mdadm&device-mapper not in core - dracut has deps on these tools
Last modified: 2016-04-26 12:44:48 EDT
Description of problem:
mdadm & device-mapper not in core group
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora 17 iso
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a kickstart with only base and core groups
2. kickstart will boot, but won't shutdown properly because dracut depends on mdadm and dmsetup dropping to a debug shell
using just base and core results in an image that doesn't shutdown
using just base and core should result in an image that can shutdown
base & core are default for JEOS images used in most cloud environments
# dracut -f
fix the issue?
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 17 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing dracut'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).
how do you do dracut -f with kickstart?
I should have stated in the earlier bug report I ran kickstart on a F16 host (to kickstart a f17 guest inside oz). As such I can't install dracut as you recommend.
I do have a question though, if dracut is changed for f17, in order to use this doesn't a new iso need to be generated?

This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
