Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2005:486 qe-ready SHIPPED_LIVE redhat-config-netboot bug fix update 2005-09-28 04:00:00 UTC

Description Eric Paris 2005-04-04 13:52:06 UTC
Description of problem:  The initrd created by redhat-config-netboot on a x86_64
system uses the 32bit shared libraries.  All of the binary executables are 64bit
and require the 64bit shared libs in order to work.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):  Latest RHEL3
appears to be broken

How reproducible:  Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Create an initrd on a x86_64 for a x86_64
2.  Watch nothing work
Actual results:  32bit shared libraries are installed in /lib

Expected results:  64bit shared libraries should be installing in /lib64

Additional info:  This can be fixed by removing the 32bit libs, adding the 64bit
libs, and then making sure /lib and /lib64 are linked.

Comment 3 Jason Vas Dias 2005-06-09 16:27:05 UTC
This bug is fixed with redhat-config-netboot-0.1.16+, which should be
in RHEL-3-U6, but which meanwhile can be downloaded from:
Please try out this version and let me know of any issues - thank you.
