Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 49865
installing on a preexiting ext3 partition fails
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:35:06 EDT
I just tried to install beta2 (TUI since GUI is broken for me). I used the
previous partitions hd1->swap hda2-> /(ext3) and forgot to select to
format /. Result:
Anaconda fails "unable to mount / " and wants to reboot.
Didn't it warn you that if you do not format '/' the install will not work?
No, it did not ask if the partition should be formated or not.
This situation should definately be caught in beta 3. Please retry.
Closing due to inactivity. Please reopen if you still see the problem in beta 3.
No, it still does not work in beta4! The error from mount is
EXT2-fs: ide(3,1): couln't mount because of optional features (4)
and the installer will offer me to reboot as the only option.
fixed in CVS.
