FC5->FC6 upgrade hangs at innd
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:53 EST
Description of problem: While upgrading FC5 to FC6 the upgrade hung while
working in innd. No errors were reported. Had to reboot to escape from it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): n/a
How reproducible: hard to tell - I don't know it its specific to my
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start from a fully updated FC5 system with innd installed but not configured
2. Upgrade to FC6 with veridied CDs.
Actual results: Installer hangs on disk 3 of 5
Expected results: Ditto
NOTE: The "Version" and "Component" boxes are garbage becaiuse they don't work
with Opera 9.10:
"Version" is apparently a text entry box containing "unspecified" and can't be
changed. "Component" is the same, but its two lines can be selected individually
but not changed. I was surprised the bug report was accepted because the next
page said to go back and supply a component name.
This is being input via Mozilla, which shows them as drop-down lists, but they
are still not alterable to anything sensible.
Can you switch ttys when this occurs?
There's not really anything we can do here. Even if we identified a kernel
problem, there's no way to get an updated kernel onto the install media.
The only thing I can suggest is to upgrade to a newer release.
