if dracut would not pull in:

- cryptsetup-luks  
- device-mapper  
- dhclient  
- dmraid  
- lvm2
- mdadm  
- plymouth

they might be missing, if required. So either anaconda should pull them in, if required to setup any disk device or the component should be in the core group and installed every time.

Comment 2 Hans de Goede 2010-06-08 12:01:58 UTC
I don't see either dhclient (should be required by dracut-network) or plymouth (no idea) as anaconda's problem, the rest I've a patch for.

Comment 3 Alexander Todorov 2010-06-08 13:05:36 UTC
Harald,
the 0531.1 build is old. Latest one is 0603.1. The bug you describe is 598509 - I've used the same tree and same steps to reproduce as you when originally filed. lvm package was in the optional repository for WebServer and not pulled in during installation that's why boot failed.

All the dependencies are now required by dracut-004-20.1.el6, see:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=598509#c12

With the latest build (0603.1) WebServer minimal installation in KVM works as expected.

This is why I filed the bug! The requirements in dracut should not be needed.

You cannot deinstall dracut. So, all the requirements of dracut cannot be removed from the system. 

There is no need to install lvm, dmraid, mdadm, dhclient, etc. on every system!!!

dracut should be pulling in plymouth; it's an initramfs component common to every initramfs.

right, it will, although initscripts might also require plymouth to work properly.

Comment 8 Harald Hoyer 2010-06-11 13:12:11 UTC
So, these are left to be pulled in by anaconda on demand
- cryptsetup-luks  
- device-mapper  
- dmraid  
- lvm2
- mdadm

Comment 9 Hans de Goede 2010-06-12 13:02:13 UTC
This is fixed in anaconda-13.21.51-1, moving to modified.

Comment 11 Pavel Holica 2010-07-07 09:32:32 UTC
Verified on RHEL6.0-20100701.3 WebServer and ComputeNode x86_64

Comment 12 releng-rhel@redhat.com 2010-11-10 19:47:10 UTC
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
