Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2011:0530 normal SHIPPED_LIVE anaconda bug fix and enhancement update 2011-05-18 17:44:52 UTC

Description Martin Banas 2011-03-31 06:07:14 UTC
Description of problem:
If the installation is started with fips=1 kernel option, anaconda should install dracut-fips package by default (also in minimal installation).
See comment #20:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=691419#c20

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6.1-20110330.n.0
anaconda-13.21.108-1.el6

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start RHEL6 installation with fips=1 kernel option
2. Proceed to stage2, select "minimal" packageset group
3. Finish the installation
4. # rpm -q dracut-fips

Actual results:
dracut-fips package is not installed when fips=1 is provided on kernel command line

Expected results:
According to Stephan Mueller ( https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=691419#c20 ) this package should be installed unconditionally when fips=1 is given.
