issues found in F-16 Alpha 20110830

using anaconda-16.15-1.fc16.dh.1 + dracut-013-6.fc16

Installation status: FAIL (Bug 733680)

  • (resolved in dracut-013-8.fc16) when number of CPUs > 1 then "unknown filesystem in squashfs.img" error appears - probably 735199
  • (resolved in dracut-013-7.fc16) even with 1 CPU I got boots when the CMSCONFFILE wasn't read because CMSDASD device wasn't ready ("could not set device online" error message)
  • VNC install requires "vnc" in the parameters file
  • Bug 733680 - DBusException: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ChildExited: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1
  • Bug 735026 - loader crashes when trying to install in vnc mode

issues found in F-16 Alpha 20110901

using anaconda-16.16-1.fc16.dh.1 + dracut-013-7.fc16 + systemd-35-1.fc16

Installation status: FAIL (Bug 733680)

issues found in F-16 Alpha 20110907

using anaconda-16.16-1.fc16.dh.1 + dracut-013-8.fc16 + systemd-35-1.fc16 + rawhide-20110831 tree

Installation status: FAIL (Bug 733680)

issues found in F-16 Beta 20110919

using anaconda-16.16-1.fc17.dh.1 (contains fix for Bug 733680) + actual rawhide tree (pre-beta)

Installation status: FAIL (Bug 739620)

  • Bug 739620 - ValueError: No description available for dasd
  • Bug 739828 - filtering screen shows loop devices
  • Bug 739846 - Traceback when starting the installation with "vnc" parameter on s390x

issues found in F-16 Beta 20110920

using anaconda-16.18-1.fc16.dh.1 (contains fix for Bug 733680) + actual rawhide tree (pre-beta)

Installation status: FAIL (Bug 739620)

  • Bug 740341 - inconsistent output of dmsetup table (fixed in lvm2-2.02.86-5.fc16.dh.1)
  • I have possible fix for bug 739620, so the installation now fails on installing the bootloader

issues found in F-16 Beta 20110922

using anaconda-16.18-1.fc16.dh.2 (contains fixes for Bug 733680 and Bug 739620) + actual rawhide tree (pre-beta)

  • Bug 740576 - root is set to kernel file (anaconda-written zipl.conf contains "root=/boot/vmlinuz-3.1.0-0.rc6.git0.0.fc16.s390x")
  • no "reboot" button/screen at the end of installation, last screen has "installing bootloader", which IS installed

issues found in F-16 Beta 20110923

using anaconda-16.18-1.fc16.dh.3 (contains fixes for bugs 733680, 739620, 740576) + actual rawhide tree (pre-beta)

  • bug 740858
    • last entry in anaconda.log is "07:04:30,454 INFO anaconda: Writing autokickstart file" and /root/anaconda-ks.cfg isn't created yet
    • with the reipl step in anaconda being a no-op I get to the final Congrats&reboot anaconda screen
  • anaconda finishes successfully and the installed system boots with the workaround (= no reipl step) applied

general anaconda/lorax/pungi/... issues

  • (upstream commited) the addrsize utility isn't built in anaconda any more and thus lorax fails after writing kernel.img and initrd.img => moved to lorax - patch
  • (upstream commited) anaconda dropped the mk-s390-cdboot tool in version 16 => remove relevant code also from lorax - patch
  • pungi shouldn't include s390 compat packages in the installer image/repo - patch
