Description Ray Todd Stevens 2007-10-16 22:31:27 EDT
Description of problem:

Was upgrading a fc5 server to fc7.  Tried to do this directly doing a cd based
over the network (http).   Got a message that I needed to file a bug report.  
Did a search first and found the error.   It said that it was a bug and that it
would not be fixed because fc5 was to old.  So I upgraded fc5 to fc6.   Then
attempted to upgrade fc6-fc7.   I got a worse result   now it won't boot.  
Included here are the two dumps.  (failed is the attempt fc5-fc7)   fc6fc7  is
the fc6-fc7 attempt.

Message PackageSackError: No Package Matching kernel.i686 in both cases.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Only have one computer like this

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

This is a panasonic tough book lap top  cf72.

Interestingly enough the file that the anoconda message says to upload to
bugzilla will in fact not upload because it is to large.    I have placed it on
a server listed above along with the version from the previous message.

I have done a number of these upgrades using the same cd method that is
specificed in the documentation.   Frankly most don't work and I end up with
trashed drives.    All kinds of different failures each time.     Is the problem
that the documented cdrom based upgrade method not actually work????
