Description Timothy Murphy 2007-06-03 00:11:52 UTC
Description of problem:
Attempting to upgrade FC-6 to F-7,
old system is found but said to be at /dev/sda5 not /dev/hda5

I was told that the swap partition /dev/hda7 given in /etc/fstab
could not be found.
So I commented out this line in /etc/fstab.
But now when I tried to upgrade I got the error message:

"Exception Occurred
An unhandled exception has occurred.
This is most likely a bug.
Please save a copy of the detailed exception
and file a bug report against anaconda at http://bugzilla.redhat.com"

Exception details listed:
Traceback (most recent call first):
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/upgrade_bootloader_qui.py", line 78,
    in _newToLibata if l.strip()[0] == "#".
