No this is a Dell Precision Desktop. I don't remember specifically installing 
the dracut-olpc rpm. However I removed it and still the same result

No probably installed when I installed all the system-config rpms. Removed it 
also but still the same result.

I get the flashing cursor in the top left hand of th screen. Then I get a 
message "Hello (deployment people of the ) world" and then I get the traceback 
error.

As this is only a test box I might do a reinstall and see what differences 
there is in the installed rpms.

The real strange thing is that nobody else seems to be having this error and 
it started with the christmas day update to the kernel

Thanks,

Tony
