Description Prarit Bhargava 2005-06-21 13:04:23 UTC
Description of problem: 
Using FC ia64 devel to build an installation to test on Itanium box.   
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
Current from here 
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: 
Attempted to use resultant boot.img's kernel and initrd to net install system. 
Install fails with: 
Running anaconda, the Prarit system installer - please wait...                  
Error bad argument --virtpconsole: unknown option 
:install exited abnormally  
sending termination signals...done 
sending kill signals...done 
disabling swap... 
unmounting filesystems... 
        /mnt/runtime done 
        disabling /dev/loop0 
        /proc done 
        /dev/pts done 
        /sys done 
        /tmp/ramfs done 
        /selinux done 
you may safely reboot your system 
Expected results: 
Install should continue -- virtpconsole is a valid argument?
