Try to mount filesystems as ext3

Preupgrade failed for me, since anaconda couldn't read the kickstart file from my /boot partition. It turned out that it fails an attempt to mount -t ext2 /boot due to unsupported optional features. If I remember correctly, it did not fail all of my repeated attempts, but in the end I couldn't get the F-10 kernel mount my ext3 /boot with -t ext2. I had to work around by removing the journal with tune2fs -o ^has_journal, after which the upgrade completed successfully.

Attached patch tries to address the problem.

We should probably do better and switch to just doing mount -t auto at this point as we're using real mount(8) as opposed to calling mount(2) ourselves
Comment 2 Lubomir Rintel 2008-12-23 17:06:32 EST
Yes, that certainly makes sense.
Comment 3 Chris Lumens 2009-01-05 12:43:28 EST
This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.  Thanks for the bug report.
