screenshot showing the issue
Description of problem:
I do get dracut-pre-pivot errors (se screenshot) when booting
F18 TC3 iso.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 18 TC3
Steps to Reproduce:
Seems like the install DVD composer restricted the dracut kernel modules. Either it should omit the dracut network module (--omit network) or the nfs module (--omit nfs), or not restrict the kernel modules.
The module errors are actually from anaconda-dracut.

F18b TC4, still happening
There is an additional message from dracut-pre-pivot:
"dracut-pre-pivot: cp: cannot stat '/etc/cmdline' : no such file or directory"
should it be '/proc/cmdline' ?

This is a non-fatal error. We are copying cmdline config files, which can be /etc/cmdline or files in /etc/cmdline.d/ from the dracut environment over to /run/ for use within the actual root.
I can put a test in here to only attempt the copy if /etc/cmdline exists, or just do the copy quietly, but it's non-fatal.
These are now silent with commit c1235790
I still have the same errors as same as comment 3 with TC7.
I still have the same errors as comment 3 with TC7.
With most recent updates I am still seeing four dracut errors that flash by too fast on the screen to record. Grepping dmesg gives me nothing usable to report. Among the dracut problems are errors stating 'wrong fs' and so forth. I will try to pause the scrolling and try to write the messages in full shortly.
The errors I am now seeing are those at: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=860525
