Description rhbugs 1999-05-28 13:02:36 UTC
Hi,
  I have RH Alpha (5.2) which I upgraded to 6.0; I've
also seen this in previous RH versions.

  I have a set of discs mounted under /discs - i.e.
/dev/sd??  /discs/deskapps
/dev/sd??  /discs/cross

etc.

When upgrading the system the installer fails at the point
where it tries to find the system to upgrade; it appears it
is screwing up when it has to try and mount discs other than
on the system root directory.

I had to edit my /etc/fstab and take those out during the
upgrade.

Dave

It would be more helpful if we had a dump of your partition
information of your system so that we can try to recreate the problem
in our lab. Thanks.
