Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 10401
unable to upgrade from 6.1 to 6.2
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
Pentium II with 128M RAM and one EIDE 8g HD. It has
one ext2, one linux swap and one FAT32 partitions on it.
It is running fine with redhat 6.1.
I downloaded 6.2 to the ext2 partition and tried to do
an upgrade via Local Hard Disk. But it failed with
exception occurred ... -isys,mount .... Device or Resource busy.
It seems to me that upgrade will NOT work if the source and main
linux partition are the same. You are trying to mount the source
partition and the main linux partition, which will fail if there
are the same (device or resource busy?).
Next thing I tried was to copy the 6.2 download directory to
my FAT32 partition. The upgrade process seems to go further
this time. But still failed evantually with "no such file??".
Is installation from FAT32 supported?
I noticed while copying redhat 6.2 download to FAT32 that
there are errors like "can't create symlinks" (FAT32 doesn't
support that of course).
