Description Jan Stodola 2011-08-15 08:56:21 UTC
Description of problem:
When trying to manually configure devices in linuxrc, clearing device blacklist fails with error:

Scanning for available network devices... 
Autodetection found 0 devices. 
Note: There is a device blacklist active! (Clearing might take long)
c) clear blacklist, m) manual config, r) rescan, s) shell: 
Clearing device blacklist... 
/init: line 484: cio_ignore: command not found 
Device blacklist could not be cleared 
/init: line 491: nettable: bad array subscript 

The cio_ignore command is not included in the installation initramdisk:
[root@rtt1 62]# find | grep cio

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. do NOT use CMS config file
2. make sure that "cio_ignore=all,!0.0.0009" is included in parameter file
3. start the installation in the 3270 console
4. when asked, select "c" to clear blacklist
Actual results:
Clearing device blacklist... 
/init: line 484: cio_ignore: command not found 

Expected results:
cio_ignore included in initrd, blacklist is cleared in linuxrc

Tested on build RHEL6.2-20110823.1 using anaconda-13.21.134-1.el6.
cio_ignore is present in the intall initrd:
c) clear blacklist, m) manual config, r) rescan, s) shell: 
Enter 'exit' at the shell prompt to get back to the installation dialog. 
bash: cannot set terminal process group (-1): Inappropriate ioctl for device
bash: no job control in this shell 
bash-4.1# type cio_ignore
cio_ignore is /bin/cio_ignore 
bash-4.1# ls -l /bin/cio_ignore
