Description Adam Huffman 2007-02-02 01:11:16 UTC
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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to DVD
2. Select upgrade
Actual results:
Installer aborts

Expected results:
Installation proceeds normally

Additional info:
I had to insert manually the pata_amd module - this has been noted in other bugs

Comment 1 Adam Huffman 2007-02-05 00:42:45 UTC
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.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2007-02-05 21:14:42 UTC
Is your swap partition referenced by label?

Comment 3 Adam Huffman 2007-02-06 13:46:52 UTC
It's not.  Can one label a partition for swap?

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2007-02-26 19:11:48 UTC
Yes.  And we've been doing so on installs since FC3 :)
