Description of problem:

When running anaconda, the installer fails immediately after starting the
package dependency checks and does not give any idea of what the error was ...

How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.  Download tree from link above to (in my case) /home/ia64 on local machine. 
2.  yum-arch -ls /home/ia64 
3.  install and build python-urlgrabber-2.9.6-2.src.rpm 
4.  minor edits to mk-images and mk-images.ia64 required (missing some of  
    the definitions below) 
5.  ln -sf /home/ia64/Fedora /home/ia64/RedHat 
5.  /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/pkgorder /home/ia64 ia64 
> /home/ia64/pkgorder-ia64.txt 
6.   /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/genhdlist 
--fileorder /home/ia64/pkgorder-ia64.txt /home/ia64 
7.   /usr/lib/anaconda-runtime/buildinstall 
--pkgorder /home/ia64/pkgorder-ia64.txt --release "Prarit" --product "Prarit" 
--version 5.0 /home/ia64 

Actual results:

Dependency check fails.

Expected results:

You're not generating your tree properly.  Please see

Also, please try using the actual generated images instead of feeling you have
to do your own.  If the default ones are failing for some reason, that's what
should be fixed.

There are no default images -- I'll be getting together with Dave later this
week ;).  I'm just trying to see if Fedora works on ia64 :)
