Description Geoff Levand 2009-04-24 15:02:03 EDT
Description of problem:

anaconda installs the 32 bit kernel package on the 64 bit Mac G5.
I noticed bootup started failing several days ago, but just now investigated it.

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

today's rawhide build (24-Apr-2009 10:02)

sha1sum ppc/os/ppc/ppc64/{ramdisk.image.gz,vmlinuz}
384cf8ac27a26070cb2de3f908ce8cfa2a59fabb  ppc/os/ppc/ppc64/ramdisk.image.gz
d9e172912488fc456a25b7066faa74e121d13aa9  ppc/os/ppc/ppc64/vmlinuz

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. run install
2. do 'ls /mnt/sysroot/boot/'
3. reboot
Actual results:

Shows /mnt/sysroot/boot/vmlinux-**-f11.ppc.smp
Gets OpenFirmware fault on startup.

Expected results:

Should show /mnt/sysroot/boot/vmlinux-**-f11.ppc64

Additional info:

Tried text and graphical install on the Mac G5 with same failure.

The correct kernel (64 bit) is installed on the PS3 game console.
