Upgrade to F8 fails on non-default swap location
Last modified: 2008-08-02 19:40:37 EDT
Description of problem:
Unable to upgrade if swap is not on VolGroup00
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
unkown, I've only doen it once and had to fresh-install to work-around
Steps to Reproduce:
1.F7 installed on VolGroup07 instead of the default VolGroup00 (to work around
completely insufficient failed-disk handling in lvm and in recovery disk).
2.Install F8 in upgrade mode.
Install fails almost immediately, with an unable to find swap on VolGroup00 message.
Normal upgrade installation.
I only installed F7 in VolGroup07 because of prior bad history of trying to
recover from a corrupted root disk by installing a second disk, and being unable
to mount the partially-failed filesystem because it was part of the same volume
group as the new root disk. As an aside, someone, please fix the completely
broken lvm tools that do not handle this very-common scenario at all.
Reassigning to installer component (anaconda) as this is more of an installer
problem than a problem with the component setup.
Read ya, Phil
Have you been able to reproduce the problem in F9?
Problem does not occur in F9 fresh install. Presumed fixed.
