Description Dennis Gregorovic 2009-09-17 12:25:56 UTC
When ppc64-utils became an empty package, its set of files was moved to other packages, such as powerpc-utils.  The /usr/bin/mkzimage script got dropped along the way but is still needed.  Please add it to powerpc-utils.

Comment 1 David Woodhouse 2009-09-17 12:29:46 UTC
Why's it needed? What does it do that the standard 'wrapper' script from the kernel (which we ship in the kernel-bootwrapper package) can't do?

Comment 2 Dennis Gregorovic 2009-09-23 13:48:50 UTC
David, thank you for pointing me in the right direction.  After a couple tweaks in mk-images.ppc, I was able to get anaconda to build the netboot image using kernel-bootwrapper.

Comment 3 David Woodhouse 2009-09-23 17:32:59 UTC
Er, wasn't anaconda already doing that? The images/netboot/ directory of the install image has netboot images in Fedora 11 and in rawhide...

Comment 4 Dennis Gregorovic 2009-09-23 18:38:50 UTC
https://www.redhat.com/archives/anaconda-devel-list/2009-September/msg00418.html contains the patch to anaconda that I needed to get netboot images on ppc64.  The paths in anaconda worked for ppc but not ppc64.
