Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 242286
Cannot upgrade ThinkPad T23 from Fedora-6 to Fedora-7
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
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:
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:
