Description Alan Cox 2004-05-01 17:06:23 EDT
Reused an old x86-32 IDE disk in the dual opteron because the aacraid
driver is broken. When the installer ran it noticed an existing FC1
install and offered to upgrade it. Selecting yes flashed up some text
too fast to read, exited the installer and rebooted.

Selecting install works fine and does the expected.

Don't do that :-)
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-06 19:30:29 EDT
In fact, testing this here, I get told that the arch is incompatible
and asks what I want to do.  Are you sure you didn't select "No" to
the "are you sure you want to" question? (which then exits, a dialog
before doing so would probably be better but can't really add strings
right now)
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2004-05-07 12:43:49 EDT
Im sure I answered yes. Positively so. Whether text was some kind of
other error caused by it being only one disk of an old x86-32 install
I dont know. Anyway if it works for the normal case that sounds fine
to me, regardless of how/why it got fixed

Close ?
