fstab containing /dev/proc fails upgrade
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:14 EST
Somehow my FC-6 machine had fstab containing:
/dev/proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
This caused this error box in anaconda after choosing Upgrade:
Unable to mount filesystem
An error occurred mounting device proc as /proc. You may continue installation,
but there may be problems.
I have no idea how /dev/proc ended up in fstab, but Google seems to indicate

Please try anaconda-184.108.40.206 and let me know if it's working better for you.
