Description Phillip Jones 2000-03-29 08:07:06 EST
When upgrading from 6.1 to 6.2, if you are installing from the local HDD
and the files are located on a partition that is listed in /etc/fstab, the
install fails.

For example:

I have my install tree on /dev/sdb1. When you tell the installer where the
install tree is, it mounts this partition so that it can get to the files.

BUT when the installer looks for packages to upgrade it mounts all
of the partitions in /etc/fstab - Because /dev/sdb1 is my fstab (it's
mounted on /proj), the installer trys to mount the partition again in a
different place. Obviously this fails, as it's already mounted.
