Description of problem:
Installer runs fine until it's time to install packages. Then says one or
systems have not been cleanly unmounted, even though I did a halt or reboot
root in 6.2. Screens 2 and 4 indicate that it is reading hdd which is the
(empty) . I put a vfat zip in and it says to run fsck. I will try a linux
formatted disk tomorrow.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Halt system 6.2
2. Run 7.1 installer from CD, answer questions
3. Says one or more file systems not cleaning unmounted.
4. HIt OK and it reboots
Actual Results: reboot
Expected Results: I would like to continue the install.
I can't upgrade until I can figure this out.
Can you attach the /etc/fstab file of your 6.2 system? Also, the output of
'fdisk -l /dev/hda' and 'mount' would be helpful too.
Created attachment 18470 [details]
When I do fdisk on /dev/hdd
/dev/hdd4 NOT hda that you indicated
it has a * on the BOOT disk. I don't know where this comes from?
Do any of the partitions on your system other than / contain an /etc/fstab file?
[root@EPC-STEVE-ALLEN /]# mount
/dev/sda6 on / type ext2 (rw)
none on /proc type proc (rw)
/dev/sda2 on /boot type ext2 (rw)
none on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
/dev/hdb5 on /mnt/drive1 type vfat (rw)
/dev/sdb1 on /usr type ext2 (rw)
automount(pid420) on /misc type autofs (rw,fd=5,pgrp=420,minproto=2,maxproto=3)
/dev/hdc on /mnt/cdrom type iso9660 (ro,noexec,nosuid,nodev,user=allens)
[root@EPC-STEVE-ALLEN /]# find /boot -name "*fstab*"
[root@EPC-STEVE-ALLEN /]# find /mnt/drive1 -name "*fstab"
[root@EPC-STEVE-ALLEN /]# find /usr -name "*fstab"
[root@EPC-STEVE-ALLEN /]# find / -name "*fstab*"
find: /proc/6/fd: Permission denied
Although I could not find any errors about filesystems being not
cleanly unmounted, and 6.2 system worked fine.
1. Reboot with linux -b
2. Enter root password
3. fsck /dev/sdb1
---Several errors found
4. Install is currently running
