Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 226923
Upgrade fails to mount existing partition
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:56 EST
Description of problem:
I tried to test upgrades using an F7 test1 DVD. The installer aborted the
session because it couldn't mount one of the partitions listed in the current
(FC6) fstab - /mnt/hda3
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F7 test1 version
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to DVD
2. Select upgrade
Installation proceeds normally
I had to insert manually the pata_amd module - this has been noted in other bugs
Even after I altered /etc/fstab to mount by partition label, the installer
aborted in the same way when it couldn't mount the swap partition.
Is your swap partition referenced by label?
It's not. Can one label a partition for swap?
Yes. And we've been doing so on installs since FC3 :)
