Description of problem:
Upgrading an F-10 install to Fedora 11 (anaconda-220.127.116.11) prompted '/' filesystem migration (http://jlaska.fedorapeople.org/fs-update.png). I've never seen this prompt before.
I did *not* boot with "ext4migrate"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
* Seeing this on 3 attempts so far
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F-10 autopart
2. Boot F-11 (anaconda-18.104.22.168)
3. Select existing "F-10" partition to upgrade
* Prompted to migrate existing ext3 '/' partition to ext4
* Never seen this prompt before ... is this expected?
Does anyone know if this is an expected behavior? It's okay if it is, this was just the first time I've seen (and tested) that screen when testing upgrades in Fedora 11. I wanted to be sure before we release.
You should only be offered this screen if you have ext4migrate on the command line.
This will be fixed in anaconda-22.214.171.124-1, should we build that for F11.
I think so, it's a screen that isn't intended for general consumption and hasn't received focused testing. My sense is having this the default behavior should be held off until post-F11.
Jesse, your thoughts from a rel-eng perspective?
I agree, this should only show up with the cli argument.
Confirmed fix in anaconda-126.96.36.199
