Description Răzvan Sandu 2007-01-12 07:52:20 EST
Description of problem:


Since apparently upgrading to x86_64 from an i386 installation gets to a "kernel
panic" situation (please see bug #218571), anaconda should:

- check if this is the case and forbid the upgrade
- manage to perform a clean upgrade in the described situation.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Perform a clean install of Fedora Core 6, i386 version, on 64-bit hardware.
2. Use the x86_64 CD to perform an upgrade over the i386 installation.
Actual results:
After reboot, we get a "kernel panic" situation.

Expected results:
Upgrade should get a clean x86_64 OR, if technically not feasible, be forbidden
from the start by anaconda.
