Description of problem: The rescue mode of Fedora-12-Alpha-ppc-DVD.iso is nearly unusable. There is no /bin/ls; only "echo *" works. 'rm' is there, but invoking it gives "sh: /bin/rm: /lib/ld.so.1: bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory". Indeed, /lib is empty, although there is a /lib_old with many files that apparently belong in /lib. ['ls' does not work, so getting more info is hard.]
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda-12.15 on Fedora-12-Alpha-ppc-DVD.iso
How reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot Fedora-12-Alpha-ppc-DVD on Apple iMac G5 (64-bit PowerPC) using "linux rescue" command line.
2. Do not start network interfaces; Skip mounting of target as /mnt/sysimage.
3. Try to run "ls".
Actual results: sh: ls: not found
Expected results: 'ls' produces a directory listing
gzip -dc < mounted_DVD/ppc/ppc64/ramdisk.image.gz | cpio --list
shows no 'ls'. The ppc32 version also has this symptom.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

I'm closing this as a part of my bug list cleanup, because the build processes changed a lot. Is this still an issue with current F13 builds? If it is, please reopen this bug.
