Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 498120
Upgrade using CD fails when fstab has 'ecryptfs' line.
Last modified: 2009-05-07 14:31:14 EDT
Description of problem:
During the 'upgrade' process of a Fedora 10 machine to Rawhide using a Fedora-11-beta DVD, I had a traceback while trying to mount the filesystems at the beginning of the installation process.
Commenting out the ecryptfs line I have in my fstab fixed the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Add this line to /etc/fstab, then attempt to upgrade using a DVD.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add this line to /etc/fstab:
/home/sthorne/.work /home/sthorne/work ecryptfs relatime,exec,noauto,ecryptfs_key_bytes=16,ecryptfs_cipher=aes,ecryptfs_sig=deadbeefbabe,key=passphrase,user 0 0
2. Reboot into installation DVD
3. Attempt to upgrade the system using the DVD.
Able to continue
dlehman was working on a plan to ignore and preserve lines in /etc/fstab that we didn't understand. Reassigning.
This should be fixed in anaconda-184.108.40.206-1.
This worked for me with the latest rawhide.
