Description 4jaf4 1999-10-06 02:28:16 UTC
Select 'upgrade' as the installation type from the gtk-based install, and an error box pops up saying it failed to mount /dev/hda6 (this is an ntfs partition) due to an invalid option or something (i assume to the mount command) and this caused some kind of system error. No more info was apparent. I've got Rh 6.0 installed on /dev/hda7, but the install didn't make it past this error. I'm not sure if this means the other installation methods will freeze too, but I'm heading back to the text-based install method for now. The gtk-based install is looking good though guys.

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 5567 *** ------- Additional Comments From 10/09/99 21:05 ------- I had the same problem with the text installation. I only managed to upgrade after I switched the ntfs partition type to FAT16. I'm sure this is a bug; the installer tries to mount ntfs partitions as ext2fs filesystems.
