Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 2663
Installing from harddisk partition and specifying mounting point for same partition makes installation fail.
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
I installed redhat 6.0 from a partition on the same hard
Things were smooth until I specified that the partition
from where I was installing would be mounted as a given
directory on my final installation (disk druid, when
it shows the different partitions and we can specify
the mounting point). Apparently, redhat tried to remount
the same partition again and this generated an error.
I assumed that the data I was typing was going to be
used primarily to create the fstab
file rather than to mount the partitions at that point.
Anyways, once I noticed that it was trying to mount the
partition again, I decided not to specify it as mountable
in disk druid and things worked out (so later I modified
fstab by hand).
Thanks for all the good work.
