Boot F11/ppc and point to F11/i386 for install.img should present WARNING
Last modified: 2013-09-02 02:36:31 EDT
Description of problem:
Accidentally entering a i386 install.img URL, the installer doesn't fail gracefully.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot F11/ppc install media (boot.iso + askmethod, or just PXE)
2. Point to a F11/i386 installation source for install.img
Running anaconda 188.8.131.52, the Fedora system installer - please wait...
exec of anaconda failed: Exec format error
install exited abnormally [1/1]
disabling /dev/loop0 LOOP_CLR_FD failed: 6
sending termination signals...done
sending kill signals...done
you may safely reboot your system
Expected a warning screen that indicated the install.img is for another architecture? But perhaps it doesn't work this way anymore?
