Description of problem:
Attempting an upgrade on an FC1 system with logical volume groups
causes the intaller to force a reboot, with no options to proceed or
correct the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
When attempting to upgrade a FC1 system to FC3 Test 3, the installer
(both graphical and text) will fail with the error "Invalid Mount
Point" when attempting the upgrade if the /home directory is part of a
logical volume group. The error message says something about failing
to mount /opt/home, and claims that it contains a faulty path.
The text screen gives the following error:
isys.py:mount() - going to mount /dev/Home/home on /mnt/sysimage/home
trying to mount hda6 on /opt/home
and then the installer forces me to reboot.
This may also have caused some data corruption on /home. However, that
is something that I have not been able to reproduce, and should (if
true) probably be a seperate bug in any event.
What are the contents of your /etc/fstab?
