Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 232812
f7-test2 does not put boot files in migrated /boot partition
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:59 EST
Description of problem:
During installation, the installer migrates existing /boot from ext2 to ext3.
f7 / is a separate partition from existing / and is formatted new. /boot is
migrated successfully to ext3. /etc/fstab entries are set up successfully
(i.e., separate entry for /boot). However, system.map, config, grub directory,
initrd, and vmlinuz are installed into /boot directory on / partition, not into
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I only tried once, but I expect I could do it always.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with existing ext2 older installation
2. In installer, migrate /boot partition from ext2 to ext3
3. In installer, format fresh / partition for f7-test2
f7 /boot files are in /boot directory on / partition
f7 /boot files should be in /boot partition
hda1 /boot (common to fc5 and f7)
hda2 / (fc5)
hda3 swap (common to fc5 and f7)
hda4 / (f7)
Conjecture: The migration of the /boot partition from ext2 to ext3 appears to
result in the /boot partition not being mounted during installation.
Tested this in rawhide today and it appears to be working correctly now.
