Description Warren Togami 2007-09-04 16:54:34 EDT
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
many other cases of this being valid.  Perhaps this is a corner case we should

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