Description Will Woods 2009-03-27 15:09:28 EDT
In Fedora 10 and earlier, there's a special case in yuminstall.py (see line 401 in current git) for handling "repo=hd:device:/path" when the system is booted with "preupgrade" on the commandline: (device, fstype, path) = m[3:].split(":") if flags.cmdline.has_key("preupgrade"): self._baseRepoURL = "file:///mnt/sysimage/%s" % path As you can see, the device name is discarded and yum is instructed to get its packages from the given path, on the mounted system. Hence preupgrades are booted with: preupgrade repo=hd::/var/cache/yum/preupgrade [etc] The new anaconda storage code needs to handle this special case, or provide another way for preupgrade to specify that the upgrade should get its packages from a certain path on the filesystem being upgraded - for example, "repo=file:///..."

dlehman had a plan for dealing with this that involved making an empty path resolve to a FileDevice.

Can you retest with anaconda-188.8.131.52-1 or later?
Comment 3 Will Woods 2009-04-16 13:17:55 EDT
I have an upgrade from F10->Rawhide (anaconda 184.108.40.206 IIRC) at the "Finishing upgrade process step." Everything seems have worked as expected.
