Description Trevin Beattie 2008-02-24 18:31:59 EST
Description of problem: I performed a trial upgrade from FC6 to FC9-Alpha on a virtual machine. Besides the problem with the /boot partition not being upgraded (bug #434716), I'm finding that many packages were not properly upgraded at all -- the old packages are still listed in the rpm database, and many of the new packages are missing dependencies. The first problem I'm seeing is that X will not start because xorg-x11-server-Xorg was not upgraded but some of the drivers were, causing a version mismatch. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-126.96.36.199-1 How reproducible: Only tried once so far; the upgrade takes about an hour. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install FC6 using the default partition layout and most package groups. You may need at least 10GB of disk space. 2. Boot the FC9 Alpha install DVD and upgrade the existing installation. 3. Reboot the FC9 Alpha install DVD again, copy the files from /boot on the root partition to the boot partition (see bug #434716), and add the new kernel to grub.conf. 3. Reboot. Actual results: X will not start. The log shows: (II) LoadModule: "kbd" (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/kbd_drv.so (II) Module kbd: vendor="X.Org Foundation" compiled for 188.8.131.52, module version = 1.2.2 Module class: X.Org XInput Driver ABI class: X.Org XInput driver, version 2.0 (EE) module ABI major version (2) doesn't match the server's version (0) (II) UnloadModule: "kbd" (II) Unloading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/kbd_drv.so (EE) Failed to load module "kbd" (module requirement mismatch, 0) 'rpm -qf /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/kbd_drv.so' shows: xorg-x11-drv-keyboard-1.1.0-2.1 xorg-x11-drv-keyboard-1.2.2-3.fc9 'rpm -V xorg-x11-drv-keyboard-1.2.2-3.fc9' shows: Unsatisfied dependencies for xorg-x11-drv-keyboard-1.2.2-3.fc9.i386: xorg-x11-server-Xorg >= 184.108.40.206 'rpm -q xorg-x11-server-Xorg' shows: xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-47.fc6 Expected results: xorg-x11-drv-keyboard-1.1.0-2.1 should have been removed. xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.1.1-47.fc6 should have been upgraded to xorg-x11-server-Xorg-220.127.116.11-0.18.20080107.fc9. Likewise all existing packages which have newer versions should have been upgraded and the old version removed. Additional info:

Can you attach /var/log/anaocnda.log and /root/upgrade.log?

Created attachment 295762 [details] Set of log files following the failed upgrade Yeah, but it's several megabytes long, and I didn't see anything in it that looked useful...
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-02 12:27:42 EST
Did you have SELinux enabled on the system before doing the upgrade?
Comment 5 Trevin Beattie 2008-03-02 16:42:01 EST
SELinux Setting: Disabled
Comment 6 Jeremy Katz 2008-03-02 16:50:16 EST
If you have a snapshot and can try, can you try adding 'selinux=0' to the kernel command line when you boot the installer to do the upgrade? I suspect that this has returned (... or our detection of SELinux being disabled doesn't work against FC6 for some reason)
Comment 7 Trevin Beattie 2008-03-08 16:46:08 EST
I managed to bypass bug #434716 by manually mounting /mnt/sysimage/boot from VT2 while anaconda was checking installed package information for dependencies. By this time it had already overwritten /etc/fstab, so I re-added the entry for /boot as well. The upgrade got as far as "finishing the upgrade process", where it got stuck for at least half an hour on package 1201 out of 1202. Finally an exception occurred: INFO : moving (1) to step postinstallconfig INFO : moving (1) to step instbootloader INFO : vg VolGroup00, size is 16032, pesize is 32768 CRITICAL: anaconda 18.104.22.168 exception report Traceback (most recent call first): File "/usr/lib/booty/bootloaderInfo.py", line 759, in writeGrub f.write('# root %s\n' % self.grubbyPartitionName(bootDevs)) File "/usr/lib/booty/bootloaderInfo.py", line 1187, in write justConfig | (not self.useGrubVal)) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/bootloader.py", line 209, in writeBootLoader justConfigFile, anaconda.intf) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 209, in moveStep rc = stepFunc(self.anaconda) File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 132 in gotoNext self.moveStep() File "/usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 652, in run anaconda.dispatch.gotoNext() File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1065, in <module> anaconda.intf.run(anaconda) IndexError: list index out of range On reboot, I was met with the "grub> " CLI prompt. Turns out that the grub.conf file had been truncated. So I created a bare-bones configuration from scratch and tried booting again. On the positive side, there were much fewer errors this time around. The upgrade log is much shorter this time. There's also an anaconda dump. It seems most packages were successfully updated. Only a few packages failed verification, including a few system packages, some packages from Fedora Extras, and one or two custom packages.

I think this should be fixed for the preview release. There were a few places in booty that were ... "confused" as far as what bootDevs meant but we've gone through and at least in theory cleaned them all up
Comment 11 Jon Stanley 2008-04-14 21:35:18 EDT
Just did a FC6->F9 upgrade and it seems to be fine - boots into X, etc, no need to copy stuff around, etc Closing
Comment 12 Trevin Beattie 2008-04-18 02:15:35 EDT
I don't see where I would get the preview release, but I finally got the beta release downloaded (after a whole lot of network problems -- http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=64926) and tried another upgrade. It failed again -- anaconda crashed during the last package of "finishing the upgrade process". Two dozen old FC6 packages were left after rebooting, but on inspection it looks like there were no new versions of any of these packages except avahi, and the upgrade.log shows that there was a segmentation fault during the %postun(avahi-0.6.11-6.fc6) scriplet.
