Anaconda dump

Anaconda dumped this file and suggested that I file a bug report.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2004-11-15 16:09:28 UTC
What did you select as your partitioning options?

Comment 3 Harold Naparst 2004-11-15 16:27:41 UTC
Manually partition with Disk Druid.  Keep existing data, do not format.
Partitions are /boot (ext3), / (ext3), and swap.  

The workaround is to reformat the partitions, losing all data.  Not
much of a workaround for people trying to upgrade.

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2004-11-15 16:36:05 UTC
I don't actually see a partition being mounted as / in the dump.  Can
you try again and make sure that you select one to be /?

Comment 5 Harold Naparst 2004-11-15 18:10:58 UTC
I've already installed it, so I'm not going to go back and re-install
in order to make it crash.  It might be that the label on the
partition was not assigned correctly in the Disk Druid step.  In order
to reproduce this, set the label on / to something else, like "FC3"
and then try to upgrade in Disk Druid, keeping all data.  

The install procedure could be a little more robust, checking the
user's choices to make sure the correct mount points have been chosen
and that the labels are correct.

However, the real question is whether an upgrade can be done at all. 
In order to install FC3, I had to do a clean install.

This was fixed in CVS a week or three ago.
