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

See attached dmesg.log for complete boot log
Anaconda stage#1 should start
Possibly related to glibc.i586 breakage but unlikely have anything to do with rpm directly. Passing on to anaconda for now...
Are you still seeing this? I'm guessing not, since it looks like you're hitting the dbus thing now.
Thanks, I was going to revisit this once I got a little further into the install. But you are right, I'm observing systems starting loader so I believe we can close this issue.
I still have no idea what the root cause was? Any thoughts?
This definitely sounds like the glibc problems people were seeing the other day. I do believe init is dynamically linked now and problems with the version of glibc on the initrd would lead to problems starting init.
