Description of problem:

After installing Rawhide, the grub.conf created does not contain a ramdisk.  Closer inspection shows no ramdisk file exists.  If I chroot into the filesystem and run dracut by hand, an initramfs is *not* built.  So somehow, initramfs creation is failing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
 * anaconda-13.23
 * dracut-004-1.fc13.noarch

How reproducible:
 * so far, 4 out of 4 attempts

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install to virt-guest using vmlinuz+initrd.img+install.img from http://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/stage/rawhide-testing/


1. Run dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
Actual results:

No file /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img is created.  I see the following stdout

which: no multipath in (/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin)
E: Failed to install /lib/udev/firmware.sh

Expected results:

Initramfs created

Additional info:
 * See anaconda-logs.tgz (/tmp/*log* if desired.

Comment 1 James Laska 2010-01-29 14:52:10 UTC
After chrooting into the installed system and running ...

 # yum install device-mapper-multipath
 # dracut /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
E: Failed to install /lib/udev/firmware.sh

A ramdisk hasn't been created.  So I guess the multipath stderr wasn't the culrprit.
