Description Michael A. McLean 2001-09-10 13:15:27 EDT
* re0909.2-i386
* English / CD-ROM / Minimal / Partitionless Upgrade (from 7.1)

Error message on boot:
Sep 10 08:56:53 test101 umount: umount: /initrd: device is busy 
Sep 10 08:56:53 test101 rc.sysinit: Unmounting initrd:  failed 

Possibly related error message in upgrade.log:
Upgrading kernel.

Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2001-09-10 16:45:39 EDT
this is either initscripts, filesystem, or mkinitrd.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-09-26 11:06:15 EDT
Is this continually reproducible?
Comment 3 Michael A. McLean 2001-09-26 16:19:27 EDT
Yes.  I've got it set up on a machine right now if you want to play with it.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-09-26 16:42:46 EDT
Will be fixed in 6.40.1-1.
