Description Ed McKenzie 2001-01-18 02:32:52 EST
Upgrading a 7.0 install with anaconda-7.0 crashes the installer right after
it asks whether the user would like to upgrade individual packages,
regardless of the answer to that question. The exception raised indicates
that the root has not been mounted.
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-19 12:08:43 EST
Could you please attach the traceback you get?
Comment 2 Ed McKenzie 2001-01-19 17:14:13 EST
Oops, I forgot all my drives were on the Promise controller :)

This particular issue may go away once kernel 2.4 is shipping, but I think it
would be a good idea nevertheless to have some sort of error dialog ("No hard
disks found! Bailing out") rather than a crash... an installer can never be
robust enough.

Though this crash should be fairly easy to reproduce, I can still provide a
traceback if you still want one,
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-26 18:47:08 EST
Yes please add the traceback so I can document this failure better.

It'll be a few days. My CD-ROM drive decided it didn't need a disc tray, leaving
me no way to boot the system CD.

Ok thanks.

I have the identical problem mentioned by nagaraj_itt@yahoo.com.
I believe it has some to do with mounting the root. The problem happened rt 
after a sudden power down of the equipment.

this appears to be random media/hardware/memory corruption errors.
