Description Jos Vos 2012-07-25 09:26:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Running pungi on an updated F17 system with lorax-17.26-1.fc17.x86_64 generates an install DVD where anaconda won't recognize any image type and runs into a Python exception at the second screen.

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

This patch seems to solve this problem:


Please fix the F17 lorax, as pungi can't be used anymore without this manual fix now.

Comment 2 John Reiser 2012-08-09 14:41:48 EDT
Eventually this bug (and duplicates) also will hit the problem that you must exclude systemd-44-8.fc17 and systemd-sysv-44-8.fc17 because of a bug in that version.  Supposedly systemd-186 and above for Fedora 18 contain the fix, but there has been no backport (about 4 weeks so far).  After that, some people run into grub2-install not present because the .ks file omitted "@anaconda-tools".  See the thread "F17 updates broke anaconda PNG image handling" beginning July 24 in devel@lists.fedoraproject.org.

[Yes, some of this is redundant, but it may help those who wish to make progress while various pieces are not yet working.]
