Description Gustavo Luiz Duarte 2014-10-07 20:45:48 UTC
Description of problem:
I installed Fedora 21 Alpha TC4 ppc64le on a P8 baremetal using a multipath disk. The disk was previously zeroed to avoid bug 1149862. The install completed successfully, but the installed system fails to boot, dropping to dracut shell.

I'm attaching the boot console log and /var/log/anaconda content.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 21.48.6-1

Based on all of the I/O errors in the console log you attached, this appears to be either a kernel problem or bad hardware.

*********** MASS BUG UPDATE **************

We apologize for the inconvenience.  There are a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale.  Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 21 kernel bugs.

Fedora 21 has now been rebased to 3.18.3-201.fc21.  Please test this kernel update (or newer) and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.

If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
