Re: [PATCH anaconda/master] Add support to determine the ARM processor variety and select the correct kernel to install.

In the common case we're going to be running Anaconda under a Fedora kernel, so we should already have the kernel packaging name in the uname output from EXTRAVERSION - presumably we can just parse that out and use it to detemrine the package name? You'd want a way to manually override that for bootstrapping, but that might well be a desirable feature anyway.
Yes, we can parse the platform from a Fedora kernel, but I was concerned about the possible situation where we were not running a Fedora kernel. A command line option to override the platform sounds like a good option there, and it would also permit us to build images for a target other than the build host.

I would appreciate suggestions on how to implement the command line option. I think this would most likely be needed when running livemedia-creator to create disk images. Currently I create the images using:

 livemedia-creator \
     --make-disk --no-virt --image-only --keep-image \
     --ks=/root/f17-TS-hfp.ks

Should we add a command line option, like "--platform=...", to livemedia-creator? Would we also need a command line option for anaconda itself?


Thank you,
