Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 281031
Upgrade fails - anaconda crashes
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:15 EST
Description of problem:
Trying to upgrade to FC7, but didn't have enought (1.1GB) space
for the process. This was reported and I rebooted the extant
system to find some space. When I restarted the upgrade it failed
right away with an anaconda crash.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to upgrade a system with insufficient space.
2. Reboot & make space
3. Retry the upgrage
The problem is that once the upgrade is underway, the file
'/etc/modprobe.conf' is renamed on the target system to allow
anaconda to build/install a new one. If the upgrade fails, then
this file is left missing which gives the upgrade tool fits the
next time around.
Once I figured this out, I booted the extant system and copied the
saved version. Restarting the upgrage process then succeeded.

This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
