Description Jerry Vonau 2008-03-23 21:28:48 UTC
Description of problem:
At the boot prompt enter upgrade, anaconda offers to set root password and
partition harddrive.

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

How reproducible:
Try to boot with upgrade

Steps to Reproduce:
1. At the boot prompt enter upgrade
Actual results:
Upgrade not offered,

Expected results:
Look for a system to upgrade.

Additional info:
I have 2 systems on different drives, doesn't find either one.
If I boot to rescue, I'm prompted to enter the passphase for the encrypted one. 
I don't see upgrade being passed from loader to anaconda in /tmp/anaconda.log.
Missing the flag?

Shouldn't anaconda look for an installed system to upgrade by default? After
checking the code, upgradeany at the boot prompt produces the same results. 
log attached

This means we're not finding the partition.  Are you trying to upgrade an
encrypted partition?  If so, that's not currently supported

Comment 3 Jerry Vonau 2008-03-24 02:06:34 UTC
Not encrypted, VolGroup00 on sda in the log, is the target. 

FWIW, the encrypted one is on sdb, is found, prompted for a passphase and
mounted, if I boot rescue mode. The normal install on sba is not offered as choice.

F-9 Beta show some improvement but still not offered upgrade.
I think the findrootparts in upgrade.py is the problem when calling
findExistingRootPartitions. Don't have time to test right now.

Well, I remove the second installed system that was on the second drive via
fdisk, and now I'm offered the upgrade option. 

Comment 7 Jerry Vonau 2008-04-11 14:32:38 UTC
fixed with 

Offered to upgrade both systems found, one on sda3 (VG), and the encrypted one
on sdb3.... :-)
