Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4396
Installation breaks when installing from the partition to be mounted /
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
When using the local hard-drive partition that is going to
be mounted root as installation source, setup reports an
"Failed to create symlink for package source."
Console 3 shows:
"* failed to create symlink /mnt//: File exists"
You cannot do this with the Red Hat installer. You must have the
source files on a non-critical filesystem (that is not /, /usr, /var
or any other place that the install needs to write files to). Closing
report as it is not a bug, but rather a fundamental of the installer
