Re: No i386 images in rawhide,

Ahhah, this might be an all-important clue:
* Wed Apr  1 2009 Jakub Jelinek <jakub redhat com> 2.9.90-12
- update from trunk
- configure with --enable-experimental-malloc

Note "experimental malloc", Apr 1st is the first known occurrence
of what appears to be memory corruption, and except for glibc, you
have
essentially F10 system exhibiting this issue. It's at least a rather
promising lead if nothing else.

If you contact me off list I can give you a login to the device to
investigate if you like.

Thanks, I might contact you later depending on where the trail
leads :)

I didn't see a bug filed for this issue already.  I've filed the
following bug to track this issue.

Bug#494867 - "Rawhide i386 fails to boot - not syncing: No init found."

It's currently assigned to the 'rpm' component, but I suspect that will
change with further analysis.

FYI, it's glibc-2.9.90-12 i586-version that's broken, i686 version works
just fine. And there's apparently a bug in yum that makes it pick i586 over
i686 on some situations. Thanks to Jesse Keating for hunting it down.

So is it fixed in rawhide now or is it still pending?

glibc-2.9.90-14 has the experimental malloc disabled but apparently that is not the problem, i586 glibc is still broken:

bash-4.0# rpm -Uvh glibc-common-2.9.90-14.i586.rpm glibc-2.9.90-14.i586.rpm
