Nightly boot.iso fails to boot

Posted by adamwill on June 25, 2014

Recent nightly Rawhide boot.iso network install images are failing to boot due to a bug in util-linux. The fix has already been identified and pushed upstream, and should work its way downstream into Fedora soon. This doesn’t appear to be affecting the nightly live images.

Slightly older boot.iso images, if you have one lying around, may not suffer from that bug, but probably do suffer from this one, which is caused by metacity (the window manager used by non-live install images) failing to run due to excessive pruning of the anaconda environment. A fix for that bug was also pushed today. With any luck, once the util-linux fix comes downstream, we’ll get working nightlies again.
