Comment 1 RHEL Program Management 2010-05-20 12:06:33 UTC
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release.  Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux Major release.  This request is not yet committed for
inclusion.

Comment 2 Pavel Holica 2010-05-26 08:17:12 UTC
Ok, I've found now, that this happens only if previously installed system is mounted into /mnt/sysimage (without manual chroot-ing).

Comment 3 Pavel Holica 2010-05-26 08:22:44 UTC
The problem is in PATH variable, it contains /mnt/sysimage/bin, /mnt/sysimage/sbin, /mnt/sysimage/usr/bin/ ...

Comment 4 Martin Gracik 2010-05-26 15:18:10 UTC
The problem was with library paths on 64 bit architectures, fixed in version anaconda-13.21.48-1

Comment 6 Alexander Todorov 2010-05-31 12:11:16 UTC
With anaconda-13.21.48 there's no error message about the missing shared library. However the system will not shutdown:

In the rescue shell type: shutdown -h now  - nothing happens.

Martin,
is this related or a separate bug?
