Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 676578
i386 install DVD doesn't have PAE kernel and non-PAE kernel is always installed
Last modified: 2013-01-10 01:27:13 EST
Description of problem:
The PAE kernel should be installed on i386 when the CPU supports PAE. But this currently doesn't happen (a holdover from the split media issues with F14?). The 15 Alpha TC1 i386 DVD doesn't even include kernel-PAE.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
15 Alpha TC1
Moving to spin-kickstarts as a first step... it certainly won't be installed if it's not on the media.
Are we talking just the install media here? I would think for live spins we wouldn't want the PAE kernel?
The PAE kernel was excluded to get split cd media working last release. ;)
So, I assume we want to revert this now that we don't have any split media now?
Or are there also anaconda changes needed?
I changed the repo filters to not whack the kernel-PAE packages. Assuming whoever is building these is using these filters (rather than overriding them) I think the PAE kernels should start getting pulled in again.
kernel-PAE is still missing on the 15 Alpha TC2 i386 DVD.
I'd like to see what repo directives were actually used for the build. The upstream repo directive defaults were changed when I mentioned above. I just made a new spin-kickstarts with them last night. So it may be that the old version was still being used for TC2 because of that or because the build manually overrode the default and was still excluding kernel-PAE* or the problem may be something different.
Adding Dennis here. He should know what was used for TC2. Perhaps it needs a git pull to pick up these changes before RC1.
The PAE kernel is on the RC1 i386 DVD and installed for me on both a default and minimal install.
RC2 is ok as well. I'll close this and reopen if PAE disappears again.
