I added:

name=Fedora $releasever - $basearch

And got the following errors:

   Updating   : coreutils-8.15-5.fc17.x86_64 
/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.T9mWTk: line 1: /usr/bin/grep: No such file or directory

   Updating   : filesystem-3-1.fc17.x86_64

filesystem-2.4.46-1.fc17.x86_64 was supposed to be removed but is not!

Now I get:

# ls -l /
-bash: /bin/ls: No such file or directory

Shutdown did not complete.  Boot now fails with:

dracut: Switching root
switch_root: failed to execute /etc/init: Permission denied
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

even with enforcing=0

Anyone want any postmortem info before I reinstall the VM?
