Description of problem:
NB: This is RAWHIDE not Fedora 18.
dracut goes into an infinite loop during boot. I updated
this machine to the latest version of Rawhide over the
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Happens when you try to boot.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Update a VM to the latest Rawhide on x86_64
2. Reboot it

> systemd 188-3.fc19
This is the culprit... "update" systemd and regenerate the initramfs
There's no systemd in Rawhide to update to:
$ rpm -q systemd
$ sudo yum update systemd
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto
No Packages marked for Update
I saw this a few days ago attempting to use any rc4, rc5, or rc6 kernel in Rawhide. But rc3 or below worked for me.
The rc7 non-debug kernel works for me, as does rc3. The rc4, rc5, and rc6 non-debug kernels, and kernel 3.6.0-0.rc6.git0.2.fc18.x86_64, go into the infinite loop.
Should also mention that all the non-debug kernels work fine on F18. The infinite loop only appears in Rawhide, and only with rc4, rc5, and rc6.
I'm not seeing this with any of the more recent kernels, either. This can probably be closed unless someone else is still seeing it.
