Description of problem:
The presence of a bind mount in /etc/fstab causes anaconda to fail to mount
them, aborting an attempt to upgrade.
/l/scratch/mirror/mirror /l/mirror ext3 bind 0 0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add a bind mount to /etc/fstab
2.Boot the installer and choose to upgrade
Actual Results: It fails to mount it and aborts.
Expected Results: It should do a bind mount, or at least ignore it.
Fixed in CVS (poke me if you want an update disk, or you should just be able to
grab fsset.py from cvs/rawhide anaconda)
'frad the fix didn't work :-(
It still fails to mount and opens a window mentioning the problem. Last I see
in VT3 is a message from isys.py:mount claiming it's going to attempt to mount
it. Sorry that it took me so long to test it :-(
Does this work with current trees or not?
It works, yay! Thanks,
