Description of problem:
After some file system problem I decided to upgrade from FC2 to FC4. I started a fresh installation, partitioned the HD, and while anaconda was gathering the informations required to start the installation, I got the error:
"error: Warning: The kernel was unable to re-read the partition table on /dev/hda (Device or resource busy). This means Linux won't know anything nothing about
the modifications you made until you reboot. You should reboot your computer before doing anything with /dev/hda." After this error I can dump a log file and the installation aborted.
If I start the installation using non-graphical mode, I got the same error, but I can ignore it; the processes finishes without trouble, but at the first boot the system is unable to start (kernel panic, try to use init=, etc.).
It's very annoying because I can install and run MS-Win instead...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2. Maybe you should need and HD with some problems?
