Description William Murray 2008-05-19 04:06:38 EDT
Description of problem: preupgrade F8->F9 did not install stage2.img due to lack of disk in /boot (That must be common!) Then the actual upgrade could not get stage2.img due to the corporate firewall. This was true despite setting the correct proxy. Therefore install stopped. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 8 to 9 How reproducible: 100% Steps to Reproduce: 1. preupgrade 2. reboot, try to upgrade 3. put proxy in to obtain stage2.img Actual results: Failed to download. no upgrade Expected results: upgrade. Additional info: System has now been upgraded by moving it outside firewall. So I will have trouble testing this in future..

Once you reboot, you're out of preupgrade's hands and into the upgrade. So the lack of proxying support is an anaconda bug - see bug #125917. However, the warning about having too small a /boot partition needs to be more strongly worded, and more clear about what will happen if the user proceeds with the upgrade. We should also consider refusing to upgrade for people without enough room in /boot.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '8'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life. Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version, please add a comment here and someone will do it for you. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. The process we are following is described here: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-01-09 02:49:13 EST
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
