RH 6.1 to 7.0 upgrade: Can not start syslogger
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:29:42 EDT
I did an upgrade from 6.1 to 7.0
I used a cd from your web site -- iso image.
I asked to install what was needed to satisfy package dependencies.
On rebooting, at startup, it says: starting syslogger...and freezes.
After a long time out it says [failed] then locks up on mounting SMB files.
I had another version of 6.1 on an old slow disk and I am able to start it
and look at the 7.0 info: /tmp/upgrade.log is full of "/usr/lib/*** not
Also there are broken symlinks in /usr/lib
This does not seem to be a duplicate of other install bugs.
Created attachment 5059 [details]
Created attachment 5060 [details]
result of "ls -oc" in the bad /usr/lib directory
What would we need to do to reproduce this problem?
Created attachment 5143 [details]
contents of /var/spool/up2date
Created attachment 5144 [details]
the last /var/log/dmesg

I think that the problem relates to the state of the system before I tried the
upgrade. I had upgraded to some RH6.2 programs and even I think, a 7.0 program
or 2. I used update agent and ftp sites.
Try setting up a 6.1 sys updated with the updates I have in /var/spool/up2date
and see if you can reproduce it.
Passed to QA to reproduce.
hmmm ... I could not reproduce your problem ...
With a 6.1 Workstation install, I updated to the following packages (the closest
subset of your list that was easily available) ... after the upgrade, I was able
to boot into the 7.0 system, didn't freeze @ starting the system logger ...
please reopen if you have any other info you can provide to help reproduce this
... thanks for your report!
