Description Joachim Backes 2006-04-04 07:03:15 UTC
Description of problem:
I tried to update my FC4 installation to FC5. The update fails if /var/cache or
/var/cache/yum are symlinks to a fs on another partition (I made this for disk
space reasons). If excanging this symlink by a real directory /var/cache/yum
on the boot partition, the update runs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Starting from the
fc5 install cd.

How reproducible: Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. See description.
Actual results: Update fails.

Expected results: Update is running.

How does the upgrade fail?  Does it give you an exception traceback?  If so,
please attach the complete dump to this bug report.

Comment 4 Joachim Backes 2007-06-12 04:51:52 UTC
Having no more FC4 installations, so I can't reproduce the bug.

May be closed.
