Exception in upgrade FC4 to FC5 test 3
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:25 EST
Description of problem:
Using DVD version of FC5 test 3 to update FC4 install on Acer Aspire 3003.
Sempron 1.6Ghz 256MB, 30G space left on FC4 root partition.
Upon clicking next after selecting "Upgrade Existing Installation", anaconda
thinks for a few seconds and then produces window saying exception has occurred.
Looking at bug details, it seems anaconda has done all of the selecting for
which packages to upgrade but not got to upgrading any of them yet. The only
error I can see in the traceback is in FSSET.PY which says there is
an "UnboundLocalError" and "errnum" not found.
I have tested the media with both the SHA1SUM and the media test at the
beginning of the install, neither test comes back with any problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not component specific.
Every time I try.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert DVD FC5 Test 3 media and boot
2. Select graphical install, English language, UK Keyboard
3. Select upgrade existing installation, press next.
Window appears with exception occurred. Installation cannot continue.
Have option to debug but I have no experience with debugging.
Installation should continue and upgrade FC4 to FC5
Can you provide teh complete traceback you received?

Sorry it took so long. Wasn't aware of where the install output was going. :-)
Could you attach the /etc/fstab file from the system you're trying to install?
Looks like we're trying to mount an NTFS filesystem for some reason.
Sorry, yes, I do mount an NTFS partition. Will remove this line from fstab for
The problem here is that we're assuming we can mount any filesystem of type
auto, which of course we can't do in this case. But we can at least raise a
more useful exception.
