Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16832
An /etc/fstab which anaconda processes incorrectly
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
I attempted an update of a RedHat 6.1 system containing two IDE disks (hda
and hdc) striped together as a RAID-0 and a single SCSI disk (sda)
containing the OS. /etc/fstab contains:
/dev/sda7 / ext2 defaults 1 1
/dev/sda1 /boot ext2 defaults 1 2
/dev/sda5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/sda6 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy ext2 owner,noauto 0 0
/dev/cdrom /cdrom iso9660 noauto,user 0 0
/dev/md0 /cfdt ext2 defaults 1 2
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts
gid=5,mode=620 0 0
The update procedure failed in /usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py line 705 while
processing the line beginning with /dev/md0. I was able to complete the
update by commenting out this line before the update, but this should be
fixed, I'd think.
Please try to reproduce Brock.
May be related to bug number 16833.
As I noted under bug 16383, my RAID partitions are labeled as type 83, not
0xfd. My mistake. However, I'd think the entry for /dev/md0 in /etc/fstab
should not have caused anaconda to abort even in this case.
I think you mean bug 16833.
This is related to bug 17932, which is an enchancement request to handle this
situation more gracefully.
