fstab from affected system

fstab from affected system.

I've already had to edit the fstab to get this far, since I had some rbind lines in there that anaconda was also choking on.

I don't think it matters here but I'm doing something a bit unusual in that I'm upgrading a server machine remotely using the rawhide boot.iso. I've exported the server disk using nbd and created a kvm guest with the nbd as sda. The main reason I'm doing this is because anaconda just didn't grok the md raid setup I had (udevsettle kept hanging for no obvious reason at the filesystem searching stage).
Comment 3 David Lehman 2009-04-24 19:07:26 EDT
Both bind mounts and swap files should get mounted correctly as of anaconda-, which was built today and should be in rawhide in a day or two.
Comment 4 James Laska 2009-05-22 08:44:10 EDT
Martin:  Are you able to verify that the reported issue has been resolved with the latest anaconda?  The process for downloading and installing rawhide directly is available at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/Rawhide#Direct_Rawhide_install.
Comment 5 Martin Ebourne 2009-05-22 09:43:52 EDT
I've already upgraded this system by commenting the fstab entries out during the upgrade. In fact all my systems are now on F11 pre-release so I've got nothing left to upgrade.

It's not working. See Bug 503830.
Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 10:09:15 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Ok -- one bug report per bug. If your swap file exists, then this is your bug. It has been resolved in anaconda-12.0-1.

If your bug involves an invalid swap line causing an anaconda crash, your bug is 503830. I have proposed a patch to resolve that issue and will update that bug accordingly when something changes.
