anaconda is unable to upgrade system, installed on hda
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:00 EST
Description of problem:
I tried to update FC4 system, installed on /dev/hda. Since there are no hd*
devices in FC7, I got message "unable to mount /dev/hda4" and installer ended
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC4 on /dev/hda
2. boot f7 6.92 and try to upgrade FC4
It will fail with error message "unable to mount /dev/hdaX"
Upgrade should work

Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against test1/2/3. This
isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.
This is a bulk message -- I apologize if this was actually meant to be targeted
against a different release. If so, please fix or let me know. Thanks.
