Known issues and bugs with current DICE FC3

Install process

  1. There is a significant pause during the initial install stage while starting up udev. A suitable fix is being worked on.
  2. named error messages pop up while second stage install is installing RPMs, complaining about not having permission to write to the zonefiles. No known ill effect yet. George ??? Believed fixed.
  3. The updaterpms transaction fails on install but continues on regardless quite happily on reboot. This is because of two badly behaved FC3 RPMs which will require fixing upstream or locally. No known ill effect.
  4. A manual reboot is required after the second stage install Fixed.
  5. SCSI installs have yet to be tested. SCSI installs now work.
  6. The installroot (and perhaps the installbase) occasionally hangs - hitting any key will unhang. A /dev/random entropy problem is suspected. Will be fixed.


  1. Certain things don't work properly unless you copy over at least the /etc/skel/{.bash*,.gtkrc} files to your new NFS homedirs. (This pending the EdENV bash startup technology)
  2. The graphical GDM theme contains black user feedback text on a dark part of the background image when you make a mistake (user/pass).
  3. When logging in via ssh, you need to enter your password. To be fixed - Tim/Carwyn/Simon? This is because the machine doesn't have a Kerberos host key. Fixing this will require the porting of lcfg_kerberos and kdcregister
