Comment 2 James Laska 2009-03-23 15:13:32 EDT
Encountered while testing an updates.img for dlehman on a IBM Power5 ppc64 system (updates=http://dlehman.fedorapeople.org/updates-boot.img)
Comment 3 David Lehman 2009-03-23 16:34:19 EDT
This was in an updates.img that I had provided for test feedback -- closing to reduce noise since the code is/was not ever shipped.
