Description Mat Booth 2008-03-25 14:38:17 UTC
Description of problem:

Anaconda 11.4.0.55 threw when trying to upgrade the boot loader in an upgrade
from F8 to F9 Beta. See attached stack trace and log files.

I downloaded the boot image for the x86_64 F9 Beta that was released today,
booted from it and chose to upgrade my existing x86_64 F8 installation using an
URL install from the site I downloaded the boot image from. I also chose to
update the boot loader during the install process (the recommended option).


Additional info:

This was on my ASUS F3SR notebook, dual core, 64bit, ATI HD2400.

I'm seeing same backtrace (on both x86_64 and i386, and from a variety of
starting points for upgrade, F8, F9-alpha, random rawhide snapshot).

anacdump.txt from upgrade on Thinkpad X61 from F8 to F9. The new 2.6.25 kernel
from F9 was successfully
added to my grub.conf and all old F8 kernels removed, EXCEPT for the install
boot kernel
reference I created by hand. It's my way of starting the install--to copy from
the isolinux dir on
the install media and then creating a stanza referencing /boot/vmlinuz-install
and /boot/initrd-install.img
in my grub.conf. hth

If you want somebody from engineering who is able to reproduce this, let me know.
