Mount of vfat partition doesn't work after upgrade
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
My server had to OS, NT 4 and RH 6.1 and worked fine for over a year. It has one vfat partition which is accessible from both OS.
After the upgrade from RH 6.1 to 7.0 I get the message
/dev/hda6 has wrong major or minor number when I issue the command
mount -t vfat /dev/hda6 /nt
I can't reproduce this - I have no problems whatsoever mounting a fat filesystem
(generated by DOS, though, no Microsoft products in here).
Does mount -t msdos work?
Is the partition there if you look at fdisk -l /dev/hda?
After complete reinstallation of RH 7.0, the problem disappeared, but there must be something wrong with the upgrade script. One of my friend at the
research center experienced exactly the same on a dual boot server.
Assigning to anaconda
Requesting QA try to reproduce this issue.
unfortunately, we haven't seen this problem in our tests here (using generic
test lab hardware) upgrading from a minimal 6.2 -> 7.0 ... if you find any
additional details that help us reproduce what you saw, please reopen the issue
