Description Devan Goodwin 2009-06-10 18:12:59 EDT
Description of problem:

Cobbler as of 1.6.5 has a requirement on the syslinux package, but only for x86 and x86_64 architectures. On s390x, because of this missing requirement (which cannot be added as I understand the syslinux package does not exist on this arch) the Satellite installer prints the following warning:

* Update configuration in database.
* Setting up Cobbler..
Could not find files matching /usr/share/syslinux/pxelinux.0

* Restarting services.

We can't fix the bug originally reported in bug #505133, so we're filing this one to investigate either having it be silently ignored, or having it become an actual error that halts installation. (mdehaan recommends this as pxe provisioning will be broken until syslinux is manually installed)

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

Satellite-5.3.0-RHEL5-re20090605.1, cobbler 1.6.5.

How reproducible:

Seems to be 100% on s390x.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin install.pl on s390x RHEL 5 system.
Actual results:

Warning as displayed above.

Expected results:

TBD. :) Could be warning is suppressed, displayed differently, or treated as an error and installation halts.

Additional info:

mdehaan can probably clarify more on why the syslinux requires is removed for s390x, and also as noted above his opinion is that this should become a fatal error for the installer.
