Automounting from fstab warning
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:06 EST
Description of problem:
Just downloaded the Fedora 7 Release Candidate and started to update my FC6
After verifying sha1 checksum, and running the verification check from Anaconda,
I proceeded with graphical update.
Immedeately after selecting that I wanted to update the Fedora Core installation
on /dev/sda2, it popped up a warning saying it cannot mount either one of my dvd
players, followed by a critical error because my swap partition contained a
1 fstab has auto in it, ergo anaconda wants to mount it.
This produces a warning if it fails, I can live with that.
2 I don't know if the installer uses swap space, but it tried to mount my swap
space and failed, forcing me to restart in fc6, reformat the swap and reboot in
the installer. This time everything worked like a charm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Can you attach the /etc/fstab file from the system you are trying to upgrade?
Alas I cannot. Too much time has gone by and many revision have been made to
that file by me since.
Thanks though for the reply.
Well, if it comes up again in the future, feel free to reopen the bug or open a
new one. Without more data, there's not much we can do on this problem.
I understand. Thank you for your time.
