Description Tony Breeds 2009-04-23 00:32:27 EDT
An install of today's rawhide resulted in a successful install but the boot failed.  This is tracked down to the fact that we have a 32-bit kernel on my 64-bit host.

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

ec009356d579aec8d6d3ff4e9622cc9a  ramdisk.image.gz
0a6bbf4604cdd87a50022af9903b7ea4  vmlinuz
3e32dbf4e0f0cf6dcceeac263dafe193  yaboot
$ strings vmlinuz | egrep '^Linux version'
Linux version (mockbuild@ppc6.fedora.phx.redhat.com) (gcc version 4.4.0 20090414 (Red Hat 4.4.0-0.34) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Mon Apr 20 15:22:57 EDT 2009

(There is no http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/development/ppc64/os/images/install.img)
I don't know what version of anacondathis is but:
$ strings -n 5 install.img | head

How reproducible:

I netbooted the yaboot, kernel and initrd above, ran through the installer (getting install.img from the URL above).  The machine failed to boot.  Installing the kernel.ppc64 package (and removeing the kernel.ppc package) fixes the problem.

This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.  Thanks for the bug report.
Comment 4 Geoff Levand 2009-05-19 18:56:30 EDT
Just to follow up, I tested this on a Mac G5 with today's rawhide build (19-May-2009 09:08) and this problem if fixed.
