Description Stephen Walton 2000-08-23 18:50:24 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.
Comment 2 Stephen Walton 2000-08-24 17:48:20 EDT
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.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-09 15:46:34 EDT
I think you mean bug 16833.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2000-10-09 15:47:52 EDT
This is related to bug 17932, which is an enchancement request to handle this
situation more gracefully.
