daniel Berrange 2009-03-02 08:57:18 EST
Description of problem:
Todays Fedora 11 rawhide compose has a .treeinfo file containing

initrd = images/pxeboot/initrd.img
boot.iso = images/boot.iso
kernel = images/pxeboot/vmlinuz

mainimage = images/install.img

initrd = images/pxeboot/initrd-PAE.img
kernel = images/pxeboot/vmlinuz-PAE

family = Fedora
timestamp = 1235897570.93
variant = 
totaldiscs = 1
version = development
discnum = 1
packagedir = 
arch = i586

Note, that 'arch' field in the [general] section is 'i586', but the images section is [images-i386].  This breaks installation of guest virtual machines, because virt-install sees an arch of 'i586' and tries to find [images-i586] which does not exist.

Either the 'arch' field needs to be put back to i386, or the 'images-$ARCH' section needs to be images-i586 and not images-i386.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rawhide as of 2009-03-02 compose

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.virt-install --file /dev/HostVG/f11i386 --ram 800 --location http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/development/i386/os/ --hvm --vnc --noautoconsole --name f11i386 --accelerate --os-type linux --os-variant fedora11

Actual results:
ERROR    No section: 'images-i586'

Expected results:
Guest install starts.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2009-03-02 09:06:31 EST
Also appears that the 'images-i386' section refers to 'images/pxeboot/vmlinuz' which does not exist - only 'images/pxeboot/vmlinuz-PAE'. Unclear whether this is another bug and it should point to vmlinuz-PAE too, or whether 'vmlinuz' is intended, and it just failed to build in today's rawhide compose

Pointer to upstream bugreport against anaconda

Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2009-03-17 11:08:21 EDT
Looking at today's .treeinfo file, I see an [images-i386] section, arch = i386 in [general], a reference to images/pxeboot/vmlinuz, and that file in the tree as expected.  This is in addition to references to vmlinuz-PAE.

Can you please try another install and verify that it's working for you now?  Thanks.
Comment 4 Daniel Berrange 2009-03-17 13:45:03 EDT
Yes, today's rawhide is working correctly
