Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 495117
(anaconda) failed to resolve device UUID=<foo>
Last modified: 2009-04-28 14:03:35 EDT
clumens said that I can make livecd-iso-to-disk copy everything to a USB disk necessary to do a full DVD install from the USB disk. I aim to improve livecd-iso-to-disk to do this automatically if it detected
* He said to copy images/install.img to the USB stick
* Copy the DVD ISO to the USB stick
* Add repo=hd:UUID=<foo>:/ to the kernel command line.
* Booting the USB stick, it will automatically mount UUID=<foo> and look for the stage2 install.img.
* Anaconda runs and fails with:
ERROR: failed to resolve device UUID=<foo>
DEBUG: failed to resolve 'UUID=<foo>'
Tested with F11 Beta i386
This is possibly fixed by the fix for Bug #491781, but we can't test it until we have a DVD iso to test.
Warren, have a look at:
I just have to update the boot line to have stage2= and repo= in place of method=
for the changes in F11's anaconda.
Bad news, tested F11 Preview DVD iso with anaconda-184.108.40.206-1. It fails with the following syntax:
append initrd=initrd.img repo=hd:UUID=71e3d41f-4f6d-4f20-9952-6fb8a6176df4:/
append initrd=initrd.img repo=hd:/dev/sdb1:/
More "failed to resolve" after anaconda graphical mode had started, around the 2nd or 3rd screen.
Please attach /tmp/anaconda.log, /tmp/storage.log to this bug report.
I retract that, it was my mistake. My script failed to update the images/ directory. It was using the F11 Beta install.img.
