Description Gilboa Davara 2006-09-26 17:34:24 EDT
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):
Rawhide 27092006.

How reproducible:
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.
Actual results:
Anaconda throws an exception while trying to upgrade grub.conf.

Expected results:
Working boot configuration.

Additional info:
Attached crash log.

This is happening because we're not mounting your /boot -- is it listed in
Comment 3 Gilboa Davara 2006-09-27 16:04:18 EDT
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
