Description Paul Whalen 2013-06-13 21:04:17 UTC
Description of problem:
When installing a system using 'console=ttyAMA0,115200' in the pxeboot config the resulting installed system does not include the boot arg. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. begin a pxeboot installation including the following boot arg:
append console=ttyAMA0 ip=eth0:dhcp ks=http://

Actual results:
After installation the system will not include the boot arg:
append: root=UUID=f28329a8-cdc0-48ab-95f7-8a331ee10e9a vconsole.font=latarcyrheb-sun16 rd.lvm=0 vconsole.keymap=us rd.luks=0

Expected results:
'console=ttyAMA0' in the boot args

Additional info:
When '--append="console=ttyAMA0,115200" ' is added to the kickstart, system includes the expected boot argument. eg:
bootloader --extlinux --append="console=ttyAMA0,115200"
