Description Need Real Name 2001-05-15 01:40:25 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; Nav)

Description of problem:
Installer runs fine until it's time to install packages.  Then says one or
more file
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
zip drive
(empty) .  I put a vfat zip in and it says to run fsck.  I will try a linux
formatted disk tomorrow.

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

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.

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?

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-05-15 12:33:26 EDT
Do any of the partitions on your system other than / contain an /etc/fstab file?

Comment 6 Need Real Name 2001-05-15 17:16:58 EDT

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
