Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 208193
Anaconda dies while trying upgrade boot/grub.conf on existing FC5 installation.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:44 EST
Description of problem:
I'm trying upgrade an existing i386 installation of FC5 using 20060927 rawhide.
The upgrade itself seem to proceed just fine, (Though I did encounter BZ 208093
and 208094 during the previous installation attempts) but when it tries to
finalize the installation by upgrading the preexisting grub configuration,
Anaconda throws an exception and dies.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Only tried once.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC5 with boot on a different partition.
2. Full update.
3. Boot using rawhide rescue CD.
4. Manually mount /boot.
5. Try a full upgrade.
Anaconda throws an exception while trying to upgrade grub.conf.
Working boot configuration.
Attached crash log.

Anaconda crash log
This is happening because we're not mounting your /boot -- is it listed in
Yes it is:
$ cat /etc/fstab | grep boot
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 noauto,defaults 1 2
... I should point out that Anaconda failed to mount boot
(https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=208093) so I mounted it by
hand into /mnt/sysimage/boot
Same root cause at least, so going to consolidate
