My install attempts are failing very early and it is the boot.iso's that
I am really testing right now. The pata module(s) for my controller card
has some issue that prevents anaconda from seeing my disks. With the
current typo I am not getting far enough to see if the latest pata_hpt3x2n
module is still failing (though I could tell I got that one instead of
pata_hpt37x). So I don't get to where I am actually installing rpms.
So I guess my question really should have been will there be a new boot.iso
with the fixed anaconda version. But I figured the answer would be the same
for both.
I thought about trying to do a binary patch to boot.iso since it might be
just changing a : to a ), but I figured it most likely be on a compressed
file system and things wouldn't be that simple.
I can't build a new boot.iso from the rpms, because I don't have any FC6
systems right now and there isn't a mock package for FC5 to build F7
stuff with.
Maybe the updates= does something different than I think does, so I'll
take a look at that and see if it might help.
