Multi-level mount point causes install to fail
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:28:55 EDT
During 7.0 (and 6.2) install, when assigning mount points to two existing
vfat partitions, I used a multi-level mount point (read: I assigned the
FAT32 partition that Win2k was in to /balrog/Win2000). The installer
accepted this perfectly happily, but when it got to the point of actually
installing packages (a few minutes and screens later), anaconda (the first
package I was installing) blew up (refused to install). I power-cycled, and
on the next try didn't assign mount points to the Win32 partitions, all
worked fine. Did someone do a mkdir rather than a mkdir -p somewhere?
Sounds like duplicate of Bug #18032, but I'm not 100% sure.
Possible, but I'm also not positive. In Bug #18032, the install was default, with the only (admitted) tweek that all packages were selected. I'd expect that
in that case there wouldn't be a multi-level mount point. We'll see what the RH guys think....
Sounds like a dupe - check your traceback against 18032 and if its different
reopen this bug.
