We need a way to restrict the allowed metadata formats, s390 is only supported on ECKD DASD. > Issue: > - When a new partition is created, it's name is shown strangely: > LINUX.V^G^G^G^G^G^G.PART0001.NATI Looks like a problem in parted. > After committing the changes and restarting partman, it looks more > normal though: > LINUX.V0X0121.PART0001.NATIVE > (Not sure where the 0121 comes from; the DASD I created the partition > on was 0.0.0122!) This is a name which is defined on disklabel creation. Maybe parted does something weird there, let me check. > * Base installation - kernel selection > This is an existing issue, but worth mentioning anyway. > Selection of the default kernel could be improved for S/390.

The problem is that -s390x is sorted before -s390, why? > One thing to be aware of is that a new hardware configuration mechanism > has been added for 2.6 kernels using the sysconfig-hardware package.

And it adopts the ability to rename interfaces. udev will not longer install that on s390 with the next upload as it is plain broken. Bastian -- Captain's Log, star date 21:34.5...
