Description Andrew Zschetzsche 2005-04-12 02:16:18 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050324 Firefox/1.0.2

Description of problem:
After an install of FC4test2-ppc, when the computer is rebooted it hangs because when anaconda wrote the fstab file, the root partition was given a disk label to reference, and the startup process couldn't find it.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC4test2-ppc
2. Reboot
3. 
  

Actual Results:  The computer hanged and presented a screen requesting root maintence.

Expected Results:  A normal bootup.

Additional info:

I'm not sure if it's a poorly written fstab file, or if it's that the disk label did'nt get set by the format process.

Can you provide the fstab?
Comment 2 Andrew Zschetzsche 2005-04-13 02:59:59 EDT
I'm extremely sorry but I've already modified it and didn't save a backup of the
orginal.

Hindsight is 20/20.
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-04-13 11:32:18 EDT
Hmmm.  Can you provide /sbin/e2label for each of the partitions you were mounting?
Comment 4 Andrew Zschetzsche 2005-04-13 14:37:52 EDT
I'm really sorry, I already re-installed Yellow Dog Linux, but I'm pretty sure
it was /1.


I just saw that I didn't mention this before: the first line in the fstab was
something like:

LABEL=/1        ext3   ........

(and there may have been something like /dev/hda/ before it.)

Sorry, I hope I'm not wasting your time; I kinda feel like an a$$.  I guess I
could backup and install test2 again.....

I did an install from a rawhide snapshot, and /etc/fstab seemed to have been
written quite niely. Things just worked

Andrew, do you mind reinstalling test2, and seeing if you can reproduce it?
Also, give us more details about /dev/hda
Comment 7 Andrew Zschetzsche 2005-04-25 00:17:08 EDT
Well, I reinstalled FC4 Test2, allowing it to install over all existing
partitions.  This time everything "just worked."  Once it was booted into Gnome,
I looked at the fstab and the only partition referenced via a LABEL tag was
boot, correctly as "LABEL=/boot".

/dev/hda is just the standard Ultra ATA 12GB hard disk that shipped on the Blue
& White G3 Macintoshes.  Also, I think I have a revision 2 motherboard.  I'm
sure it's the master drive.  Past that, I don't know much about it.

Think this should be fixed now
