Description Ralf Corsepius 2009-05-29 09:31:59 EDT
Description of problem: preupgrade FC10->rawhide fails with nfs mounted /var/cache/yum When /var/cache/yum is nfs mounted, preupgrade successfully creates its /var/cache/yum/preupgrade, but the subsequent reboot fails, because /var/cache/yum/preupgrade is not available. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): preupgrade-1.1.0-1.fc10.noarch How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. use an nfs mounted /var/cache/yum 2. run preupgrade 3. reboot Actual results: Reboot fails Expected results: In an ideal world: Function (I.e. take existing /etc/fstab into account). Alternatively, preupgrade should at least issue an error message that preupgrade is unable to handle this kind of situations. Additional info: IMO, any directory below /var is not unlikely to be shared across networks (e.g. nfs mounted). May-be using a subdir of /tmp or /root instead of /var/cache/yum would be less likely to be victim of such issues.
Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2009-11-18 07:02:25 EST
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life. Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '10'. 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 10'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 10 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 2 Bug Zapper 2009-12-18 04:30:12 EST
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates.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.
