what kind of problems do you see with the Power images?
On x86_64, and on earlier versions of Fedora, virtio-scsi drivers
were always added to the initramfs, even if the initial install
was done on virtio-blk. However for some reason with Fedora 25 on
POWER and with RHEL 7.3 on POWER (only), this is no longer the case.
Adding the virtio-scsi driver was a bunch of hassle. The bug for
The current problem is that the above dracut command does not always
run correctly. It's annoying to debug this stuff because
(a) the creation of the templates takes hours and
(b) nothing in %post is logged by default so you end up having to do
everything 2 or 3 times over (enabling logging in %post, running it,
diagnosing it, fixing it, repeat, then disable logging for the final
build), with each step taking hours.
So there's not anything I need help with at the moment, it's just
very, very tedious.
