Description Roy Stogner 2007-06-01 11:28:51 EDT
Description of problem: After an upgrade from Fedora Core 6 to 7, lines corresponding to network mounted drives were missing from /etc/fstab; e.g.: files:/files/u0 /files/u0 nfs rw,hard,intr,rsize=32768,wsize=32768 0 0 was deleted. How reproducible: Unknown. The workstation in question has a PATA hard drive and so presumably had to have /etc/fstab rewritten to change "hda" to "sda" on filesystem and swap partitions. I'll be doing future upgrades on machines with SATA and SCSI drives as well; if the results differ I'll reply to this bug.

Even on SATA-based workstations where partition names already began with /dev/sd, my /etc/fstab files are being rewritten; the only change in those cases is that all NFS entries are removed.

Same thing here with NFS mount point ... Anaconda a little bit too zealous ;-)
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2007-06-07 17:03:08 EDT
This bug is now addressed by an updates image. It is available for download at: http://people.redhat.com/clumens/f7-updates.img Instructions for using updates disks are located at: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Updates If possible, please test this image out and report if it fixes your issue or not. Once we are confident that your issue is solved by this image, we are going to announce it more publicly. This fix may also be included in an updated anaconda package later for people who are making custom Fedora distributions. Thanks for your time.

The updates image works correctly on every computer I've tried.
