Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 530306
Preupgrade doesn't work if computer doesn't have CD/DVD drive
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:11:51 EST
Description of problem:
Using pre-upgrade to upgrade from Fedora 11 (latest updates as at 21/10/2009) to rawhide (21/10/2009) on a computer which doesn't have a CD/DVD rom drive.
Booting the "Upgrade to Rawhide" Grub menu option, anaconda stops with the message "Unable to find any devices of the type needed for this installation type. Would you like to manually select your driver or use a driver disk?" with the options "Select driver / Use a driver disk / Back"
On the other VT (I think VT 3) the last messages displayed are
" INFO : setting up kickstart"
" ERROR : got to setupCdrom without a CD device"
" INFO : setting language to en_US.UTF-8"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rawhide (tested on 19/10/2009 and 21/10/2009)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run preupgrade to upgrade F11 to rawhide on desktop without CD / DVD rom
2. Reboot computer and select "Upgrade to Rawhide" kernel
Upgrade fails seeking device driver
I'm not sure if this is a preupgrade bug or an anaconda bug, filed against preupgrade because that's what I used and I don't have the hardware or time to run tests against anaconda by itself (without using preupgrade).
Wrong error & component - will open under anaconda
