Description G.Wolfe Woodbury 2010-04-16 04:59:07 EDT
Description of problem:
 smolt ignores and overwrites an existing /etc/sysconfig/hw-uuid file following installation in Fedora 13.

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

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC13
2. restore hw-uuid file prior to reboot
3. run (firstboot)
Actual results:
  the existing hw-uuid is replaced in the generated report

Expected results:
  re-use the existing hw-uuid

Additional info:
  this seems to be a regression, as restoring the hw-uuid after install and before firstboot used to work (keeping the hw-uuid).  FC11 re-uses the hw-uuid, FC13 doesn't (don't know about 12 since I've skipped a cycle)
Comment 1 G.Wolfe Woodbury 2010-05-16 00:27:42 EDT
Further investigation and preusal of the sources shows that the hw-uuid file moved from /etc/sysconfig to /etc/smolt/hw-uuid.

putting the hw-uuid file in the right place solves the problem.
