Description of problem:
mknod doesn't work in the shell during the installer or during rescue mode
because PYTHONPATH isn't being set. So when mknod looks for the isys module
which is in /usr/lib/anaconda it isn't found.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot disc1 cd
2. Type linux rescue at the boot: prompt
3. Skip mount
4. mknod /tmp/hde1 b 33 1
Actual Results: Traceback about inability to import the module isys
Expected Results: It to make /tmp/hde1
isys is actually in /mny/runtime/usr/lib/anaconda
I tried export PYTHONPATH=/mnt/runtime/usr/lib/anaconda in the shell during
the install and it made mknod work.
Noticed this when I was testing something before I left for the holidays, so
it's already fixed in CVS
