Description Mark Hamzy 2011-08-24 21:44:13 UTC
Description of problem:
Booting Fedora-20110817-ppc64-netinst.iso with the following options

boot: linux vnc=1 serial

I see the following in the VNC window:

An error occurred when attempting to load an installer interface component.
className = KeyboardWindow

Also, on the terminal session, I see:

21:36:27 loading interface component KeyboardWindow
21:36:27 Traceback (most recent call last):

Does a firstboot package exist in your ppc64 tree?  If not, there's the problem.  If so, how are you composing the install images?  Is it with the standard lorax, or have you needed to modify it in some way?

Comment 2 Karsten Hopp 2011-08-25 15:06:52 UTC
We need to create the install images with the treebuilder branch of lorax. Otherwise we won't be able to boot at all as PPC machines can't handle the huge initrd.
A quick check reveals that firstboot is missing in ramdisk.tmpl in that branch.

Yeah, this is wwoods being a little over-eager in his deletions.  It comes from d341587814ab9b98342dcaa50bdfc27ad520cc6b.
