I thought new packages had already been pushed to F11 to allow this, so
you shouldn't have had to recompile anything.
I haven't heard of this. I'll switch to f11 but didn't want to use the default install dvd because of the grub-on-ext3 problem. Even if new packages have been pushed to f11 repos the install media haven't been respin. Therefore I need ot do it thia way.

pungi is the tool used to build install images.

I'll try it. thanks.

I finally did it. After trying all version of anaconda from anaconda-12.0-1.fc12 to anaconda-12.7-1.fc12 (against the current f11 libs), they all gave me different sorts of errors.

At the end I just patched the anaconda- with the following commits and recompiled it.

commit 162c92b4838f9769f39b0c3a85f9c6e4a38a5913: x86 and EFI platforms can now have /boot on ext4.
commit 11266dabba490baf732b85ba76e2841e6ae17733: Default to /boot on ext4
commit 9e83e8a43f8a609c65c39c6de8cf1c341d3f31ec: Allow /boot on ext4 now that we have a grub that allows it

Now I have f11-install-dvd with grub (recompiled grub-0.97-59.fc11) on ext4 by default. It' works just fine.
